    Is this an actual fear?

    I was looking at this:

    And when it got to the sun I started sweating. At sirius I started breathing heavily and by the end I almost fainted. It's terrifying. I'm scared of things going on forever and infinity, really, because of these dreams I have when I have fevers. Can people be afraid of large objects? I don't mean things like buildings, but I mean when things get HUGE, bigger than earth, way bigger than earth, bigger than the largest buildings. Far bigger. It's scary. Can people actually be afraid of that or is it just tied to my "going on forever" fear?

    Haha, it's like those weird, disjointed dreams I get when I'm sick- it feels like something is wrong.

    Haha, what are your dreams like? When I'm just having a normal stomach flu or something, it's usually me doing something normal, I'm at school or something, but something feels wrong and I can't put my finger on it- it's terrifying. When I'm really sick, I'll have a dream where someone makes a black hole, then I freak out and say something about how it'll make all the other black holes combine or something (I don't understand it myself when I wake up, but it makes sense in my dream.) The black hole will engulf the whole world, and it'll be counting to 100 billion to engulf the whole world. It'll be 2 dots going in circles trying to meet. It'll be counting really fast, and it feels scary and I can feel everything around me going really fast- it's not just the counting. The dream will go on until it reaches 100 billion. The dream seems to last forever, and I feel horrible and sick the whole way through it.

    Yes, the amount of phobias that exist are infinite (lol, sorry).

    We put prefixes to phobias only for those that are most common, but in reality, recurrent fear of anything you can think of is a phobia.

    What you're fearing is legit, whether it be megalophobia (fear of large objects), or apeirophobia (fear of infinity). Or even something else closer to your description, whether it has a recorded name or not.
    (no, I'm not knowledgeable on phobia types, I Googled those).

    I don't even know how to explain those dreams. I sometime get stuck counting things and the numbers just start to increase dramatically and it feels like I will never be able to do enough & oh god. I sound retarded. LOL
