  13. Cass says:

    I received a 21. My mom is one person who always thinks I’m being dramatic when I tell her I am terrified of little holes clustered together. Ant hills get me REALLY bad but she’s always just told me that I need to grow up. I’m so happy to know that there is actually something out there that can put a name to my irrational fears. I don’t even know what it is about them, my body just tenses up, I break out in goosebumps EVERYWHERE and it just feels like my skin is crawling. I hate it. I’ve tried exposing myself to pictures so that way maybe my brain can get used to seeing it but no, if anything all it does is make me lose the contents in my tummy. I feel like such a weirdo.

  14. wacky says:

    0, I don’t mind looking at them.

  15. Olivia says:

    23-I had to go and vomit after the test. Phew!

  16. Amanda Abbott says:

    When I was a child, I had recurring nightmares about my skin being covered in holes with seeds in them. The seeds looked like sunflower kernels. The nightmare was very real. I was sexually molested, repeatedly, as a child and I have C-Ptsd with DD. This fear has never left me, but I try to look at pics and comprehend they are not real. However, lately, my skin persistently itches and my mind feels like these things will begin appearing on skin. I have always felt, in my adult life, that this fear comes from the shame and disgust of having been sexually abused

  17. Rodrigo says:

    Hmm… hard to say, frankly I was disgusted by every picture just as much as i’d be if i were looking at an open wound or necrosing tissue. Despite of the disgust I could look at it for pretty much as its necessary, I guess I just find it something gross after all?

  18. Kaylaa says:

    i mean i didnt mind looking at them but it wasnt pleasant , i t makes me kinda want to help the person an like shave off the holes or pluck em out w tweezers .

  19. daverwin says:
