Default Phobias and how to stop them

OK, so pretty much everyone has a phobia. This is a thread where we can discuss our phobias and put forth ideas of how to overcome them.
For example, I'm emtophobic. That means the fear of vomiting. I'm emtophobic because I have a weak stomach, so if someone gets the stomach bug, the odds are-- I'll get it and I'll have it five times worse. So... I hate and fear barfing.
Anyone have any phobias? Anyone have any solutions?

I'm not sure what it's called, but I have a fear of pain.
I'm also scared of heights, but I'm more scared of falling from high places than just being high.
