Happy Tuesday!

What, if anything, are you afraid of? (Spiders, heights, etc.) What is H afraid of?

Re: QOTD 2/26/13

  • I'm afraid of storms! I hate them.. with a passion. I think it has to do with the fact that there is absolutely nothing I can do to stop/prevent them. Whenever we have tornado watches/warnings out.. I get so anxious. First crack of thunder too.. just makes my heart race.

    Last summer I was picking my friend up to go out to where our husband's were working.. and there had been a storm watch out, we were taking my dog and he was in the truck and it started to hail, so I took him into the garage. The sky was green and it was hailing and thundering and the power went out and my dog was freaking out in the garage. So I said I was going to hang out with him.. to calm him down... secretly.. I knew he'd calm me down... I sat there in the garage and pet him until it was over... 

     Hubby is afraid of heights.. which is funny because he works construction and is getting his pilot's license...

  • Snakes. I am deathly afraid of snakes. Even the little garden snakes. I won't even watch them on tv. Execpt maybe in Harry Potter.

    H is afraid of the water. This is why we will most likely never go to a tropical destination. I was surprised he was willing to get into the ocean and pool when we went to St Thomas a few years ago for my bother's wedding. It was so hot, he didn't care, as long as I stayed away from him. He had a terrible experience as a child, which is sad because I dream of taking the kids to the beach and pool and lake.

  • Me:  snakes - hate them, can't stand the sight of them and will literally go running like a little girl at the sound or sight of them.  Secondly - sharks.  Which is totally weird because we live in landlocked South Dakota.  Don't come across a lot of sharks around here!  I can't look at one on tv, or at a aquarium, magazines.  Nothing.  Not.gonna.do.it!!

    DH:  doesn't HATE a lot of things, but heights and spiders are his weakness.  He'll do what he needs to do, but he really doesn't like it! 

  • I'm afraid of any and all insects or creepy crawly thing-spiders snakes mice etc.

    The other day at work a bug came flying onto my desk and I freaked out! Ran out of my office and asked someone to come in and kill it while I was huddled in the corner of the room.  

    Im also afraid of flying so I'm usually medicated or slightly tipsy before getting on a plane.

    I don't think that H has any fears like this. He doesn't like spiders but he's not as afraid as I am.

  • I have quite an aversion to being late..  I get awful anxiety if I think we're going to be late. Strange, I know, but I think that's the closest I come to being scared of something.

    I don't typically care for bugs, snakes, spiders, etc, but I can usually deal with them without freaking out. Usually being the key word there ;)

  • I dont LIKE a lot of things, like balloons, bugs, mice...but im not afraid of them.

     

    H is not afraid of anything that I am aware of lol 

    "Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly"
  • I HATE bugs and spiders!! Like mostly everyone.

    I have this fear of whales and the deep ocean! It gives me anxiety! I love dolphins though they dont freak me out. But I think its the immense size of the whale and deep water that freak me out! But I love the beach and going to the ocean, I just have tanxiety about being in the middle of deep water, even the lake. I can jump in but have to jump right back in the boat cuz I dont know whats under my feet.

    And I am really afraid of the dark! and heights.

    And theres another thing I have extreme phobia and fear about but I dont like to tell people cuz they think its silly and they dont get it or understand LOL but its NOT funny to me.

  • I have a really bad fear of flying, which is a bit strange since I've flown quite a few times in my life. I get awful anxiety before flying though, and there was one flight to Europe, years ago, where I completely broke down in hysterics before the plane even took off. It seems that the more flights I go on, the more scared of them I get :-/

    I also hate bugs and have been known to flip out if they get too close to me... ugh

    I honestly can't think of anything that H is afraid of.

  • I am deathly afraid of not being able to breathe. I don't like bugs and might scream like a little girl but it is only because I was surprised.

    H is terrified of roller coasters. I love them and I am trying to get him to try them but he won't.

  • I am afraid of deep water. I tried to go scuba diving on our honeymoon and had a panic attack when I jumped in the ocean. I'm also not a fan of snakes or heights, especially when see-through stairs are involved!

    I'm not sure if H is afraid of anything. Probably just bad things happening to his family. His sister's a social worker and was working with some abusive kids and got hurt one day. H got so upset, it was one of the few times I've seen him cry.

  • Don't laugh, Balloons.  They smell bad, chase you, pop and scare the beejeepers out of you.  And they are made of latex, to which I am very allergic.

    Driving in the bad weather (mainly because of the other morons out there)

     H is terrified of clowns.  He had a traumatizing circus experience when he was little.

    I'll say my weird fear thing, so maybe you can, too - people think it's really, really strange!

    I have a fear of heights, which is pretty normal apparently =]

    I don't mind snakes, bugs, rats, and most vermin people hate.  Seriously, I used to work as a lifeguard in the summer and bees were always attracted to my sun lotion - there'd be times when I'd have 3-4 bees crawling on me at once, no big deal.  (As long as you don't move around a lot they don't hurt you).  But since I've been a little girl, I've had an extreme aversion to butterflies.  To me, they are nothing but giant cockroaches with huge, icky wings.  I'd have bees crawling all over me....but if a butterfly came flying anywhere near my lifeguard stand, I'd jump off it in a heartbeat in a panic.

    To give you an idea - when I was a little girl, I had a set of sheets that had a pattern that sporadically had butterflies on it.  When my mother would have this set of sheets on my bed, I would take my (hardcover) children's books and use them to cover up all the butterflies.  I would then go to sleep laying on top of said books.  Yeah, I'd rather sleep on top of a bunch of hardcover books than let my body touch a sheet with butterflies on it!

    See if you can beat that, invane =]

    This picture was taken this fall on a hike.  Needless to say the butterflies were already gone or otherwise you wouldn't catch me this close to this sign.  My MOH thought about having her wedding in a butterfly garden, but realized that I was a BM and decided against it...

    H: Bees. He's such a baby around them. I love it.

    I was picturing something much, much weirder than aliens...after that intro, I have to say I'm a bit disappointed because that seems relatively normal =]
