Fears - October 22nd 2014, 06:55 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

What fears do you have?

I don't know if this belongs in this section but yah. Could be potentially triggering.

I have some random fears

- Men touching me

I am also afraid of replacing light bulbs in light fixtures. Like I'm fine unscrewing them, screwing the new one in, but i have to be OUT of the room before I even attempt to turn them on. I fear that they will like... explode and injure me or something. I have NO idea where this fear came from.

Also have been afraid of zombies but I think im getting over that because lately Ive watched Dawn Of The Dead (2004), World War Z, Diary of the Dead and I feel fine


R.I.P Mommy </3 July 1,1963-April 8, 2012. I miss you

It's a momentary relief from the existential terror of existence!

I agree with most of yours!

I am scared of spiders, heights, dying and men touching me.

But alsoÖ.

-Roller coasters
-Thunder and Lightning
-Panic attacks and fainting
-Being attacked

And then entirely irrational fears such as:

-Changing lightbulbs (I would feel the same as you, but for some reason the idea of touching a light bulb just revolts me).

-Smoke alarms (if I had to turn one off)

-Hoovers/vacuum cleaners (No idea there, but I donít like the noise and am convinced it will explode on me)

-Shower heads/shower (I havenít figured if itís the small space I donít like or the actual shower head I have a problem withÖ.no idea about where that came from either).

-Lifts!!!! I hate using a lift, it makes me feel so anxious and I hate it when it suddenly starts moving and suddenly stops moving. My legs feel like jelly all the way through, if Iím forced to use one.

-Noisy hairdryers and hand dryers- I feel like they are just going to explode on me too.

Thereís probably more, but thatís all I can think of for now

-Hoovers/vacuum cleaners

I used to be terrified of them when I was little because we had an old one and it was really loud. I used to hide in a corner.

-I'm afraid of vomit - of myself vomiting or of other people vomiting and I go to great lengths to make sure that I don't get sick.

-Germs. I wash my hands constantly.

-Crowds. I don't enjoy being surrounded by a lot of people. Oh, and public speaking.

-Small places, like the shower.

-I'm afraid of men.

-Having no escape scares me. Like, I have to know where my exits and everything are.

-I'm afraid of being alone when I'm older or of not being able to function in the real world.

-I'm afraid of dying as well.
