I’m no therapist, but I think a lot of your fears are pretty common.  A lot of people are afraid of the dentist (I am!), the dark, sharks, airplanes, and dying. I’m petrified of bugs and spiders, so you are braver than me when it comes to that.  I’m afraid of driving on the highway too–I have this elaborate system of backroad routes to avoid the highway.  I feel stupid that I’m afraid of highways (I used to drive on them, I don’t know where the fear came from all of a sudden), but then I say, why beat myself up over it, we all have issues.

When was the last time you had your meds adjusted or changed?  I find that after about 2 years, they stop working and I have to get on something different.

@BoiledPNut: Ditto.

Though I have a lot of fears too. It doesn’t really affect my day to day, but I always think about the worst case scenario.

I’m going to give some simple advice: Start with the small things. Each time you aren’t AS afraid as you were before is something to celebrate. Just start small and sooner than you know it, you will be courageous!
