Fears And Phobia's
I am scared of heights, I get a sick feeling and dizzy. Not sure if falling off the roof a few years back made it worse, but the ladder broke my fall at least, haha. I am also terrified now of drugs, I know the damage they caused me and knowing my addictive personality i could fall prey to almost any kind I'm sure. The fear of going back keeps me safe though. I am terrified of flying which I am going to have to do and hoping they have something non-narcotic to knock me out, lol. What are your fears or phobia's

i have a HORRIBLE fear of bad thunderstorms and tornadoes.  was never afraid of bad weather until my husband drove us straight into an oncoming tornado and we had to turn the car around and try to outrun it.  we ended up having to jump out of the car and bang on some strangers house to let us in to get out of the way of the tornado.  i had three kids with me at the time and i have never been so frightened as i was that day.  since then...i go into major panic attacks when really bad weather is around.

Fear of driving off the road. Fear of losing love. Fear of failure.

Some of you folks could benefit from immersion therapy and facing your fears  - skydiving works for fear of heights...... survival workouts will take away a fear of small bugs when you cook and eat them for awhile....and bats taste like chicken (use tobasco) with some garlic. Small rodents (rats, mice, hamsters..) taste like small birds amd are very good.  Thunderstorms come around too often to be scared ot them - you cant stay in the house forever! Learn to deal with tornado's - there are proper ways...you dont try and outrun - you evade by taking a course perpendicular to tornado  and open distance. Shelter in a house without a good basement isnt shelter.....as good shelter can be found in culvert pipes and even roadside ditches.... There are many ways to face and deal with the fears....

i too have the common fear of heights but i still love to go on rollercoasters! I dont know if its cuz Im strapped/buckled in that makes a difference or what, but i love coasters! However stand me up on a chair 5" off the ground and Im woozier than a mouse that fell in a wine barrell, LOL.  I cant walk on bleachers at arena type settings out of fear of falling down them and get so woozy i cant stand it. I cant go up ladders and never ever could get on a roof.

I  also dont like to drive in the thick fog. I hate not being able to see in front of me like that and it gives me a panick attack, I feel like Im suffocating in fog.

bugs dont bother me too much-- i have the motto- you leave me alone and I wont squash the helll out of you.  I will freak out though if a big spider crawls on me. Daddy Long Legs are the only type of spider Im not bothered by.

SNakes-- hate them!

I USED to be horribly afraid of bugs, but becoming a mother cured me of it.  When you're a mom and your kids are freaking because of a bug, you kinda have to take over and be the voice of reason and say it isn't gonna hurt you, etc....you have to SHOW them YOU'RE not afraid too, so then you pick it up.  One of my daughters though, is still scared to death of them.  The other will cry if you hurt one, so either she or I, will carry them outside.

I am scared to death of failure and something happening to my kids or husband.

D-sarah - how ironic is that, I lost my mom at 11, and my worst fear is that I will see her and also my husband, and neither of them will know its me, or vice versa. I have heard for so long that I would see my mom again someday, and have feared I won't even make it there because of my past and that she won't be there because of hers.

As far as on this earth, I am deathly afraid of bugs, Big clusters of bugs. Roaches and stuff like that...UGH...I have chills now.

ladders, gas stations that have tankers unloading in them, fear of losing another child, fear of trying to hook up electronic stuff that has a lot of connections and a manual as thick as a dictionary

I am afraid of going off the road into water.  That's scares the heck out of me!  

I'm also afraid of heights.  Once we went up to Snowbird (ski resort) and took the Tram up the top of the mountain.  Many people go and look over the side and I can't do that.  I even get dizzy watching someone else do it!  Even walking up to the top row in an arena will do that to me!  UGH!!!!  We watched Cliffhanger with Sylvester Stallone and there's a part where he's hanging and I thought I was going to get sick!  OIY!!!!

i have an intense fear of shots, needles, and blood that is mine, but i am absolutley fine with watching surgery- hahaha. but for your fobias i would justtake step by step, like first looking at pictures of heights, watching movies with heights, then actually looking down a height, and this will slowly but surely slow down the immense fear your brain is creating..
hope this helps out!

spiders and spider webs! it was worse when i was pregnant. I remember being so terrified about needing to walk outside that I was actually in tears and standing on a chair. I still HATE walking through a spider web and the icky sound it makes when I do. Bees are another one, if they buzz me I'm likely to scream. Ohhhh and we have those huge 2" long Japanese hornets here too! I make for great entertainment when those come around!!!
