Hey! I know everyone has a fear of something in their life. Do you want to know that how we can face this?

#1

I have worked hard to overcome my fear of heights. It is just small areas up high in the sky I fear. Or if I can't see out, like elevators. As dumb as it sounds it always scares me. I, again, have worked vary hard to over come this.

I HATE ELEVATORS!! To make things worse, people like to tell their 'trapped in an elevator' stories while in the elevator. "Did I tell you about that time i was stuck in an elevator for an hour and a half?" NO AND PLEASE DON'T

Both are a big no-no for me, though I am working hard on the height fear. The deep water fear is one I think I'll have for the rest of my life.

I used to have a night light for this very reason. My mom used to tell us if we were bad monsters would come and get us. I was so scared of the dark. It still gets me sometimes when I turn of the lights. I tend to just make a run right after I turn off the lights

(No offensive I really don't want to come off as rude or inconsiderate) I don't like snakes either. I really don't like venomous ones. I don't necessarily fear them, but I dislike them. I will see them and be like "ew, I don't like you". I have seen them on camping trips (three times) and I just kind of walk away. I have found some garden snakes at my house and I just decapitate the with a shovel. Then I bury them. I only do it so it does not cause trouble for others and so my dogs don't get it. (We have two rat terriers and a bossie). Once you see them enough it lessens the fear of them. Not all are bad but not all are good. 👍 (please don't hate or downvote I don't wanna get banned)

So even though my family is very well-off, we live in a smaller house and always try to save money, even though we can afford many expensive things. Thus, whenever I see my parents pay for something expensive, I feel sort of guilty and a little scared too. A lot of my parents’ friends live in huge mansions, and the amount of empty space in the rooms and especially the foyers make me feel unsafe and worried.

Okay, I can relate to this. I feel the guilt when they buy expensive stuff. And big rooms make me feel vulnerable. I like smaller rooms.

I'm Trypophobic, which is a fear of holes, or a pattern or cluster of holes. Certain foods with seeds creep me out, like sliced tomatoes or honeycombs. When I was younger, I had a pimple on my back that got infected, so I had MRSA. The doctors had to cut it open, and scoop out the infection, so I had this abscess that was about 2 inches wide and 3 inches deep. I had to go to the doctor every other day for about 5 weeks so they could change the dressing and pack in gauze. It was very painful and unsettling. If I have a pimple or cut I'm very uneasy and worried about an infection. I've gotten better over the years, but certain patterns still creep me out.

Small spaces, especially caves. And elevators, plus being restrained in any way, or people touching me in general. Also loud noises… there’s a lot. None of them really have a reason, they just scare me.

My overprotective mother made me afraid of lots of things so I’ll try to keep the list short. It’ll likely be long tho

Burglars, intruders, murderers, kidnap pets, strangers, wasps, bees, insects, moths, spiders, heights, elevators, snakes, escalators, fires, water (specifically drowning), cancer, not being in control, getting angry, dying, me crying, yelling, arguing, fake friends, being bullied, people, being social, people hating me, making a mistake, failure, showing “negative” emotions around my mom, electrocution, being murdered or kidnapped in my sleep, dying in my sleep, heart attacks, strokes, falling…
Yeah you get the point…

Yes, losing my love early in life, living without love throughout my life, and finally getting that love back again now that I am old has put a great fear in me. For almost all of my adult life I never cared if I got in a fatal accident, developed a terminal illness, even failed to wake up in the morning. I never worried I would die - it held no fear over me. All of a sudden with such happiness in my life I AM SCARED TO DEATH that I will lose it!

Deep water. I don't care of I can see the bottom or not. Any body of water I cannot touch the bottom of and not buoyant enough.
Empty swimming pool. Whirlpools, especially big ones.

My rational fear is deep water.

Tell me more about Flordia please. I know about the sharks though. My mom made us watch a lot of shark week before moving to here. (Texas to Flordia) We literally just moved here Wednesday. Idk much about this state, but my dad grew up in Stewart. (Don't know if I spelt it right.) And I know that there is DisneyWorld. (We went there about a year and ½ ago.) But other then Pensacola that is it.

I am absolutely TERRIFIED of ANY type of arachnid. I’ve got arachnophobia and it’s not just SEEING the spider that’s terrifying, it’s also the knowledge that there has been a spider in the past.

I’m deathly terrified of centipedes and moths
THEY’RE LIKE LITTLE JERKS THAT JUST WANNA RUN INTO MY HAIR OR FACE!!

And my mom and I joke saying that I’m scared of centipedes bc when she was pregnant with me, she woke up screaming bc a centipede crawled across her face.

Just a few weeks ago I was emptying the dishwasher and I grabbed a spatula without looking and and thought I touched squishy piece of mac n cheese so, disgusted I threw it down, and as it was hitting the bottom tray of the dishwasher, a centipede fell off. I screamed, called my mom over, and she tried squishing it. It scurried into the steam vent for the dishwasher and she grabbed some vinegar, drowned it and said “it needed to be cleaned anyway. Turn the dishwasher settings on all the hot settings and if he’s still alive, we’ll fry that sucker!” My moms the second bravest person I know…

Besides my dad who catches moths WITH HIS BARE HANDS and throws them outside for me :]
