What is something you're terrified of?

Report as

A total and permanent schizophrenic breakdown or crack up. Sometimes I think I'm dancing on the edge of some psychological abyss. But if it happens, I suppose I have no one to blame but myself. Speaking metaphorically, I can smell and hear what is beyond that "edge'' but I dare not take a look to SEE it, for when I do that is when I'll stumble and fall or "something" will grab me and pull me over. Not pleasant, but the siren songs keep me dancing. However some of the stuff floating around in my head, could give me ideas for novels or screenplays that could conceivably rival anything by Stephen King or that other author "who shall not be named".

Here is another pleasant little thought: Just because your paranoid, does not mean it isn't happening, hasn't happened, or WON'T happen. Sweet dreams.

Romney is not Bush and Obama has made things worse than Bush did. Romney has experience in getting companies out of debt and this country is in some major debt because of both Bush and mainly Obama.

No IG, it's not a punch in the face, and no, I'd never, ever lay a finger on you, if we ever met in person. It was a joke, sorry. Here's where I think we should just part ways and never speak to each other ever again. We obviously don't understand each other, nor do we get along. So, have a nice life.

clowns are creepy, especially clown dolls. My grandmother's best friend had this HEAD of Jesus, though, and its glassy gaze would follow you around the room. It was insanely creepy. I stayed over one night when I was a kid and was stuck in THAT room. I'm not sure I slept.

To both AuthorGirl and Science guy: Take a gander at the original Poltergeist movie and check out that toy clown that plays a bit part in that flick. (Makes "Chucky" pretty laughable by comparison) Sweet dreams.

Oooh, plane crash! Forgot about that tasty little fear! Can you just imagine the sheer horror that went through people's minds on 911 just minutes prior to their eventual demise? Lovely! Lets not forget too the hair raising sensations a little turbulence can play when travelling by air, and the pilots "reasurring'' voice coming over the intercom telling the rest of us not to worry"

Also, don't forget the Challenger explosion. Tapes show they might have been alive all the way down. Eww!

Total economic collapse

Helpful (2) Fun Thanks for voting Comments (1)
Report as
Interesting fear, because normally I don't fear such a thing, but sometimes I do fear such a thing might be INTENTIONALLY brought about by people in high(er) places, so such activtiy would further fufill some nefarious plot or something either to enslave the rest of us peons or perhaps to make themselves so disgustingly rich that we truly do live in a plutocracy. Of course it could be argued we have always lived in such an enviroment. If economics is truly driven by an "invisible hand" and we do face total collapse, the good news is we would have nowhere to go but up.

Interesting fear. I say that because even though I'm not too fond of their appearance, the sounds they make in the summer have filled me with something I dare say is akin to happiness. (Unfortunately there are no cicadas here in California)
Report as
their blind they dont see where their going , and in school kids knew i was scared of them so they threw them on me put them down my shirt etc so now im scared for life :/
Report as
To TS: Yeah, unfortunately, some traumas early in life either do not go away or take years or even decades to overcome. Too bad you can't read about my fear of these demonic slugs that I have seen at my home or in the neighborhood where I live. No one has ever put one down my shirt, and I tried to "make friends" with them, but just the appearance of these things really disturb me. I don't even like killing them! I mention these slugs because there is nothing to be ashamed of being afraid of "innocent" creatures.
