Welcome to the new people!
Two things TCS people doesn't know about me YET-
I CAN'T sleep without something covering my ears.. Had a fear as a kid that someone would sneak in and cut off my ears. Ironic thing is that I'm deaf!! Why would I have a fear of someone cutting my ears off?!?
I have a DEATHLY fear of snakes since I was bitten on a finger when I was a kid. My brother found a snake and brought it over to us to show and I reached out to touch the snake and got bitten on one of my fingers. My brother tried to pull the snake away but its fangs was still in my finger so when he pulled it away, the fangs tore my finger..
My family got the snake in a jar and rushed me to the hospital to see if the snake was poisonous. The dr who was to treat me took forever getting venom from the snake (over an hour) and another dr walked in and asked what he was doing. When the 1st dr told him what he was doing, the 2nd dr said, "the snake isn't poisonous". The 1st dr asked how he knew that and the 2nd dr said, "if it was poisonous, that girl would be dead by now." Ever since, I can't EVEN watch movies with a snake in it without getting sick. I still have a scar on my finger from where he bit me. Weird thing is I HAVE NO MEMORY OF THE WHOLE INCIDENT.... I am just TERRIFIED OF SNAKES but can't remember why.. (mom told me what happened after I went to a birthday party and FREAKED out when a friend showed us her snake- I couldn't understand why I was so terrified of snakes and that's when my mom told me what happened to me as a kid)
