Well as much as it shames me to admit, I am uncomfortable about thunderstorms. It's weird though, cause I love to watch them out the window, and I love seeing a good bolt of lightining, but it's just something about me being alone while there is a big thunderstorm. I'm just a big baby I guess.

My biggest fear.....Well I guess I would have to say that I have 2. I'm petrified of spiders and of rabbits. Ever since I watched a movie of Watership Downs, I can not be near them.

Ok here is mine, it wasnt mentioned in the list, but.............yeah well, its weird
Swans, i absolutely fear the freakin birds. Sure they are nice to see, but when i have to go past one on my bike, i go round in a big circle. If i cant do that, i turn around and find another route. Dont know why, but they just freak me out.
Ok, now you can all call me weird and stuff
At least im not part of the 22 percent of the men who are afraid of snakes

I don't like a lot of birds, but I am kinda scared of parrots, not the little ones, the HUGE parrots, well they seem huge to me anyway

I also try to avoid even numbers, I'm not scared of them, I just really don't like them

My #1 fear is bees and wasps. I'm not allergic to them, I'm just terrified. The little stinging critters were out in full force today on my mail route, and there were several people that didn't receive mail because I opened up their mailbox to find 4 or 5 yellow jackets in there. I hope nobody was watching me flail about and screech as they came flying out!
One box had 5 yellow jackets in there, and outgoing mail. Since it was a turnaround, I backed into the driveway and walked to the door to hand the gentleman his mail. He just laughed and walked to the box, opened it, grabbed the outgoing mail, shook it off a bit and handed it to me. How embarassing. The 70 something year old farmer had no fear, and the whole time I was cowering in my truck with all the windows closed.
Feel free to laugh at me now.

fateamber: lol, thats funny. Because I HATE odd numbers. Can't stand it. I have 5 snakes right now, and am going absolutely crazy because it's an odd number. Same because we only have one cat and 3 dogs. It just drives me crazy if I think about it! lol

I would have to say my BIGGEST fear is the dark. Not really the actual dark itself, but what MAY BE in the dark cornor of the room.

Heights and most insects, lol. But I would still rather be on a clif with beetles climbing all over me than to face what "may be" in that dark cornor. It doesn't help that I fully believe my house is haunted and I often see black/brown/or white streaks in the cornor of my vision, yet turn to look and there is nothing there.

I forgot the name of the movie, but after watching it i have a huge fear of cockroaches.

It's the movie where this guy ( i think) was trapped in a room with a CRAP load of them and they were crawling all in and out of his body (it's been YEARS since i seen it). After that i get freaked out when i see them and yell like the little girl i used to be. I don't like the thought of bugs crawling all through my body alive or dead!!!

I also CAN NOT drive in snow at all!!! when i was 17 i hit an ice patch i had the choice to hit the oncoming car or go into a 10 foot ditch, i chose the ditch and got stuck between 2 trees, it was a very close one. Luckly i wasn't hurt, but i still freak (crying and keeping eyes closed if i'm the passenger) REALLY bad when i have to drive in it now(whether i'm driving or the passenger). My boyfriend thinks it's funny but i seriously hate it.

I have a big fear of wasps, I will do just about anything to get away from them! Honey bees don't bother me, the only time I have been stung by a bee was when I have stepped on one, but those wasps will chase you down! LOL!
Leanne, those yellow jackets in the mail box could have been wood bees. They look very similar, but only the female can sting and most of the time she is in the nest. That would explain why the old farmer wasn't afraid of them About the only difference is yellow jackets have fuzzy butts and the wood bees have shiny butts, do you remember what their butts looked like? LOL!

ohhhh I forgot that one. I CAN'T swim out to where I can't touch the bottom of the lake/pond/ocean. If I can't see below me,or I can't see my feet, I freak out.

Well, you have a total of 8 animals! An even number :P

I'm not sure what my biggest fear is. It used to be fire (when I was young the building next to ours burned down). Now it's probably the old and mentally ill. They make me very uncomfortable, probably because I dislike the idea of becoming one.

I would have to say not being able to see/know where I'm going. Must be a control thing cause I can't handle being imobilized either. I can't swim on my back because I can't see what I'm in and where I'm going, driving in bad snow/rain storms where you can't see. DH thought it was funny, I was curled up on the couch under a blanket and he came and sat on the edges so I couldn't even move under the blanket, I freaked, he never did that again!

I really really hate spiders. I think a lot of them are beautiful, but I don't like the thought of them anywhere near me.

A real big fear, I still have is the dark. Yes, I never lost that childhood fear. I can't stand the dark indoors, outside's not bad, but dark rooms, basements and ESPECIALLY washrooms. I won't look at a mirror if there's no light. >shudder<
