Phobia of balloons

I just wanted to admit it, although haven't had experiences as of late..

Since I was little I've had a horrible phobia of balloons. Like I think it's more of the popping noise or expecting it to always burst, but I also developed a fear of just being NEAR them. It sets me into a panic, especially in Elementary where I felt like I was having a panic attack and had to go to the nurses office.

Does anyone else have this sort of fear? Some of my family thinks its silly.

Re: Phobia of balloons


Just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I've had the fear of balloons since I was young. I think it is the noise too because of my fear of fireworks also. I am so bad I don't like to open those biscuit canisters. I know... I feel silly.

I can be around them but I get very nervous if I think the balloon is going to pop. I can't stand being around when someone is inflating them in the store. I am a nervous wreck during those times. Lol.
