Subject: What are you scared of?

Written By: QueenAmenRa on 03/24/03 at 05:23 p.m.

Sure there's the usual fear of the dark.  And most everybody is scared of spiders right?
Well I am scared to death of any type of crustaceans and I don't know why. It's really bad at my house cuz there's crawdad holes EVERYWHERE and when it rains in spring they all come out and my mom and sister take advantage of every opportunity to shove them in my face.  :-[  scary
The worst thing was when we came home from church one night, and I was in the bathroom, and SOMEHOW my little sister convinced me to open the door.  There's Rhoda with a crawdad and my mom with a videocamera. (Note: all I was wearing was my blouse and underwears)  I jump behind the shower curtain...like that helps.  Well, you can just imagine the torture i was put through right? And then Rhoda decides it's funny to show the video 2 her friends at the next slumber party.   >:(

CLOSED DOORS  

I hate closing doors, especially to small places like public restrooms, etc., with the fear of getting locked in.

Where to begin. First of all, I am afraid of flying. The more and more I fly the more petrified I become. I do not fly well. I'm also afraid of driving. I think it has to do with my vision which isn't the greatest. I am trying to figure out if it really is my vision that makes me afraid to drive or if I am just using that as an excuse. But, at the moment what really scares me is what is going on in the world. I am so afraid that it is only going to get worse.

Gotta agree with you there, Dagwood. I can't be in a swimming pool or pond by myself either-too many slasher movies hahaha.

What I am most afraid of , and yes this is v. morbid, is that when I die, they will start the autopsy before I have left my body so I will have to witness it. I have had repeated dreams (nightmares) about it.  :o

1. heights - i feel like i'm going to fall and die upon impact; i can't even stand on chairs.
2. closed buildings/stores - i run past them with my eyes closed. :-[
3. bees/hornets/wasps - can't even watch 'em on tv.
4. spiders - ick.
5. flith - i have nightmares about being trapped in places that are covered in mold and mildew.
6. public restrooms/changing rooms - i had a nasty encounter with them at a pool... :-X
7. the people i love dying - i'm sick of funerals. :()
8. flying objects - this is one of the reasons why i do so poorly in phys ed. ;)
9. insects/bugs - with the exception of fireflies, butterflies, moths, ladybugs, and praying mantises.
10. not having my feet covered - see the comment on the public restrooms... :-X
11. sleeping with the door open - i'm afraid someone's gonna walk into my room and kill me.
12. churches with the lights out - they're too dark and quiet
13. walking down stairs - this is what i get for living in a one level house... :D (obviously, i've learned to deal with this one.)
14. escalators! - not the cool ones at airports where there are no stairs, just the moving stairs ones bother me. (if that made sense... ::))

i never realized i was so fearful.  O.o

I tend to confront my fears when possible.  I used to be afraid of needles (they scared me so much, I once had a tooth filled without any novacain because I wasn't letting them put a needle anywhere near me).  But then I realized I couldn't donate blood without a needle being involved, so I dealt with it.  I'm a little bit afraid of heights but I won't let it stop me from skydiving.

The only fear I haven't beat is the fear I have of loosing those I love.  Even when I was a small child, back when I believed, when I prayed, I would always ask god to either let us all live to a very old age and die at the same time, or to let me die first.  Kids are silly.

I've heard quite a few people I know in the "real world" that get freaked out by clowns.  And if you think about it, it's kinda creepy.

I did think of a real fear to share.  I have Merinthophobia the fear of being bound or tied up.  I can also say I know of the specifice incident I developed this fear.  When I had my car accident and the Drs. were putting my nose back on my face I came to on the table.  Apparently with a severe head injury they can't use anasthesia cause of potential damage to the brain.  I remember waking up under some intense pain and not having a clue what was going on.  It was just some people hovering over me and a very bright light in my eyes.  I know that I struggled hard against the straps keeping me down and the Dr. shouting at me that he was doing some delicate work and I need to calm down.  I returned a very spririted response to him and thankfully passed out.  That was the only incident I remember during the 4 days after the accident.
When I get in a crowded situation, or I have someone attempting to "restrain" me, the flight or fight response is raised, rapid heartbeat, shallow breathing, muscles tense, everything.  I don't allow massages to be given and "woman on top" very rarely is that option given.

death obviously...other fears:

- im afraid of fires, or i should say, me being on fire and getting burned all over my body

- ghosts, although i also feel very curious about it at the same time...

