Your Phobia of Holes Seems to Be Severe
Your responses are similar to people with severe Trypophobia. Seeing images or being exposed to certain types of patterns or holes makes you feel abnormally anxious. That is probably affecting your daily life as well. So, it is best to talk to a therapist before it turns into general anxiety. While there is no particular cure for the phobia of holes, several methods such as CBT are satisfyingly effective.
Your Fear of Holes Is Not Worrying
Most people find some images of holes or patterns disgusting. But that does not make them a Trypophobic person. Your fear seems to be expected. And it is not dangerously affecting your life. However, if you feel like it is bothering you, try the 5s method. (Breathe for 5 sec., hold your breath for 5 sec., and exhale for 5 sec.). That is a way to control your feelings when exposed to some images or scenes.
You Are Not Trypophobic At All
Well, it seems like you are just overthinking your thoughts. Your responses show that you have no Trypophobic traits. You might still hate to see some patterned images. However, that does not make you a person who has a phobia of holes. You are a-okay. So, stop worrying about your feelings.
