What's Your Greatest Fear?

Postby The Mexican Wifebeater on Mon Jul 09, 2001 5:38 am

I wish my D= face was one of the choices. Life is scary. I'm mostly afraid of weird little stupid things, like fish. Everybody makes lots of fun of me for that one, but I can honestly say that they may terrify me more than anything else in the world. I went camping twice in my life, both on a whitewater rafting trip, but one year between campouts. This most recent time, the folks were talking and everyone had to share their scariest moment. Mine was, without a doubt, when i jumped into the river and let the water carry me downstream. I felt so scared, I remember not even being able to breathe. All my breaths were short and wow....I can still remember it all too vividly. I think it's like usagi said. I'm more afraid of the unknown than being helpless, though they both tie together. I'm afraid of aliens....what would i do if one came at me? A dude comes at me, i know he's weak between the legs, so i kick there. What happens with an alien? Do i even know if he has a weak spot? it's scary. I'm afraid of being shot while passenging in the back seat of a car....I guess that's also helplessness. I used to be afraid of people touching my neck, but I've gotten over that one. Back in my early days, I was always afraid that some terrorists would put a giant steel bubble around me, and fasten it to my bed. Sometimes I slept with a screwdriver. I was also afraid of a nuclear bomb or an asteroid hitting my house whilst i slept. I'm glad I got over those. Sleeping was impossible. Fish are also a long standing fear. I remember needing to haul ass through pet stores because i couldn't stand them looking at me. God, i hate fish.<P>
Afraid of not making an impact or a difference.

OK, so I'm afraid of things which seem out of perportion (sp?). Like tall ceilings, ever since I was a kid they have freaked me out. IT's like the opposite of being scared of heights, tall ceilings make it hard for me to breathe, and I can't look up cause I get dizzy. I'm not talking 10 foot ceiling but like 80, or the domes at observatories where they project the light sho, or even IMAX movie screens when the movie isn't playing. When I was a kid I couldn't walk around downtown Chicago normally,I had to walk looking down at my feet cause the tall buildings scared me, I'm over that now though but the ceilings still get me. Or things which just seem too big, like when I stood next to the steam dealy on a cruise ship on the top deck, this long empty deck and then this HUGE gigantic thing poping out of it, I hate that type of stuff. I have no idea where this comes from, but I bet it has something to do with helplessness. I have nightmares about being sucked up to the tall ceiling of a room and being held there by some strange force, it's more the 'force' that scares me than the height. Weird shit I tell you. Oh I also hate being in rooms or anything which is all one colour, afraid of being in the deep ocean and surrounded by fathoms and fathoms of never ending blue.....gives me the fucking chills. Ugh, OK done sharing. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif">

I'm sure Mofo remembers this... <P>One of the scariest things, to me, is my ability to hurt myself. I'll be driving my car and be painfully aware that I could swerve into the path of a semi, reducing my car and myself to a twisted mess of blood and aluminum. I could stand on the railroad tracks and watch the train come up and smash me into bits. Hold onto a balcony or a rail at the top of the stairs and think "I can throw myself over and I'll be dead."<P>It doesn't matter that I never would. I have the ability to, and that's scary enough. So maybe this is a fear of losing my self-control. <P>I developed a phobia of tornadoes after having lots of nightmares (which ended right before I died) about them. Backwards, huh?<P>Oh yeah, I'm well aware that if a wasp or a spider so much as touches me, I'll die instantly. I don't get why people laugh when I tell them this.

Death. Well, not quite death itself... what's after death...<P>Nothingness. Yup. Nothingness.<P>You know those dreamless nights... you lay down in bed, blink, and the only thing that lets you know that you slept is the fact that it's light outside, you feel rested, etc... Imagine one of those nights, but you just don't wake up.<P>um... I'm going to shut up now...<P>~Jeebes, the slightly insane

I've had those before, but I never realize it when I'm having those nights, so if you dont know it's happening then there's nothing to be scared of. Or is that what you're getting at? I'm confused

