What ae you afraid of?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I was trying to find something under my couch and a tiny spider came out. It made me jump! Why is it that something so small can make me feel so nervous? It crawled back under the couch. I am sitting on it now and I keep thinking it is going to come crawl on me!!

Another thing I am afraid of is bats!!! I had an encounter with one a couple of times and I was the most scared I have ever been in my life!

What is it that you are scared of or makes you jump?

Spiders! I found a baby one on me the other day when I was typing and I freaked out and killed it when I jumped.

Bees, wasps, and hornets.

I am not allergic, just TERRIFIED of them, and will run screaming from them. For some strange reason, they seem to know this, and will go out of their way to buzz in a circle around me.

Probably cooties of any kind meaning bugs, snakes, scorpions, Tarantulas, and heights and water

Well, I'm afraid of heights so certainly no jumping there.

It's not a phobia, but it really sets me on edge when I hear unexpected noises. Like doors slamming when I'm the only one home, I generally jump in my seat at that.

Oh I know the feeling! I didn't even think of that! I will run from them too! I almost cry when no matter what you do to get away from them, they just keep buzzing around you! So I completely understand!

I completely hate being home alone at night time! I get nervous at every noise that I hear!

I didn't realize I was so afraid of so many things until I started reading everyone else's posts!

I hate most categories of bugs. And here we have a lot of them, BIG ones!!

I hate spiders, although I will suck them up in my dust buster if provoked. I don't like the crickets I get in the basement, bees, hornets, wasps, and other stinging insects. I've never even seen a bat in person but if I did I would freak. Snakes are another fraidy thing for me and I also don't like heights. There I think that's all of em..

I dont particularly like bugs, but I'm not afraid of them. I do jump if one is on me and I dont know about it

Most of all, I'm afraid of heights - I go all wierd inside and it feels like my inners are falling out not nice

I know, it's almost funny if it wasn't so scary.

Here I am, this little but tough, Harley-riding biker chick, not afraid of much of anything (bring it on, world,) and along comes a 1 inch long yellow jacket, and I completely lose my mind and turn into a terrified whimpering mess of a big baby.

I was thinking nothing until I just found this unknown bug around the litter box. EWWWW I don't like bugs especially small ones.

LOL It's always funny when it isn't actually happening at the moment! I picture myself running like crazy from a yellow jacket and burst out laughing. But if one came buzzing by me now I would be running like wild!

Moths and butterflies. *shudder* They always seem to gravitate towards me as well, like they can sense my fear. *shudders again*

Spiders, and you should have seen the one in my kitchen on sunday evening Even Sophie wouldn't touch it, she just sat looking at it. Now if Rosie had got her beady eyes on it that would have been it!.

that about sums it up for me too!

Worms, bugs (except flies, moths / butterflies, lady bugs, mosquitos), snakes, spiders, pitch dark, getting lost, and death.
post #25 of 29
This question has been posed before and I must really be a freak. I'm not really scared of anything. Not like freaking out, run screaming, legs weak type scared. I don't like the idea of dying, and the thought of losing a loved one (including the kitties) is very depressing and sad. But I'm not scared of it.

I don't like worms. They gross me out, and I do walk on my tiptoes in the rain because the thought of stepping on one and getting worm innards on my shoes is disgusting. But I'm not scared of them.

deffently spiders, ear wigs, and since last year mice.
the story goes , i had just taken my lilly in after a few days she was still in my bedroom at nights. i woke up to her playing with one of her toys , when ig ot closer it wasnt a toy , but a dead mouse, i never screamed so loud . never even knew we had mice , bad other 2 cats for not finding them lol. anyway i started sorting out all the coburds looking for any signs of mice. i was sorting out one with my sons toys in i was picking them up like normal when i picked up a furry one thinking nothing of it untill i saw it , it was dead. since then i cant stand them , for weeks after i was shaking my shoes covers everything made me jump ffs lol. we found a further 2 after that dead. since then no signs , thank you lilly xxx lol

I have watched programs on some really poisonous spiders in australia. I think they are called funnel spiders or something like that. They are worse than black widow. I also saw a show on some real wicked ants in australia......

Spiders- i have the scars from several brown recluse bites to justify my hatred of spiders

Hissing cockroaches- oh my gosh! had a good scare one time when one of those hissed at me

Bees & Wasps- hate them too- i'm allergic to wasp stings.

Clowns- Uhhhhh!!!!
