Your fears?

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 5, 2011, 3:24 AM

My last journal has made me very curious about this topic? what scares you and why? What gives you nightmares and do you have any phobias?

Mine would have to be....hmmm let me see? there is very little I am scared of in respect to what the population is usually scared of? I love heights, love getting injections..., love getting piercings, love going to the dentist, dark places don't scare me? I don't believe in ghosts or anything paranormal, Blood and gore don't phase me in the slightest, I love insects, arachnids, rodents reptiles, bats etc...but there are two things I am very afraid of. One is space, it just freaks me the fuck out... I hate watching documentaries about space because it reminds me of the vast expanses of the universe and how mortal and insignificant mankind is :iconcryforeverplz: the other thing that terrifies me is deep water... the thought of it just makes me panic... you don't know whats down there and I always panic I will lose sight of the surface. If I can see the sea-floor or continental shelf (whatever its called) then I couldn't care less >.>

( and death...though I am sure everyone is terrified of that, but I don't believe in an after life so it being the end of my consciousness makes me sad and scared *even though I will be dead so I won't know*...I am too young to worry about these things right? :iconotlplz:)

Fears? Hmm... hard to say. I have a mild case of claustrophobia. I can freak myself out with my own mind about what I think other people are doing. I get a little paranoid if a car follows me too closely while I'm driving. I also have a mild fear of dogs.

I did get mostly over my fear of dogs by forcing myself to pet my friend Steve's mom's Collies. I thought they were the most beautiful dogs I'd ever seen in my life. He knew that I was scared of dogs and would get out of the car before me to make sure they were held in check... and then I'd go over to them and give them love. My claustrophobia hits mainly whenever I've been travelling way too long in a car.

Wow I can't believe there is someone else who is afraid of deep water. I hate it, like if they show it in movies or anything I'm scared. I don't think I could go on a cruise because of this and if I did I would stay on the ship and not look outside much. I'm extra scared thinking about what could be under the surface, huge things like whales and sunken ships.... *shivers* I'm getting a bit scared just thinking about it. XD

I am afraid of all insects. I hate them. So. Much. Other than that, there isn't really anything I'm specifically afraid of. Sure, I dislike a lot of other things (like needles, heights, small spaces, crowded rooms), but I'm not really afraid of them. ...I don't really know how to describe it, lol.

The only other 'fear' I think I have is more of me being paranoid. Any shadow that seems just a bit off can send me into a panic attack. So I guess I'm kind of afraid of the dark? Lol. More of what could be in it, really.

I have a phobia of dolls, especially the porcellain dolls with the eyes that always snap open and close, yeah it mind sound stupid, I know they are just objects, and no, I'm not afraight that they "start to move and choke me with their little porcelain hands" or such shit,
I just don't like to see em in generall and I don't like to be in one room with more than one of theese things.
The fact that They are liveless objects which look like individuals, but can't change their expression or move, seems similiar to corspes to me. In horror movies/games I like to see them. Because when I watch a horror movie, I want to be scared, feel the scary atmosphere. And they are just what I find scary to look at. I think no one can explain where their phobia came from. I think it has to do with the dolls in the bed room of my mother, where I slept as a child.

also when I was a child, I was very scared of the thought to be trapped alone in one room for years or even for a livetime. I knew about the cases where this really happened. For example Kaspar Hauser. The thought of that gave me nightmares.

Well, I have a fear (but not phobia) of zombies and velociraptors - as in I get paranoid that somehow they will exist... and be in my house at night. *sob*

I am randomly petrified of spiders out of habit. -- When I was younger I used to pretend they freaked me out (long story) and it became a habit, so I only think they scare me... but they don't. Sort of. IT'S COMPLICATED. UGH. ;A;

... but I have a phobia of anger.
Anger can freak me out to the point where I feel suicidal.

