    Default Fears and Phobias - aka things that scare the s**t out of you!

    Let's hear about them. Yes, I have all the cliche chick-fears, like snakes and spiders. But rollercoasters also scare the living hell out of me! The only kind I'll ride are the kiddie ones. Even then, the Fairly Odd Parents coaster at King's Island.....I be screamin'!!!

    And I DON'T do carwashes. Getting stuck between those gigantic soapy brushes. No way. Hubby does it for me.

    I have a very irrational fear of spiders and cars turning onto the road I am driving on from my left.

    The spiders started a couple of years ago when Broken got bit by a brown recluse several times on his leg. Holding his hand in the emergency room and watching what they had to do to fix him and all the pain he was in has made it to where I absolutely freak when I see them at all.

    The car thing I blame on ptsd from a car accident where I got T-boned on the passenger side where I was sitting. I cringe eveytime someone turns onto my lane. And that happens everyday. It's been 5 years since the accident and I still have these issues.

    Yeah, my biggest is snakes...they are just too unpredicatable and we have tons of them here in the grass as well as in our river. When you're swimming and you see a 3ft long water snake skimming along you can't feel more helpless!

    Extreme heights get to me if I have nothing under my feet. Flying doesnt bother me for whatever reason, but if I'm standing on something that sways even a little or there's nothing between my feet and the ground...I go motionless - almost catatonic.

    I'll go on those rides that drop your ass from 300 feet up once in a while, but I do NOT look down ever. I cant handle that.

    I have kind of the same issue. When I was 17, I had my first accident at a 4 way stop. I was turning left, and it is sort of a blind spot there, cars parked up and down both sides of the road, and it goes downhill right from the stop anyway. There was no one coming and I started to turn left, and a big old Ford van comes up that hill, speeding, and blows the stop sign and hits me almost head-on. He stopped and made sure I was alright....a few bruises and a little blood on my face was all I had. Old van -vs- Chevelle....not a lot of damage, but it hurt like hell. Was my first accident and pretty much my last. Now at 4-ways, my head is constantly looking around, wondering if i'm going to get hit. I avoid that intersection like the plague...and it's right in my hometown.

    BTW. The streering wheels on them older cars don't give AT ALL, and they aren't soft in any way either.

    I worked my way through college at a car wash. You're not the only one who has the car wash fear. We had several men and women nearly panic-stricken to go through the wash.

    Being broke.

    About 10 years ago I was married with 2 kids at home and for a stretch there I barely had any money coming in. It kept me up at nights stressed out like a motherfucker. Not a good way to live.


    Thankfully I've come a long way since then but to this day I've never forgotten how stressful and shitty that felt. Downright scary, actually. Hope I never know it again.

    I wouldn't say I have a fear of snakes, however we see tons of them on the farm. The worst is when you pick up a crawfish trap and there's one in there. I yell out a string of obscenities. I sound like somone who has tourettes. I then kill the bastard w/my shovel.

    Breaking down on the highway, especially at night. You never know who's gonna stop.

    And snakes.
