Placophobia: The Fear of Tombstones

Placophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of tombstones.  This phobia is closely related to Thantophobia, the fear of death.
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.