Hmm, I used to be afraid of the dark, but not so much now. Right now, my biggest fears are thieves, doorbells/phonerings (I'm serious here xD) and mosquitoes (I'm serious I'm telling youuuu!!! xD).
And, yes, death, but I try not to think about it. Otherwise, I can't feel my stomach. :S

I'm afraid of cockroaches.
Bring on rats, spiders, bats and what not...but please no cockroaches.

deep water is kinda scary i guess

HOLYSHIT. Space freaks me out too! I always get weird looks for it, but mines the same. It's too vast, all that space... I dunno. Same with open sea, where the only thing you can see is water. I think that's why eternity scares me too. You can even begin to fathom what eternity would be like, freaks me out.
But i am hell claustrophobic too. (Yes, claustrophobic, yet afarid of too vast a space, hard to please right here) as in, I can't even go in elevators without hyper ventialting. It's ridculous.
Also - Getting lost. I am terrified when I am lost. not normal either, like, it's something that really terrifies me, which is why I think I freak out so much over the idea of vast open sea \:

I guess you could say I have philophobia and cops make me nervous, I don't like them (bad experiences with them when I was little) :police:
its mainly my over active imagination that scares me though I will see something that isn't really there like a man with no skin walking up to my front door or dream of class mates coming to kill me :dead:
it makes me paranoid sometimes... My dad also scares me...
never ending things like space and # freak me out I thought about it in the shower 1 time and got really dizzy. I think I was also thinking of time and time travel too.
I like watching history things and learning about things in space, irony? :dizzy:

My friends thing Im break cuz I can hide my fears, but Im a chicken, I hide from mail men and any kind of service/ delivery ppl :fear: this is a problem when you need to sign for a delivery

Waves scare me... Like at the beach. Because I have creepy recurring dreams about huge tidal waves dragging me into the ocean and I always drown. It's horrible. :fear: I am not afraid of deep water, as long as there are no waves. It's gotten to the point where even small waves scare me. I live in Florida and am terrified to go to the beach. :(

I also have a fear of commitment. :XD: As well as 2 random strange phobias: Vacuum cleaners, and banana trees. Yeah, that's about it.

I don't really have any phobias per se...Like, I'll be mildly freaked out by something and then later be like, That wasn't so bad, i.e. the dentist, shots, etc.

Instead I usually tend to think so much and analyze a topic till there's nothing more to it. I'll find all the sides to any argument relating to it and I usually drive myself into a major headache. For example, while some people I know are scared of the end of the world, I usually think about the pros/cons of it, what would happen, how it would happen...when/why it would happen, where I would be...etc.

If that made any sense in the least.

Meh, I'm also fine with blood and gore and darkness, but I can't stand spiders. Although over the last half a year or so I have gotten better - I have managed to hoover up some spiders without crying, like I did three years ago. ANYWAY, you don't like space? I think it's amazing... I love learning about space, it's probably one of the only things to do with science that I have an interest in, and it makes me feel happy when I look at the stars and see documentarys with clips of space and stuff... it's amazing.
But yeah I have a pretty normal fear, I guess :)
Tavoriel Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I actually freakin LOVE space. It could hold anything at all. Even though I share the universe with nasty stuff here and there that's right here in front of my nose, there's a very real possibility that I also share it with unimaginable wonders I will never see.

I'm afraid a ghost will come out of the dark (I'm not afraid of the dark, but rather, some that lurks in it)
A zombie will attack me in the bathroom
Spiders and most species of insects
Skin deep cuts
Some heights, if precarious
Walking on thin ice

Im afraid of the same thing :O so when you swim (in the ocean or a lake) and you can’t see the bottom or the water is murky and you are not 100% sure what’s underneath you
im scared of that cause my imagination goes crazy xD

I have worm phobia which I developed as a child, I was often bully. As people knew I was afraid of them and they often used them to bully me. Just seeing a drawn pics of those, I srsly feel sick to my stomach.

And then space thingy like you, then doctors/hospitals(I hate needles and never feel comfortable at hospitals).

