I am most afraid of losing my husband.  Without him I don't know if I could make it.  He has been my lifeline thru this mess we call dialysis.

I am fearful of heights and thunderstorms. I visited the Grand Canyon, it took me an hour to walk the glass bottom observation desk. I was totally awed at what I had seen. It took me about 15 minutes to get back on land.

I don’t fear heights.
I grew up with people who loved climbing mountains and I joined them very early in my life.
The mountains are a very beautiful, the colours of the plants are unforgettable and the sight is breath-taking.
Climbing up a mountain & reaching its peak is just wonderful!

When I was a student, I took part in a discovery-tour south of Agadir/Morocco & we had to be careful about sand vipers.
I wore secure boots and sometimes I saw one of them. They moved very elegantly and it was fascinating to watch them.

I don’t mind spiders either, we had once one in our kitchen hiding behind the washing-machine
and every time the washing was spinning, the little spider came running
from behind the washing-machine, every time the same route. We affectionately called him “Charly”
& we thought he was quite eccentric. We have no idea what he lived on because we keep it very clean.

I am not very keen on needles, in case they are not clean, but I don’t fear them.

Coming to think of it, I don’t have any particular fears, except of “the big D”. I don’t fear the procedure because it is a life-saver.

What I do fear are the people who operate these D-machines. What makes them being nasty to vulnerable patients?
What makes them being interested in the job in the first place?
I mean, they surely must know how vulnerable and oversensitive patients are, so what is their angle?
I do hope they do not enjoy hurting fragile & vulnerable patients?

That's the point. I prefer to see the spider than what it eats.

My policy is to allow one spider per room. If I see two, one goes for the chop.

I am afraid of spiders because they go where they don't need to be. Coming in from the car one evening a few weeks ago, I walked through a web in our yard, I guess. A little later I felt something on my face, but assumed it was my hair because sometimes the curls tickle. I swept my hair aside and a spider flew off my hand. ARRRGGHHHH! That was the end of him/her. Then, for about 3 days afterward, I had the heebie jeebies and almost crashed my car when the air conditioning blew a strand of hair on my shoulder. I am hopeless.

For a couple weeks, I kept waking up with more bug bites, but only ever on my right hand. I finally figured out there was a spider hiding in the upper-right corner of my bed, where my right hand rested sometimes. It didn't bother me that he was there, but I didn't want to be bitten anymore, so I cleared out that corner. I also have a spider living in the top part of the tomato cage I placed around my leaning jalapeno plant. The plant takes up the lower part, and there's a nice big web taking up the upper part. I leave it alone in case it helps get rid of bugs that might chew up the plants.  :beer1;

As for what I fear, well, I've probably already made that obvious. I'm afraid of people. Specifically, their judgement (or my harsh perception of their negative judgement) of me. It's completely irrational, but it's what I deal with. I think I'd rather be afraid of something silly, like chocolate.  :rofl;

I know that feeling.. I have what I call a paranoid voice in the back of my head.  It tends to get me in trouble, as it tells me scenarios of how people who obviously care about me may have an alternative agenda.  I always think that people are looking at me and judging, and some of that is because I'm quiet and shy around people I don't really know

I need to know someone well to be chatty with them... unless I'm chatting online.. *L*  it's easier online..

I surprised myself, when I met my best friend for the first time.  We'd been talking online for about 6 months and I was really nervous to meet her.  It was a little awkward at first, but after about 10 minutes, we were talking like we'd known each other for years.
