Phobia Phriday (with the Preacher)
Welcome to another edition of our weekly posts about very random and often phunny phobias which have been medically documented in one reference book or another. Each Phriday we list, define, and give an example of one of these irrational phears, phictional or otherwise.*
Porphyrophobia - fear of the color purple (not Oprah and the movie...the actual color)
Can you imagine living in a world where you felt uneasy looking at this?
We also know that porphyrophobia often significantly impacts the quality of life. It can cause panic attacks and keep people apart from loved ones and business associates.
Don't want the porphyrophobic in-laws over for Christmas? Decorate with these....problem solved.
Can you imagine telling your college professor that you can't do that research paper because you have a fear of the color purple?
As always, have a wonderful weekend in the Lord Jesus, and remember if you are porphyrophobic, stay away from the tulip gardens.
