Do you ever find yourself afraid of something and then laugh at how scared you were over it?<br><br>
This A.M someone must have used a lot of toilet paper and it didn't go down all the way because after I used the restroom and flushed the bowl started to rise to high with water. I started turning off the water from below and started praying out loud " Oh God please don t let it flood!" It didn't but I have had that happen in public restrooms too and I am so SCARED. My heart starts pounding and I freak out a little too much. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">:<br><br>
There is a huge black bee that comes to our kitchen window in the early morning and it tries to go through the glass. I know it can't get me but my heart pounds and I think "I am such a sissy" !<br><br>
If the lights go out when I am in the restroom during a storm I act all calm but my heart is pounding and I get all weird and feel like running out of the house. I don't of course and I tell the kids "Its ok don't be scared" but I am scared silly.

When the power goes out and the smoke detector beeps... I'll go into full panic attack. I don't now why I can't handle smoke detectors making any kind of noise. Or in the middle of the night and the dog starts barking and won't stop. I freak out thinking someone it is out side, but chances are she is barking at an animal.<br>
And uncovered widows at night. I can't see out but people can see in. I've watched way too many movies.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I'm afraid of "air in a can", that pressurized air you use to clean out computer keyboards and electronic stuff. I know it's hardly different from any other aerosol style can, and I can't really explain my fear <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I'm afraid of escalators <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: I've had totaly panic attacks trying to ride one before. Not pretty. And revolving doors like they have in hotels and some office buildings. I'd <i>never</i> make it as a big city dweller, as much as I'd like to pretend I could <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

When I worked at a movie theater we had giant cockroaches... the one with wings! They would dive bomb you too. I remember a few to many times being upstairs with a poster tube and practicing my batting. Some of the folks there would joke about them being so big they wore watches and Reebok's.

Actually, the toilet thing scares me too. I kind of shuffle around in a frenzy, but don't do anything for about a minute until it registers... DUH, turn off the water!<br><br>
I am scared of spiders, centi/millipedes and silverfish... basically bugs that have too many legs, lol. I also get paranoid that we forgot to shut the garage door after I've already gone to bed.

I hear that! I live out in the country and have always been afraid that some *evil creature* would be looking into my windows <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> WTH is THAT all about?<br><br>
I'm also afraid of heights. I do ok on rollercoasters but the ferris wheel? Not pretty. DH got me on the Colossus at Six Flags last summer with him and DS--I screamed obscenities the entire time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: The teenagers in the car (is that what they're called?) next to us had a field day with that.<br><br>
Escalators scare me because I'm afraid of my fee getting caught.<br><br>
Outhouses/portapotties are scary because I'm afraid of falling in the hole.

Bees/Hornets/Wasps... I hate them all. We have a bright orange stroller and it seems to attract them all. When they land on it I don't know what to do! Save my children? But how?! haha.

I'm scared to death of Barney the Dinosaur. Seriously. I will freak out and cry if I see him. My ex BILs had a field day with that one when I first started dating their brother. They were little kids with Barney dolls, and they used to throw 'em down the stairs, and I'd scream and have tears running down my face, and I'd be all a mess.<br><br>
It all stemps from my 15th birthday party, with a mentally ill mother... before that it was just a joke that I hated Barney. Now I'm scared of that vile thing.

I'm afraid of spiders, bees, wasps, yellow jackets, anything that flies and has a stinger. Interestingly enough I have never been stung by anything in my whole life. I'm also afraid of passing semi trucks on the freeway and clench my hands together and think of the worst case scenario when DH is driving and passes one. Thoughts like "Oh my God this could happen and we'd fall off the bridge into the water and die a horrible death!" Passing tanker trucks is worse because who knows what its carrying. Die in a fiery explosion....not the way I wanna go.

Starr, I am so sorry, but this has me in tears I am laughing so hard! Were you and dh just going out then?<br><br>
clowns<br>
not so much heights but the hitting of the ground if I fell from a height<br>
stairs that have an open rise (like at many apartment complexes)<br>
baby dolls that are supposed to resemble babies<br>
the dark<br>
bugs crawling inside of me and making a nest (I think this is more of a fear/gross out than straight up fear)
