A fear of Cancer, I do silly things to keep parts of my body out of the sunlight, I wore my bag across the back of my head to protect my neck, I kept my arms in the air (holding into the mirror in the car) to avoid the chance of UV Rays touching them in the car, I wish cancer would just go away. :(
I fear sexual assault, just like all women and girls, and that prevents me from walking at night, and going places by myself at night. When I lived in a big city, I bought a dog leash and borrowed neighbours' dogs in order to go for a walk in the evening. Walking home from work in the dark, after 4:00 p.m. in winter, was so awful. I listened for every male step on the sidewalk behind me, and I hurried. I planned places to step into for safety in case one seemed to be following me. I am not paranoid and I am not a weak woman: this is how it is for half the population. Men usually don't get this unless someone close to them has had an awful experience.
