Other that, i can't really think of one. Makes life so complicated, having to constantly look over my shoulder etc.

  You know, something else I fear (probably since I'm watching the virgin suicides that I remember it but I have thought of this before)



I am terrified of being together with a girl and everything going fine and then waking up one day and getting a phonecall that she died in a car accident or something.

I can handle relationships ending but I don't think I could handle such a thing, being in love and then bang, without any closure or warning your whole world gets blown apart.

And what about the rest of your life...

How could you not feel guilty about starting another relationship.

You'd probably want one again but how could you if you have never been able to fall out of love sort of speak.



Fuck just thinking about it gets me depressed.

Other than that, I am afraid of becoming a lump...living a monotone life, where I no longer can feel anything other than happy and sad...but happy and sad where there is no beauty associated with these feelings. Basically, I am afraid of having all the optimism sucked out of me and becoming a "robot".

Also, waking up and being the only one left in my family.

  Hmm I wonder why so many people are afraid of drowing/suffocation.


Those are just about the most painless ways of dying, when you drown it's over in a matter of seconds once the breathing reflex kicks in.

You'll probably pass out before you know what's going on.

The idea is scary though, I agree, but the rational me says there are worse ways to go.

I think like that for the most part, but when you're honest with yourself you just know there are things you fear as well.

I know a lot of people who say they aren't afraid of anything. 9 times out of 10 those are the biggest pussies.

Maybe it's cos it's the closest I've felt to what I think it feels like to die...haha, if that makes sense. I mean, haven't you ever been play-fighting and then you get a pillow over the face and just the feeling of it for a bit too long is really uncomfortable and scary? One time, at a really big concert, there were people surrounding me and pushing me and the air became stuffy and I felt like I couldn't breathe and nearly passed out. Times like those, a panic goes through my body that doesn't happen with anything else.

Gah.
I dislike it very much.

I'm very claustrophbic
I remember my bigger brother sitting on the end of my sleeping bag when I crawled down to to the bottom of it. He thought it was funny, I nearly freaked out.
So a very bad senario for me would be to SCUBA dive down to a underwater cave that was small and tight, and then lose my light and run out of air.

The only thing I can think of that would be worse is to grow up and turn into a conservative republican : )

  I'm not afraid of any animal, from the time I was a little kid I've been grabbing snakes from under rocks and letting bees crawl on my hands. I've stood less than a foot away from a cougar who wanted nothing more in that moment than to rub up against me and be scratched. I can read animals, I've never been bitten by a dog or a snake.
For a while now I have had a white-knuckle fear of car accidents or hitting a deer while driving. I also have a mild fear of someone attacking me while I'm walking in the dark. I have a fear of cancer because it runs in my mothers family. And I have a general fear of death before my time, and leaving or being left by those I need.
When I am afraid of something I tend to plunge through it and then collapse afterwards.

*Wrote this while waiting for my turn online and had a spastic incident with my modem that reminded me of another fear; the dreadful gray window baring the words too terrible to repeat. *shudder*

I appreciate you're love of animals, and feeling of connection to them mouse, but you were fortunate on that encounter if it was a wild one. Anthropomorphizing animal behavior is one thing when it's a kitty cat, and quite another when it's a big cat.

As much as I admire Pumas (and would love to see one in the wild) they will attack and kill humans, and do so more lately because of human encroachment into their territory. Just in the past few months it happened to a female jogger. I don't care if you're St. Francis of Asissi, you need to respect a wild mountain lion and keep your distance.
Horn (Seigfried and Roy) worked with "tame" tigers his whole life and still he was attacked and nearly killed by one.
I believe some people can have a special connection with animals (no sheep jokes please), but even they need to have a healthy respect for the harm certain animals can cause.

This was no 'wild' cat in full sense of the word, he was raised by humans and had been in close contact with them till he crested about a hundred and seventy pounds. There was heavy wire fencing between us and he was purring his head off. I knew him well enough to know he liked me, the other keepers even teased that he had a crush on me, and even if he some how came in full contact with me he probably wouldn't hurt me, at least intentionally. Not that I would test it. I have also been close to a young cougar who I did not know, he was on a leash and I was on my guard.

No matter how well you know a cat, no matter if it's a tabby or a tiger, they are unpredictable. You flutter your fingers in front of a tabby, chances are it'll scratch you no matter if it loves or hates you, you can never turn your back on a large cat. Ever.
I can't help but think that there is something wrong with the wild cougars that attack people, if the person trips and the cougar sees a weakness it's all instinct. But when a cat attacks someone on a bike, or several people walking together, I can't see how it would do that unless there was something wrong with it, mentally or otherwise.

I have no delusions of immortality, addi. While I've never been bitten by a dog I have been scratched by a cat. I'm nothing if not wary.

I figured as much mouse. Just me being over protective of someone I don't want to see get hurt is all.
I admire your love of animals. A caged cougar is different (but still a thrill that close).

I was brutally attacked by a wild woman once, but that's a different story for another time : )

I've got a pile of their cds. I thought that you were continuing with the referencing of Monty Python(the khights of nee from Holy Grail, it). The name of the band came from a Monty Python bit about how there're so many bands starting out, that one day, band names would be meaningless like Toad the Wet Sprocket. But it was wrong of me to assume that there was a connection. Nevermind!

Don't feel bad. I didn't know about the toad thing until a year of two ago. My life is just a huge pile of quotes from and references to anything and everthing. Usually, I only have my brother to exchange them with. Recently, we were at a grad. party and we mimed the entire scene in Chasing Amy where Jason Lee and Joey Lauren Adams were telling stories of their bad experiences with oral sex.

ha! I wore a blister on my hand working in my garden yesterday. I put most of it in a little over 3 weeks ago and it's rained every day since then. Now that it's finally dry enough to go in, the weeds are horrible.
I had a gas powered cultivator, but it needs repair, so I gotta do it with a hoe. So I'll be a hoe'in around tonite for awhile.
I might take you up on that offer someday. My brother lives in Charlotte.
And if you're ever in Ky. I'll fix you a mint julep and some possum pie.

  hi i'm new here, i thought i'd start my brand new forum account with this post, i like the topic 'fear' its something that we all must face, and something that could change us all.

things like clowns and drowning are all very well, but surely nothing physical could be your worst, Worst fear. physical pain goes away, either with healing or death.

imagine how it feels to lose the person you love most in the whole world without getting to say goodbye.

or how it feels to live with the regret of not being there for them when they needed it most.. when they were being attacked.

i fear that more than any ammount of pain or spiders, lol.