I somewhat scared of the dark, though I don't believe in ghosts or paranormal beings and such. I don't know*shrugs*. It's just, I'm not comfortable in the dark that's all there is too it. I guess:hmm:.

Let me think... well, fear of blood and death surprise nobody.
Except them I'm afraid of spiders (it's fine with the insects, but spiders... yuck!), huge spaces - no, not the space, actually (though there were times when the starry sky scared me) - but, well... huge fields of snow (quite a common thing in Russian village), long deserted routes, etc.

Then... oh, that's funny. I'm not afraid of pain, height or dark. But... the screen from the Matrix movie... you know, that black one with the numbers and symbols moving up and down in lines - gosh. I made me cry once I first saw it. And it is still quite scary.

And... probably, water. Rivers, lakes, ponds. Not only can't I swim - I also shit bricks at the very idea of just getting into water. Let it be a mere pool.

anything medical related..i have panic attacks at almost every doctor visit, or if i'm anywhere near a hospital o_e

I have thanatophobia, the fear of death. I also have a fear of needles/pointed objects, like knifes (Aichmophobia) and a fear of being alone. (Monophobia)
greendala74 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2011
O.o moni im scared of almost exactly the same things you are, the open ocean is my only phobia but space makes me a little nervous, just the fact that the phisics are just different enough to screw with our natural balance and mental state makes me very cautious of it i dont really care about death but those two things are really the only things on this planet that have ever scared me i absolutely adore all that is horror and every living creature that i can see even if their natural habitat is the open ocean but if i was ever dumped out there i think i would have the only phobic reaction i have ever had in my life. thanks for makeing me feel like less of a freak lol ^^

Oh my gosh, we have the same fears~!!!! I could never be a scuba diver or a astronaut I would have a panic attack, deep under water and space seems so beautiful ;A; but I would seriously cry if you put me in either situation.

Hmm, Well I have arachniphobia, I'm terrified of the dark, and I recently found out that Darkness is an actual person, or creature to be exact, I found it on tumblr, but anyways...
Yea, not knowin what comes after death, uh, the unknown probs, like if u look down at deep dark water, or into a never ending sea of darkness, you don't kno whats in there, is it friendly or will it kill you? I'm scared of a lot of things, but I like scary things, I am a horror junkie but I can't watch a horror movie from start to finish to save my life.

Umm, I suppose I have a lot of fear xD But I try hard not to get phased by them.
I hate being in total darkness along with enclosed areas ( I will have a panic attack )
Some bugs ( is it weird that I freak when I see a common house spider but when I see things like tarantulas I have a love for them? Same with snakes ), HEIGHTS, Clowns, and ( sometimes ) driving on the freeway. Lol. Lets see, space also creeps me out as well as The World In Between or how ever others prefer it ( The place were spirits, demons and stuff reside between Heaven, Hell and Earth ). C: But i'm REALLY interested in those stuff xD
I'm just weird.

If it has more than four legs, and I don't care if it's dead or not, I'm terrified.

And needles. God needles are AWFUL.

I'm the biggest chicken ever, I just realized. I have way more fears than I have room to list.

I'm afraid of flying, stinging insects (such as hornets, wasps, bees, ect.) when I was very small, I didn't know what a wasp was at the time, and picked it up out of the grass due to curiosity. Didn't end well. Been afraid ever since, though I think I'm slowly getting over it.
I'm also afraid of hot things, especially boiling water or grease. I got first and second degree burns on my legs when I was younger (between 8 and 13 years old) and had to be in a wheel chair for a couple of weeks. It sucked. A lot.

Random thing I just realized, I picked up the wasp with my left hand, cause I remember my left thumb being stung, but I'm right handed...wouldn't I have picked it up with my right hand?
Maybe because of the sting, I did things with my right hand, and grew accustomed to
Maybe I was suppose to be left handed o.o
