The Thing You Fear Most...

Tue Jun 12, 2001 9:37 am

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

Ending up in a miserable job I hate doing, for the rest of my life.


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.

RE: To Climbout

Wed Jun 13, 2001 8:01 am

Hi Climbout. Well, if you ever find yourself in that position [under a freeway overpass during an Earthquake], you should just get out of your car and run!

Then, once the shaking stops, get back in it and drive away [if there's anything left of it!].

I remember talking with you months ago about that woman who jumped out of a Twin Otter emergency door at 2000 ft, to commit suicide, down in your neck of the woods...Southern California. So I can understand why you would have that particular fear.

Reguarding my fear of lightning, and how it could rob me of a chance to say goodbye, the reason is, I'm a lucky guy when it comes to certain things. Such as having the ability to look up at the blue sky and clouds and just feel real Happy. When it's overcast and dreary outside, I always know that the sky is blue with white puffy clouds up above it.

I know that I will DIE one day [ just like my grandmother did 2 weeks ago ], and when I do, YES, I would like to go quick, like most people, just NOT INSTANTLY!!

I would like to be able to say "goodbye" to the sky and clouds, and then say "helo" to GOD, and let him know that I'll be with him in just a few moments.

Take Care,
Chris

Mr. Spaceman,

What a very nice reply! Well, God and your grandma will be waiting for you when you get there some day. And you will be recieved with open arms.

Regarding the freeway overpass, yes I would get out of my car and run and pray that I have time, because it wouldn't take a quake no time to bring down a freeway. I've seen first hand what a quake can do to a freeway and believe me, it's not pretty.

I just thought of one more fear, and that is the fear of being stuck in an elevator or being in an elevator that all of sudden starts to plunge.

CXA330-342,

Are you serious? You have PLENTY of time for that and you are already thinking about not being able to have kids. You have a long time before you are 28 and will have kids when the time is right. First things first, like high school, college, a job, a wedding, and THEN come the kids. But right now, get past the 8th grade. Please don't worry about having kids at such a young age and just enjoy your life at the sweet and tender age you are at now.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

For me they would be:

1.Drowning--thinking about it freaks me out...
2.Dying alone.
3.My Mother dying, casue I love her very much.
4.Falling from a high or unenclosed place.
5.Thunderstorms--Im not sure why...
6.Never finding my mate.
7.Being a disappointment to other people.

Some of these may sound childish but they are very real to me...

It is really unreasonable, but I have a real fear of dying from explosive decompression, like being ejected from a spacecraft. Watch the film Event Horizon.
As for phobias,

Wide, open spaces on land also freak me out. Being dropped in a field of corn or tall grass with absolutely NOTHING on the horizon but endless corn or tall grass. I know I would go insane. For some reason however, I am okay about being in the middle of the ocean.

I am also afraid of spiders. I was frightened by a HUGE one as a young child and I never quite recovered.

An Observation...

Thu Jun 14, 2001 5:27 am

It seems to me that lots of you are listing off *scary situations* as opposed to actual fears.

I won't name names, but things like being stuck on an overpass, trapped in a falling elevator, etc. Sure, these are indeed fearful/scary situations, but would you actually say you *fear* these things?


(BTW, I absolutely love thunderstorms. Just amazing to watch.)

Hi there. I just wanted to add...that for those of you who are afraid of drowning [and who wouldn't be], what actually KILLS you is not the intake of water, thus causing your breathing to stop...it's the massive "HEART ATTACK!" that you end up having, as a result of a lack of oxygen in your blood, making your heart pump faster, and faster untill it EXPLODES!

Hopefully this will happen very quickly, so that you're not too far down in the DEEP before your dead!

Take Care,
Chris

i am not afraid of dying, whether its alone or with someone, i am afraid of how i will die because any type of death besides in your sleep seems horrible to me. drowning scares me because my brother has a tendancy to hold my head under the water when we go swimming together. one time it was especially long. anyways i am also i am afraid of heights because ,as it was mentioned earlier, if i am on top of a building it will fall.

Climbout,

I don't know what you mean, or how you interpretated what I said. All I meant was that I would be really scared if one day a doctor told me that I was sterile. I have no intention of having any kids in the near future (as I shall remain chaste until marriage) nor do I plan to get married. Thanks for you advice, though.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Trans, I love storms too. I sit on my porch and wait for them to hit me. Just LOVE when news says we're in for big storms. I don't know if you watch the news a lot, but about 2 weeks ago two tornadoes hit a shopping center in Indiana and flipped over a bunch of cars and did widespread damage including ripping the roof off a retirement home. Well I live in that city and after it did all that damage, it headed toward my neighborhood. I was sitting on the porch with a beer enjoying it when I noticed roofing materials and yellow insulation flying through the air. I immediately joined my family in the basement. Was one of the few times I was scared during a storm.