This will explain most of my actions. I think I have some kind of teenager syndrome at the age of 20. One of my fears (don't know if it's my greatest) is not being accepted. It's from rejection througout the years that I became paranoid that people didn't care whether I was around or not. This sounds like a petty li'l problem but I don't know how to change it. I get all psyched to go to a social gathering with friends(whether it be a party, wedding, or just bumming around), but then I freak and disappear for a while until I feel it's safe to come out again. I don't mean to do it, I just get afraid that I'm not really wanted. It's the most stupidest thing and I've gotten so many people upset with me because of it.<P>So yeah...that's my fear. Oh, I'm also afraid of mustard and I'm afraid of the fuzzy screen that comes on when a movie is finished. When I was little my brother wanted to see if there was hidden stuff on a movie we rented so we watched and watched and out of nowhere Bugs Bunny yelled at us and told us to stop watching.<P>
Thanks for listening. =)

You see, I can deal with anything but that. heh. heck, an eternity of just sitting watching reruns of teletubbies would be better... then at least I'd know what's going on, at least I'd be able to think, to know that I'm bored, and annoyed, and such... ah, forget it... I'm not making any sense right now.<P>either I haven't had enough caffiene, or I've had too much... I can't do anything about the latter, so just in case it's the former...<P>*pops open his 4th can of Jolt tonight*<P>~Jeebes... Just Jeebes. (oh god... I'm in a calvin klein commercial)

I don't think I'm afraid of much. It comes from sitting in the car too long with an overactive imagination. You imagine so many various bad things happening that you're not scared of them any more. If they were bad, they would have happened by now. (says the psycho-depressed schizo)
But I don't like getting hit in the face. I flinch waaay too much. Even tetherballs make me back up.
I'd say I fear the human race, but I really just pity them. Stupid buggers.

Dare I say spiders?<P>Heh, seriously. I have some wicked fucked up re-occuring dreams about spiders. Mostly their not detailed dreams at all. It's more like I fall into that between space of sleep and awake and I sit up in my bed and I see the biggest fucking spiders crawling on my bed/walls and such, and the last one, just before I came out to KC it was dangling from it's web above my face. I freak out at these bastard dreams something awful. One time, that I can clearly remember, i'd woken and saw the thing crawling on my bed and had to sleep in the living room of my home. I couldn't get myself to go back into my room. Now I live in an area with a large brown recluse population, go figure.<P>An odd side note, i mentioned this once in a chat room, and someone told me that having dreams of this nature had something to do with my mother.<P>=

yeah, exactly. I've been stung by bees and bitten by spiders, yet they don't scare me. And oddly, I've never been stung by a wasp, they're just ugly fuckers. <P>------------------

I'm not real big on daddy longlegs. Ugh. I was in girl scouts once and we had this big camp out thing and the bunkhouse where my troop slept, there was like, an infestation of the little fucks. So I had to sleep all night with creepy things crawling all over me. I still freak every time I see one. Nasty.

I've never been stung by a wasp. I've never been in danger of being stung by a wasp. But those fuckers scare me to death. They just look nasty, they look evil, they look dangerous. They look like the type of bug that takes no shit. I totally dig on your fear of wasps, man. Dirt-dobbers, too.

Hmm. I hate the feeling of helplessness. Not being in control of outside forces; people, animals/pets, objects, money, etc. Like Mofo said... Scared to lose my baby. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> I know he loves me, but I can't control that, because he's his own entity. Everything else that's not me... I can't control. BUT. My all-time biggest fear is when I can't control myself. When I almost bled to death... My head kept saying, "Keep it together, you're gonna be fine, don't pass out" but my body was doing something entirely different. Just bleeding everywhere and it wouldn't stop and there was absolutely nothing I could do. I dunno. I don't think I need to go on any further with that...

think i have 2 big fears, one would be becoming terribly ill wether if its physically or mentally, i mean its pretty disturbing the vision of myself caught in a place but having no participation whatsoever on the events around me.<P>my second biggest fear is a recent one, i mean, i usually go to bed around 4 or 5 am, so i am walking around my house late at night, and well sometimes i need water or i need to pee, and my biggest fear would be entering the restroom and finding my dad totally naked taking a shit in the dark and i imagine myself just standing there while he babbles something incoherent and my mind just cant react, cant pass the motion messages to my limbs so im stuck there in the 4 square feet restroom with my eyes wide open and no possibility of shutting them just beholding my naked dad defecating and me on that nasty parental colon related scary realm.<P>it