- afraid of suffocating, probably because i had my share of thinking i was going to suffocate thanks to asthma attacks ::)

- wasps, great thing that i had one visiting me inside my pyamas once while i was sleeping :P

- getting attacked or someone breaking into my house

I think lately, I've developed a fear of my church building.  We have to stay in town on Sunday afternoons, but I hate going to Wal-Mart or wherever with my mom so I'm like "I'll just stay here."  Then after they leave it's like "Wait a minute...I don't like being at church by myself..." I swear I hear creaking above me and footsteps in the kitchen, and I'm like "AUGH! SOME HOBO BROKE INTO THE CHURCH!"
And what really made me jump one time is I'm playing the piano in the auditorium then I stop cuz I think I heard that same kinda noise....so everything's quiet....and I'm listening... and all of a sudden the air conditioner kicks on (which is right next to the piano)  Talk about  :o

My 7 1/2 year old daughter is not the least bit afraid of slugs or snails.  Every year, she pesters me to bring one (or more) into the house as a "pet".  And every year I put her off by saying I don't know what they eat.  I could probably find out if I wanted to, I just don't want they nasty things in the house.  :-X

As for me, I'm not afraid of slugs *or* snails.  I will even pick them up once in a while.  And snakes?  If I'm certain it's not poisonous, (which I'm not) I will happily handle them.

Bugs, spiders, crabs?  Fine with me.  Almost everything else everyone has mentioned does not bother me at all, or the chances of me encountering it are so remote, that I don't think about it.

But I can't deal with water any deeper than my knees.  Bathtub is ok, but ponds, lakes, even swimming pools get a wide berth.  My little brother in his total innocence d*mn near drowned me when I was little.  He thought it was funny to see me thrash under water while he sat on my chest.  He had no clue it was dangerous or bad, so he kept doing it every chance he got. (I think he was 2 or 3 at the time.)  The problem was, even though I told my mother repeatedly, she never caught him in the act, so she refused to believe it was happening.

I'm also totally freaked out at the possibility that I might run into my very violent ex on the street one day.

Perhaps the Queen would like to relate the story of when she and her racoon sister were being baby-sat by big sis, (the Mystic), while the folks were away on their two-week "Happy 25th Anniversary" vacation cruise, and, despite her promise, Mumsy conveniently forgot to un-set her live-trap with which she catches her 'possums, which really came in handy for the Mystic as she was trying to get everyone ready to go off to church that first Sunday morning...

Yup... I shot me a possum once. Armadillo, too, but that was just to put 'im out of his misery...

Now I get to live in a snail-infested apartment complex.  The problem wouldn't be so bad if they'd just stop watering the sidewalks...  :P

Well I am scared of wasps, they scare the heck out of me. I swear if one is anywhere in sight I will run away and hide. They FREAK ME OUT!!! I am also scared of big bodies of water. But let me try to think of something original...hmmm... well since the Queen brought up the subject of church and hobos that reminds me of the time that freaky-looking dude came into the church service and me and Ruth were afraid he was going to shoot someone...but that doesn't really count. Well lets see I dont know what else i am scared of. Oh yeah I'm scared of these little grasshopper things but they look like a cross between a grasshopper and a spider. Those things are soooooo freaky it's not even cool. And spiders in general, especially black widows. Uggghhhh. And what else.....hmm....sometimes the Queen scares me....won't tell you why.  :-X

I'm scared of any kind of worm.  ALso, ivy kinda creeps me out because you never really know what's under it.  There could be this whole colonie of worms just cutting themselves in half and procreating.

Also, I think clowns are the creepiest human like objects on the earth.  Anybody that dresses up in a big orange wig, makeup and big shoes then plays with children is just not right in my opinion!

No, I understand.  I used to be scared of the clown on Pee-Wee's big adventure.  (I was also scared of the cartoon Indians on Peter Pan, but that's a different story)

I may be afraid of crowds on a train.

So is that the reason why people wear their sunglasses on board? Are they afraid of being stared at? I wear mine and I'm not ashamed. 8)

Well this isn't really a fear it's more like an obsession...I can't stand having the door to my room open. I don't know why. I have to have my door closed or I freak out. It's so weird.  :P

Fear of clowns--Coulrophobia

It's one of the most common fears in the world, after Thanatophobia, which is fear of death.


I swear I have the complete phobia list memorized in my head    ;)

Ooh! Ooh! I know! I Know! :P 'Course I'm the one who TOLD you in the FIRST PLACE! Ok yall, here in Fletcher Oklahoma there's a lot of Comanche Indians (including my best friend, Jodie) and legend has it that Fletcher has nunnipedes or ninnipedes however you spell it, which are short little people with red eyes, and if you look them in the eye they turn your head around backwards. And then there's the Deer Woman...but we won't go into that story.  :-X There's all kinds of weird things out here in the boonies. But there's this legend that Fletcher is protected from bad weather and stuff becuz it was built on ancient Indian burial ground. Fletcher's kinda creepy. Boy I'm just babbling, huh? Guess I'll shut up now.  :P

I've also got this pathological fear that I think alot of people have (including Edgar Allan Poe) that I'll be in a coma or something and people will think I'm dead and bury me alive. It's completely irrational but nevertheless I want to be cremated. Fun stuff. :P
