Okay, being afraid of stuff is normal. So don't back out of answering the question.

I have small fears like heights, and confined spaces :shudder: . Things that I'd just rather not have around. But there are some things that just phase me. I'm okay with insects... just not where I sleep. My least favorite insect, the one that I will have to kill from a distance are centipedes. :shudder: :shudder: And I hesitate to say it, but I might as well come to terms with it... I don't like horses. I love pictures of them, sometimes, but I cannot be around them. One time my sisters friend was riding her horse galloping really fast straight for me; of course i flipped out and jumped over the fence. Too many have taken nips at my shoulder for me to be comfortable around them.

So share your fears... it might be fun!!

not always, but during certain times during the year i am really paranoid of the idea of rabid dogs, or stray dogs in general. around where we live alot of people let their dogs run loose, so there are times when i wont even let the girls play in the yard for like a week or so just because of that fact. (it all stems from watching Cujo as a kid)
since i have been in the south i am also afraid to approach snakes and spiders, which up in new england wouldnt phase me at all.
oh ya, i also HATE being crowded by people, or when someone has to unnecassarily touch my hair or my shoulder or something when talking to me, makes me want to crawl out of my skin

and i suppose i should be afraid of horses, but i totally love them. like i have said before i have been stepped on, thrown off, fallen off, been kicked, been bitten and have even bitten back once or twice... :rolleyes:

:monk: THAT'S FUNNY! Becasue I don't like being around cows. They just scare me. The weird thing is though that's pretty much all of south dakota is raising cows and farming. So how I got to be this way I don't know.

I have a huge fear of losing my family, any one of them. If anything happened to Peter or my parents or siblings, my niece...any of them, I really don't know how I would cope. We're all very close.

I know this may seem silly to some people but I also have a horrible fear that I might not be able to have children. Often people don't know til they start trying and then find that there is something wrong. I have longed for so long to be able to carry my own children that I get insanely worried that it might not happen. Silly, I suppose but that's how much I look forward to having them.

Also, on a side note, I hate car washes. I still sit in the car when I go through them but I have this horrible fear that the brush mechanism is just going to keep coming down on the car and crush the whole thing with me in it. I have only been like that for about 5 years. Loved them before i actually saw it happen in my local petrol station! The woman was alright but knowing that she could have been totally crushed scared me so much. I try to face my fear every time but I am still really scared.

I have a fear that when i goto heaven my angels wont be waiting for me.

Other than that, i have a genuine fear of moths! cant stand the little :bang: .the big ones are the worst, and although i dont swat them i attract them. My worst nightmares involve being attacked by a swarm of moths. Butterflys im ok with....maybe coz they are cute lol.

Anyway, must run, ALL the 1000's of students are back today grrrrrrrr.......wish me luck.

I have horrible OCD... which reminds me... I have to remind my mom to make an appoint with the phychiatrist... im out of meds.. hehe...

so yea, I'm really anal about everything, and I get really obbesessive and worry alot when it comes to pretty much anything that matters to me, especially my dog. If i even think about the day that he wont be with me anymore, I get choked up and kinda want to cry.

and my small fears:

~ confined spaces
~ the dark
~ heights
~ anything that has to do with water slides (i dont know why)


ooh yea, and most importantly:

~ the giant 7 foot tall football players that weigh 375 pounds that go to my school :shudder:

LOL!@bobby, well you could always just do what my husband Joe did when he mock fought one of the football players-Jarod to be exact who is like twice Joe' size--(Joe is short like Dave)
anyways, Joe just jumped on his back, hung onto his neck and kicked his legs like crazy
it was pretty funny
and if that doesn't work, i guess you could always bite their ankles, or kick them in the knee :lmao:

Oh yeah, confined spaces and large crowds seriously bother me. Kind of claustrphobic. Stems from a bad experience as a child

Interesting post subject....
On an irrational more micro level....snakes. Especially venomous ones. Seems like an unfair advantage to be able to bite and POISON someone!!! :shock:
I hate snakes but it is irrational . They freak me out.
On a more macro, deeper level. Just things like the future.
I sort of worry more than I am scared. I worry about mankind. The decisions we will make, wars we will wage. I wonder about the lack of humanity sometimes and the greed that fuels it.
Then you have to worry about people you are close to who find themsleves in situations where they need help. Sickness or loss of employment. Wonder about the employment situation in the USA...it is that type of thing that will wake me up wondering in the middle of the night!!!
:rolleyes:

Hmmm, i'd say the thing that i'm afraid of the most has to be the fear of running over something big in me car...coz every night on my way home i kill a Rabbit, the fields round where i live are swamped with em!!! and almost not to long ago i ran down a young Deer :( ...nasty i know, prolly be a cow next or a horse :P
Animals dont like me driving they always try to stop me by kamikazi death, its starting to freak me out....ever since that Deer, i;v been 'living on the razors edge' it seems!?!? :burn:
