Chromoetophobia: The Fear of Money

Chrometophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of money.  Those who suffer from this phobia experience a deep feeling of dread when having to deal with money.  Chrometophobia is possibly caused by an obsessive-compulsive fear of germs on money.

A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
