    I'm petrified of needles. What are you afraid of?

    I have an absolutely terrible fear of sharks. Ever since I was super young.

    Driving. Which just sucks. I'd love to be able to drive, but I just can't . I hey extent it nervous,& lose focus-which isn't good when driving. I feel like I'll have a panic attack when I'm on the real road.

    I'm more worried about accidentally injuring others, their, property, or the car.I'm really not worried about myself.

    In the irrational phobia kind of way? Birds. Holy heck birds. Mostly flying ones, although chickens creep me out. Duck, weirdly, do not.

    Parrots? No way.

    I don't like heights, in particular ledges. Being high up gives me the creeps, but being high and near a ledge pretty much makes me shut down. Most "fun" amusement park rides make me want to curl up into a ball and die because they involve heights and falling very quickly. I almost threw up and passed out waiting in line for the one and only "real" roller coaster I've ridden.

    Beatles, scary clowns, mannequins, and puppet dolls give me the heebeejeebees.

    Spiders. Death.

    I'm not big on natural bodies of water anymore. I'm not sure it's an irrational fear though, I'm just super of aware of what can be lurking (from microscopic bacteria to predators :p).

    Spiders. God oh god spiders. And honestly all other bugs (particularly moths and those giant mosquito things that aren't mosquitoes). Butterflies and dragonflies even creep me out.

    Heights, don't like those either.

    Open doors leading to dark rooms. YES IT'S SPECIFIC. But if I walk through the hallway and there's an open door to a dark room, I have to close it. Same goes for closet doors at night.

    Long toenails. Eww, right? I imagine them flipping over every time I see long nails, so that's like, 10x the eww factor right there.

    Losing my family and the people I love (could be loss through death or estrangement, etc.). Animals, too. Especially Trent. Godfreakingdamnit he better live forever.

    Bugs. Needs to be repeated because oh god get it away from me :c

    Eyeballs... like if they get injured and are popped out or bulging... ick. :yikes: That's one of the reasons I could never have a really bug eyed dog like a badly bred pug or chi.

    Also, fire, but only when raging out of control.

    I can deal with both of those things if needed, but I've been afraid of raging fires and injured eyes since I was about 5 or so. I blame the eye thing on a National Geographic magazine article! lol

    This actually sounds like the lineup for my wife's dream "B" movie :rofl1:

    Flying spiders vs Sharknado at night.

    Bugs. Butterflies are ok but all bugs need to get away now

    Death, I'm really scared of dying. idk

    I also have some weird social anxiety where I'm really scared people won't like me. I overthink what I'm gonna say so that people won't judge me / disagree with me. I find it hard to correct or disagree outwardly with people. I'm just really anxious about the fact that people won't like me.

    Yes. I need to sleep with blankets at least up to my knees, and sheets don't count.

    Yes. Blankets are oh-so magical & keep them away.

    I always need to sleep with a blanket when I sleep, or I'm not comfortable.
