Most people don’t know that I love to cook and it is my method of decompressing when I’m stressed. When we have people over, they always act like they are an inconvenience when I make an elaborate meal instead of ordering pizza.

We just moved from VA to TX and my mom came to spend a week and kept asking me not to “stress about cooking” for her to impress her….I just wanted to share my joyyyyyyy lol

Most people have no idea that I’m petrified of thunderstorms. Yes, I get made fun of by the few who do know. They think it’s childish. My husband, however, understands why I’m afraid of them and just lets me cuddle extra close with him til it’s over.

mrs.joiner:  I’m not necessarily afraid of the dark – but I sleep with a light on when my husband isn’t home. For example, he had “guys night” tonight and probably will stay at a friends if he’s been drinking and I’ll sleep with the bathroom light on, lol.

I try to hide it…. but….I have an irrational fear of having to pee and not having access to a bathroom. It’s all I think about on road trips!

Most people don’t know I overly obsessively worry about worst case scenarios. Like in a very strange, over the top kind of way. Can’t control it.

I have a fear of birds – the appearance of their black eyes, awkward necks, their talons/claws and the way they walk – freaks me out! When I was a small child, I had a traumatizing experience with hundreds of pigeons in a park – can’t deal with birds ever since.

mrs.joiner:  oh you’re not alone, I’m still afraid of the dark too. In fact, I think twice about getting up to go pee in the middle of the night because that means walking in the dark and I end up speed walking back into my room all panicky.

mrs.joiner:  I turn on the light in the hall beforethe bathroom  and the bathroom light, it’s the shutting the light off on my way back that freaks me out, like something in the darkness is just about to grab me, or as I pully hand awY from the switch I think something is going to grab my hand in the dark, that’s usually when I haul ass into my room. That’d be my cardio for the day what with my heart going a mile a minute lol

HoorayLouLou:  I day dream all day long and play out scenarios that might occur. so much so that it probably takes me twice as long to get anything done that my Dh asks me why do I take so long to do things. Ive never told him lol I must get funny looks on the train to work because I tend to space out and end up looking in front of me or at someone’s foot but not really looking at them because I’m in my own world. maybe that’s why I like JD from scrubs so much because he does the same thing lol

That I never graduated from highschool. I dropped out for very legitimate reasons and got a GED. I am still embarrassed about it. My daughter doesn’t even know, and I get big eye rolls from her about how excited I am that she is  graduating highschool.

I am college educated now though

mrs.joiner:  

CircleFace:  

it’s actually a form of OCD, to consistently and obsessively worry about worst case scenarios. It’s pretty bad for me. I drive down the highway and consistently think “gee if that car crashed would we survive” or “if someone broke into our home could I get me and my children to safety” or my FI’s fave “if the moon was to be thrown out of orbit by just a little would we survive, or do I need to buy more bottled water and canned food” (That was thanks to a book I read! LOL)

I’ve always been like this, then we went through a very serious tragedy where, Thank God, I woke up and was able to wake everyone else up. So since then it’s just gotten a lot worse. I’m always worrying throughout the whole day. 

Example: My FI is going night fishing and I really asked him for an exact location incase he fell and got hurt and couldn’t explain to me where he was. HA. He assured me he would be okay and I just laughed after it came out. I can laugh at myself because I KNOW these are so out of the ordinary situations and would just not happen. I just have always done it! It’s never prevented me from DOING anything on a daily basis so I never thought of doing anything about it. If it was to prevent me from doing something, I would go see someone about it.
