Top 10 Unusual Phobias, Vol. 1

Goto next slide#3: Eremophobia

What it is:

The morbid dread of being alone.

Word history:

The Greek word erēmia means desert (a place where there are no other people).

Bonus points:

The word hermit shares the same Greek root, but a hermit may find solace rather than dread in solitude.
