    Irrational Fear/Hate

    Since my first attempt is apparently illegal, let's try again.

    What are things that you irrationally hate/fear?

    My biggest one is small spaces.......so I suppose that means I'm somewhat claustrophobic. When I was about 8, we were playing hide and seek in my house, and I had a really, really good hiding spot. The empty hope chest. If you don't know what those are, it's like hiding in a casket. Bad idea.
    So I climb in, and smartly keep my fingers between the lid so it can't close on me.........and then my nose itches.

    *click*

    instant panic. Screaming, crying, absolutely freaking out. It felt like forever, but probably within in 20 seconds, my brother opens it up because the whole damn house could hear me.

    Ever since then, I just get panicky at feeling "trapped". DH found out the hard way that it might be funny to jump on me when I'm in bed, but I instantly freak out if my arms can't move because of the covers. Watching shows where someone gets buried alive? Nope!


    that's my big one, but others would be house centipedes, cockroaches, and the "creep" face.

    The edging on blankets. Makes my skin crawl. Don't even get me started on the sound of somebody shuffling around in a snowmobile suit. Just typing that made me shudder. Don't know why, but I've been that way since I was little.

    I'm curious about the blanket thing - any blankets or the fleece ones with the frayed edging? The snowsuit reminds me of another big one - the feeling of filing your nails. Ughhhh!

    Re: Irrational Fear/Hate

    I have a fear of speaking... When I'm being graded. If I know no one is judging me on how well I am speaking, I have no problem at all. But as soon as someone starts marking down how well I'm doing, my brain shuts down and I start shaking...

    Also, I have a fear of deep water. But not enough to keep me from swimming in large lakes. I swam in the ocean once on vacation, but never far out enough to where I couldn't touch.
