Life of a Blogger: Fears



Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme by Novel Heartbeat.  It gives us a chance to talk about non-bookish passions and interests.

My one main fear is a fear of falling.  Not heights.  But falling.  Basically, if I don't feel secure and I feel like I might fall, I hate it.  Ladders, suspension bridges, see-through floors, rope courses, grated staircases, stand up paddleboards, rock name it.  If it is not securely fastened to something and immovable, I don't want to be on it.  

Other things that freak me out:

- The idea of being swarmed.  By snakes, rats, insects, Tribbles, doesn't matter.
- Monkeys.  They creep me out to no end.
- Something horrible Happening, like a terrible natural disaster, or being tortured, or being attacked. I probably would not survive the apocalypse.  I'm not even sure I would want to.
- The feeling of being suffocated or not being able to breathe.  I can't even wear turtlenecks.
- Having someone or something die in front of me, or worse having to kill something.  My friend had to put a baby bunny down after her cat attacked it.  I admire her for putting it out of its misery, but I know I couldn't have done it.
- Losing my daughter.  Losing my husband is a very close second, but the idea of my daughter dying is an idea I can't think about.

  1. Fear of falling was what kept me from skateboarding, even though I really wanted to try it! I hate monkeys, but it's not that I'm afraid, I just think they're ugly lol. Oh my gosh, I hate anything around my neck! My throat is really sensitive, so any slight pressure and I feel like I'm choking. I can wear turtlenecks, but they are far from comfortable >.<
