What scares you?

With Halloween almost here, what scares you? Or do you have a phobia? Have you done or attempted anything to overcome your fear?

 

I have bathmophobia (fear of stairs). I have no problem at the bottom but looking down from the top is another story. Also related is escalaphobia (fear of escalators) which is even worse because it's moving stairs. I don't know where this fear came from but I read that if you have some weird fear (my mom is terrified of being buried alive), it's because that's how you died in a past life.

@Ispend2much6 the elevator is my best friend 🤣

Re: What scares you?

You guys this thread scares me! 😂 I am scratching like a crazy person right now thinking about all the critters and insects lurking! I despise those insanely fast centipedes with furry gazillions of legs , any spider ( except maybe @lmaster ‘s variety!), crickets, silverfish , lizards, bees you name it! @Ispend2much6  I would have searched my house all day and night for that thing! Give me a sweet 🐞 ladybug any day! 

Re: What scares you?

@Sunnysmom yeah .. You think those ladybugs are sweet until they bite you 😆

Re: What scares you?

I’ve never had that happen @lmaster … yet!

Re: What scares you?

Ohhhh @Sunnysmom live in the middle of corn fields,,, when they start to cut the corn,, it is an evasion of lady bugs,, I thought,, oh my daughter would love to play with these,,, she wasn't touching them 5 minutes and one bit her

Re: What scares you?

You know what’s funny @lmaster ?! I did grow up around them in Illinois too! 🤗😄 I was never good at that kind of stuff tho 🙄🥰 shocking I’m sure! 😂

Re: What scares you?

Hundreds, thousands of those suckers fly all over @Sunnysmom uughhhh

Re: What scares you?

So sad and gross @lmaster , I used to think this was the best of any bugs lol! Time to rethink or maybe I blocked it out from my childhood days?! 

Re: What scares you?

@Sunnysmom yep! I just stick to the sketti spiders 🤣

Re: What scares you?

Me too @lmaster !! Baby steps! 

Re: What scares you?

@Sunnysmom  Ladybugs buzz and fly near you though; they're bad too!  Nature is meant to be outside, that's for sure.

Re: What scares you?

Oh no really @Ispend2much6?! I’ve not had that happen! So now I have to watch out for them too?! 😭 Right now I’m trying to dodge the silly mosquitos that we seldom have here. Super dooper. 

Re: What scares you?

@Sunnysmom  I just mean that they're unpleasant if you don't like buzzing bugs.  But those imposter ladybugs multiply more quickly than regular ones, and stink if you squash them.  I forget their real name.

Re: What scares you?

@Crazy4Sephora1   Ceiling spiders.  Oh and cougars.   We have a lot of cougar activity on our mountain and it’s my worst fear to be attacked by one.  

Re: What scares you?

Thunderstorms. I get absolutely terrified. I am over 40 and will hide in the closet with my two terrified cats.

Oh and centipedes.... I can handle all sorts of poisonous creatures but centipedes! I turn into a hysterical screaming maniac throwing everything around me at the wall. Just to watch the evil thing go into a heat vent or down the drain. 

Luckily the current place I live doesn’t have them... at least that I’ve seen.

Re: What scares you?

@Weetart   I love thunderstorms but centipedes are just evil.   Like why does nature think anything needs that many legs?  

Re: What scares you?

@Weetart. I saw my first indoor centipede about a month ago. I was napping in our recliner and I woke up to see one on the arm of the chair! I screamed and flicked it off and then we lost it. Two days later we wete in the kitchen and that thing scurried across the floor! They are really fast and repulsive.

Re: What scares you?

@Ispend2much6   I don’t think I’d be okay knowing it was in there.   I’m anxious just reading you lost it.  

Re: What scares you?

@heartsmyface  Oh, believe me, I didn't sit in that chair for a couple of days, and didn't nap in it either.  Some things either find their own way out, or die and are never found again. I guess that doesn't say much for my cleaning habits!

 

Cougars?  Now there's some nightmare feed.  One day one of my family members came home and saw what looked like a large cat with a long tail resting under our car- as it walked away we realized it was a bobcat!  Seemed friendly. lol

 

Should we talk about poisonous snakes now? 

Re: What scares you?

@Ispend2much6 Ahhhh we have bobcat visits!   I’m not afraid of them cause they don’t eat humans and their tails are just precious!!!    These were from February 23rd a few blocks up the street 🙂   Haha, no thanks to the poisonous snakes!

Re: What scares you?

@heartsmyface  Pretty!  Here's our little friend.  It's kind of blurry, but the long ears and tail were different from other cats, and the body was more square.  I think there are different types of bobcats; ours are the Eastern variety.

Then again, maybe it's just a well-fed cat. 🙂
