    I'm afraid of falling. Not afraid of heights, it's the falling that gets me even if I'm on a line. I've done a high adventure course a few times, and the one obstacle that gets me is falling from a platform while clipped into a rope. The rope has slack so you freefall about 15 to 20 feet and then the rope tightens and swings you into a cargo net. I scream like a baby every time.

    Oh boy...where do I start...My biggest one is dying...dealing with anxiety/panic attacks sometimes it feels like I'm going to die or I'm dying, depending on the severity of the attack/thoughts/stress level/etc...but I'll bolt down a 1/4 mile strip in 9.1 seconds at over 150 mph where A LOT of things can go wrong...yet it makes me feel free...

    Sharks.
    I love the ocean and I think sharks are the coolest creatures on earth. But to be out in the ocean just being circled by fuck knows how many of them before they move in for the kill.... :eek: Gives me goosebumps just thinking about them. Lol

    Amazon has roaches now...cool. That during the next fight I might actually kill someone before I stop. When adrenaline is running high during a game and I get into a scrap, they almost always have to pull me off still swinging. Aside from that, nothing I can think of. Being a contractor, heights don't faze me, haven't found anything that will accelerate fast enough, I've hit 174 on a motorcycle and was pushing for more, dove off of boats, done backflips off the high dive, hit almost 50 on skis, car surfed in my younger years, if I'm not a hair from death, I don't feel alive. I was doing JackAss shit before it was cool. Snakes and spiders don't faze me, I've chased bears into the woods to get pics, I love living on the edge.

    Just thought of something, getting fat. I do what I can to avoid it, but I have a fear of getting fat and not being able to do all that I do.

    I'm terrified of marriage (have been for a while), but I'm working through that by not being afraid of my husband. That may not make sense, but it works for me. I am also afraid of movies that have big bugs and/or spiders in them....Aragog et al scared the shit outta me. While I am not afraid of dying, I do not like the idea of dying a horrible death. Certain bridges are scary too, but I do not know why.

    My biggest fear is being alone - all my other fears and anxieties stem from that. Paradoxically I'm always telling people to "leave me alone" or that I need "some personal time."

    Snakes. I hate all kinds of snakes. If a snake comes on a tv show, I can the channel.

    Ah yes, I should have mentioned that one. As of late it's not been uppermost on my mind because I no longer live alone, but right now it's been since Monday am that my husband has been on a work trip, and I'm feeling it big time. It's like I don't know what to do with myself. I can't remember the last time I needed some personal time except for hiking, but even then I don't feel alone because I am communing with nature.

    I remember this one beach trip I went on when I was single. There were several of us renting nearby, and we'd all hang out on the beach during the day, but no one was really hanging out. Each person was zoning by sleeping, listening to music or reading, and there I was trying to get people to really hang out and talk or play some game. They were all relaxing (in my world that is code for lifeless), so I ended up playing volleyball with people down the beach I'd never met before.

    Edit....my heart goes out to anyone who has loved ones overseas serving in the armed forces.
