Unhappy Your fears...

I've always liked all sorts of animals, and i was never ever afraid... well thats what i thought. Today at the trip to the reptile shop, a friend was holding on a turantuala and it jumped on me, and i kinda jumped and said AAAH! really loud haha. I think i'm afraid of spiders LOL. Didn't think they were scary lookin untill i held one today, it was my first time... ** shruggs **

don't think i'd ever own spiders... though i do think scorpians are cool!

I am afraid of spiders, definately. I think some spiders are some of the most beautiful creatures on this Earth, though.

I am DEFINATELY afraid of heights! I literally have to walk near the wall on the second floor at the mall.
It's SO bad!

As far as "animals" go...centipedes and millipedes really scare me.

I am not familiar with handling snakes...so I can't say that I'm afraid of them, because I would handle them...but I know I'd be nervous at first.

ohhh...and maggots! Maggots just freak me out in every way possible!!!

I actually have quite a few phobias. For animals:

1) Spiders. Terrified of them. Can't explain why.
2) Horses. I saw someone get kicked square in the face by a horse when I was young, and have been scared of them since.

Other misc. Phobias:

1) Teletubbies. They are serial killers, I swear!!! And what the **** is with that baby in the sky???? AAAAAHHHHH!!!! SAY NO TO CRACK! YOU END UP INVENTING SHOWS LIKE THIS!!!!

2) Heights. I plan to go skydiving to cure this one.
3) Suffocation. Of all the ways to die, this is the one I fear the most. Which brings me to another animal one:
4) Bees and Wasps. It's not the insects that scare me. It's death by asphyxiation that scares me. See above. (btw, I have an anaphylactic allergy to insects.)
5) Deep water. I plan to go shark diving to cure this one. But this probably has more to do with #3 above as well.

I think I'll end it there before people start to think I'm just a big p**sy.

Spiders... I definitely do not like spiders. Insects in general really... lol. Especially ones with many legs....

I'm not too bad with heights, but I don't like ladders... go figure. Somewhat afraid of the dark, but I'm ok as long as I can see even a little bit. Pitch blackness I don't like though....

Oh, I forgot to mention sharks. I am SO afraid of sharks. I can't even go near the ocean because I am so afraid of them..and I live in Florida, about 10 minutes away from the beach. It's horrible. I went to the beach one time when I was a kid and someone near me yelled "Shark!!!" and I will never forget how scared I was.

Some of my fears include:
- seaweed (you never know, there could be a finger or something caught in it )
- spiders (completely irrational, I would love to have a trapdoor spider or a mexican redknee but I'm afraid my fear would interfere with its proper care)
- fire
- afraid of heights in that I always feel like I'm gonna throw myself over the edge if I stand to close and get that funny feeling and weak in the knees, but love being high up
- water (oceans and lakes are the worse, even swimming pools give me the willies sometimes... first movie I ever remember seeing was Jaws... I was two years old... can you blame me?)
- stick bugs (too many times was I startled as a kid thinking they are actually sticks)
- like Marisa, if I have to sleep by myself I cannot do it in complete darkness... I can't see the boogie man if its pitch black and nobody is there to protect me! )
- cyclists (drunken or not) on roads when I'm driving (a recently aquired fear)

ohhhyeah...I'm afraid of deep water too. Especially if it's NOT a swimming pool, and you can't see the bottom.

and another one...Death. I'm definately afraid of death...mine, or anyone else's.

geeee...how morbid am I....?

one night I sitting on the couch in the living room...
all of a sudden, my daughter started screaming, and CRYING...she was pointing her finger at the couch, trying to talk....but couldn't. She just kept jumping around, and crying hysterically...pointing.
I thought Freddie Krueger was coming out from under my couch! I jumped up and turned around to see what it was that was scaring her so bad.
It was a spider. a spider no bigger than one of these smilies .
Honestly, I don't even know how she saw the stupid thing!
Anyway...I have never seen anyone as afraid of spiders as her. She bursts into tears every time she sees one...even daddy long legs!

LOL daddy long legs are the scariest ones!!!!!!!!! Hahaha I could've probably taken the cake for the worst fright several years ago... I used to go in to a complete shock..... couldn't move, speak, do anything I was so scared....completely paralyzed with fear......then I progressed to the freaking out part.... I couldn't even look at pictures or be in the same room as a tarantula....now I'm proud to say I've gotten myself to the point where I can feed and water a tarantula (no guarantee I won't panic and jump back if it moves) and pick up those white spiders or jumping spiders.....in fact I had a whole colony of those white spiders keeping me company in my car for the past two years
