@LeonardLady:  clowns. I really really hate them

@LeonardLady:  bees/wasps – things that can sting me.  There is no reason for me to be afraid, and when I say I’m afraid,I mean I will run away screaming like a 5 year old if there’s one within 10 feet of me

My list was pretty long for a while. Now though there are only a few things… fear of medication.. In my last pregnancy I wouldnt even take tylenol. Now on my second pregnancy I’m made to take 7, about to be 8, medications. Sucks but my fear goes on the back burner when a baby depends on it.

recently i have overcome my fear of driving and dogs. Can’t shake the spider fear though. Biggest fear but not irrational, that my children will see the bad in the world, but i guess thats every parents fear

BIRDS! I hate birds flying near me – it’s the erratic motion and the sound of flapping wings. I love to watch birds from a distance but don’t get them near me. I’ve had 3 instances of birds being in my house, twice because dogs brought them in and once one fell down my chimney and was flapping around in the fireplace behind the glass. I was so freaked out.

I think most people are at least a little wary of spiders, but my fear is definitely unhealthy. I think living alone has been good for me though, because if there’s a spider, I just have to deal with it! There was one sitting on my couch the other month, and I was in a complete panic. I killed the sucker though.

I also feel very wary in natural water – lakes, rivers, oceans. I just feel like something is going to grab my leg and pull me under. Or eat me.

When FI and sleep facing each other, I can’t help but thinking he’s stealing my oxygen, lol. So I end up lying on my back or rolling onto my other side. It’s silly I know, but I can’t help it. 

Also a few others that have been said above; birds (they aim for me I swear!), clowns, bees and wasps (I’m deathly allergic) and I won’t go past a certain point if I’m swimming at the beach, the ocean freaks me out.

Heights. Not really irrational but I feel nervous looking down from the fourth floor (in the mall) lol. I also hate when Dh drives on bridges especially those single lane ones. *cringe*

My lungs/ heart not working. Every now and then i touch my chest and feel my heart beat and think how strong it is and what if it just stops beating.

& a lot of things scare me, I wonder how I’d die in any situation. Final destination style so im really careful about everything lol.

@LeonardLady:  Everything!! Their horrible human hands. Their evil donkey faces. Their giant tails. The way they hop. How big they are. And apparently they can be vicious!! Just ask the Australian bees! And they travel in packs!!

One time at a zoo, I saw one hunched over its own tail, stroking it. It was… the worst thing ever.

I can’t believe I just did this, but I just Google-image searched them. Seriously, this is not right!!

OMG I’m like terrified of the dark esp when i’m alone. It creeps me out that someone is watching me and I can’t see anything. Or also being home alone sometime at night, I tend to scare my self because my dog just barks at random things and I don’t go to some of the rooms in the house. Also one of my biggest fear is heights. My FI thinks it silly(about the dark and being home alone sometime) but we all have something we’re scared off right?
