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.

Re: What scares you?

Aw, that's very sweet, thank you.

 

We were incredibly fortunate to not be harmed. Even more amazingly, but significantly less importantly, we got almost everything back. But I couldn't have cared any less about any of our things at that moment, knowing what could've happened. 🙂 

Re: What scares you?

I watch a lot of crime/mystery/murder shows and I'm terrified of people breaking in. There's been 2 or 3 incidents in my city where a group of people act as flower delivery men and break into peoples homes. 

Re: What scares you?

I'm not sure if it's considered a "fear", but birds (more specifically, pigeons) give me anxiety.  Not necessarily in the "The Birds" kind of way.  I'll walk across the street, or go around it.  People who scare of flock of birds & force them to fly toward me... death stare.  Well, after I flail around like a mad woman.  

 

Funny/not funny story of how it started:  My mom used to take me to feed the ducks, the duck wanted more, I had no more bread for it.  The mean sucker pecked at my hand and chased me.  Imagine one of those "funniest home video" moments.  Sigh.

@miabt   Omg that would be traumatic!   birds are scary- especially geese!  

Re: What scares you?

I have a fear of birds pooping on me

Re: What scares you?

I was at a rowing camp and a bird dropped one right on the handle of my oar where my hand had been a second prior. It was excellent aim on its part.

Re: What scares you?

Hahaa!  That actually happened to me!  I was a freshmen in HS & had long, luxurious hair & a seagull got me real good.  Another reason I dislike birds so much!! 

Re: What scares you?

I remember the Filipino boys running around at our school trying to get defecated on by the flocks of seagulls after lunch.

They claimed it was for "good luck."

  • TAXES
  • STUDENT LOANS

Re: What scares you?

Student loans are way scarier than taxes.

Re: What scares you?

Oh yeah!

Re: What scares you?

Taxes should only scare you if you neglect to pay them. 🙂

Re: What scares you?

Bugs.  Anything with more than 4 legs is not ok with me.  

Money.  I spend too much and will soon have a mortgage.  gah!

Clowns.  Just...no.

yes, yes, yes and yes. 

 

Re: What scares you?

Moths. With their crazy erratic flying and creepily fuzzy bodies...... blech. I'm terrified one would fly into my head and get tangled in my hair. If I'm out at night and there are moths, I'm either hiding in a hood/hat or have my hair in a tight bun. 

Re: What scares you?

Moths ate the lining and part of the outer of my favorite wool tam-o-shanter.

 

I'm sure this won't help you with your terror, but my mom had a ladybug crawl in her ear one night. Holy crap no one slept until she got it out and calmed down.

Re: What scares you?

OMG. That totally reminded me of this old episode of Night Gallery. The one with the earwigs. Did you ever see that episode? (I just looked online and I think it may be on YouTube.)

Re: What scares you?

I remember that one!!!!!! Everyone talked about that one for days!

Re: What scares you?

O.o omg I will look it up tomorrow. I feel like it would be a bad idea it is only six hours until my bedtime. LOL I know I will dream of earwigs...
