Megalophobia: The Fear of Large Things

Megalophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of large things.  This phobia is defined loosely as a fear of large things but usually those who suffer from the phobia fear a specific large object such as an airplane, ship or blimp.
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.
