What do you fear the most, or most scared of. Me, mine is really silly, Thunder and Lightning. Everytime it happens I get a panic attack and get all nervous and scared. I have always been like this, I have always wondered why. Does anyone else have anything that they are most afraid of? Waiting to see what you put.

I'm with you KLMBlue....I get very nervous when severe T-Storms are in my area. I think it is because of when lightning came EXTREMELY close to me when I was really young. Or it may be because I read up of weather too much. Heights aren't my thing either.

Ants.
When I was nine, I was shooting some hoops in my driveway, and the ball went into some bushes. I reached in to get it, and when I brought my hand out, it was covered with fireants. I still have bite scars on my arm/wrist/hand from the incident.

1) House fire when I'm not home. My dog can't get out by herself.
2) People. Never been hurt as much as people can.
3) Heights. If I cross a bridge, it will fall. If i'm on top a a large building it will fall.

Not much else though Embarrassment

My #1 fear is my kids or wife dying or getting terminally ill. Then other family members.

Next would be...
Dying by one of the top 3 horrible deaths:
Burning to death
Drowning/Suffocating
Getting eaten by something

Getting a horrible terminal disease that will eventually kill me such as cancer, heart disease, or liver disease. BTW, there's no reason to believe I will (so far).

Killing someone on accident:
Any way

But if you meant more along the lines of phobias...I can't think of anything. No, I'm not trying to sound all brave and stuff...I seriously can't think of anything that I'm actually scared of.

Well, KLMBlue, you are not alone. If it's lightning outside, you won't see me taking a nice easy stroll through the neighborhood, as if nothing's going on!

I myself too, have had a few close calls.....In 1991, I was out on the "main pier" in Daytona Beach, checking out what the fishermen were catching, when suddenly a lightning strike hit the pier between me and the beach. As I was running for cover inside a little restaurant on the pier [along with 30 other people], another strike hit the beach about 50 feet to my right! I actually saw smoke rising up from the sand.

A lightning strike can KILL you "Instantly!" You don't even get a chance to say goodbye to anyone or anything, like Life itself.

I would rather DIE because my parachute failed to open, or because for some strange reason, my small aircraft's tail decided to come off!

At least then I would know that I was going down for good, and would have a few moments to say GOODBYE!

Mr. Spaceman,

What you wrote is very interesting. I would prefer dying instantly, rather than knowing I'm going down. Can you imagine the sheer terror in going down in a plane, or with a parachute that won't open!! If these events were to occur (although I am not wishing any harm on you, because God will take care of you), you may very well be alone and still wouldn't be able to say good-bye.

Again, I would rather my death be quick and fast, or perhaps die in my sleep.

Getting back to the topic:
One of my fears is getting caught under a freeway over pass during a traffic jam, when an earthquake hits.
