Totally agree with you on that ^^^ Sometimes Ill even ignore my fear, cuz I hate the feeling of being afraid more than I hate the thing Im fearing at the time. LOL if that makes any sense
As a child I was afraid of Indians, ya know - with bows and arrows. But not anymore.
Im not afraid of Spiders, but I am afraid of junebugs - dunno why.
Not afraid of death itself, but I am afraid of losing a sense. (like sight or hearing)
Not afraid of heights, but I am afraid of falling from very high places. (I think its just the fact that you get time to think about whats happening before you actually hit the ground)
This may sound weird, but Im very very afraid of police officers and police vehicles. Seriously, almost to the point of fainting. Even if Im doing absolutely nothing wrong, I get a pain in my elbows
, my legs feel weak, and my chest feels like its going to explode whenever I see a cop. My head even feels all cloudy, like Im high or dunk. I feel like I could just die of relief when they are out of sight.
One time at the age of 17, my friend got pulled over, and I was even in the back seat
. I was scared enough that I started shaking so hard (bordering on violently) that the cops asked me to get out of the car to check for drugs on me and to give me a sobriety test. Of course they didnt find anything, and I was completely sober, but I was sooo embarrassed and scared.
Im so afraid of the pain of giving birth that Im considering getting my tubes tied, and adopting a kid instead, if Im ever ready to have one.
Another irrational one is having my teeth crumble out of my head. I have this recurring dream that all my teeth crumble into pieces one by one into my mouth all within a day (in my dream that is) and it feels SOOO real that as soon as I wake up I check to make sure all my teeth are there........ I think its cuz I chipped my tooth one time, and bit down on the chip that broke off.
Its one of those willy nilly feelings, to bite down on a piece of your own tooth.
I dont even like to eat anything particularly hard and crunchy: anything beyond chips and crackers is a big no no. Even those hard burnt chips that you get in the occasional handful find their way to the trash.
