    What do you fear most?

    Physically I fear drowning. I am scared to death to drive over bridges for fear my car will fall off the edge and plunge into the water below. I have always feared drowning but it was really brought home to me when a very close friend experienced this first hand after his son nearly drown. He is the reason I am here.

    Mentally/Emotionally I fear hurting people I care about. I am dealing with something now and have been for quite some time but still not able to do what I want to do for fear of the pain I will cause. I can't go into more detail yet. Maybe someday. A couple of you already know and that is enough for now.

    What are your fears?

    I think waking up in a Kafka-esque world is my biggest fear. And worse: I realize we are getting there.

    Re: What do you fear most?

    anything hospital related instills a fear in me which has caused me to run infront of a bus and on another occasion jump out a 3rd floor window.
    boats, anything that floats on water due to the rape happening on one.

    smaller fears are esculaters - they just freak me out and i cant get a balance on them!

    Can't say I am too fond of hospitals either. But at least chances of me giving birth to offspring (and thus be hospitalised) are kind of 0%. How would you cope with that?

    With all the discoveries happening now, I'd say that men having babies and giving women a rest WILL happen!

    How would you cope with that?
    Having a baby is SO different than a normal hospital stay! A baby changes everything...

    im not really sure, its something i like to avoid thinking about tbh, ive considered a home birth many many times. i know there has been many complications during birth for needle phobic patients due to panicking, high blood pressure, passing out, going in to a coma, and generally getting incredibly stressed out and panic.

    due to the level of fear and the problems the phobia can cause i dont think id be willing to put the baby in that sort of danger. the less stressed and scared i am the better for the baby and for giving birth. so id have to find the easiest and less frightening option available

    Re: What do you fear most?

    I can't really say....

    I jump off 60-65' cliffs into big bodies of water so drowning and heights are not an issue for me.

    Car accidents don't scare me as I have been in more than I care to recall.

    I guess if I really had to say anything, clowns. They are just too damn creepy and no one should be that happy all the time!

    Usually if I am scared of something I will just force myself to do it and get it over with, then it's not an issue anymore.

    No, I won't do a clown.

    Emotionally my biggest fear is not finding anyone to love me.

    I have an intense fear of being imprisoned and sharing a cell with a 350 lb Black man named Tyrone that wants me to be his "Baby-Cakes."

    Just don't do anything bad enough to be locked up with a huge guy named Tyrone and you have nothing to worry about.

    I thought you were British? It is a British stage comedy from the early 80's.

    I didn't know what it was either but then I am not British so will plead ignorance in that respect.

    You are not the only one. My depth perception is rather poor, and I have a knack of getting accidentally hit with baseball bats (on a practice field) and other stuff like that.

    Same but I do have a fear of falling from a great height and something solid stopping me. I think because I used to go climb allot its given me an acute fear of falling to my death from a great height. I have a very healthy respect for it anyway.

    I think I'm a little unnaturally fearful of hitting animals while I'm driving.

    I am not so sure that is unnatural. I fear that too. I live in a semi rural area so seeing deer on the side of the road isn't unusual. There have even been bears on occasion, lots of squirrels. We have alligators too but they don't usually cross the road. I fear them when I am in the backwoods near a creek!!!
