Linonophobia: The Fear of String

Linonophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of string.  Those who suffer from this phobia may view string as something that will restrain or confine them.  Linonophobia may be closely related to Claustrophobia, the fear of confined spaces.
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.
