Y'ALL. I'm over here (seriously) having a panic attack because I just saw a tarantula on TV. I have the BIGGEST FEAR OF SPIDERS. THE BIGGEST. EVER. I JUST CANNOT DEAL WITH THEM IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM!

WHAT ARE YOUR FEARS (IF ANY?!)

*SORRY FOR THE CAPS BUT I CANT CONTROL IT AT THIS POINT*

Clowns. Clowns. Clowns.

I'm a big time coulrophibic. I blame the movie IT, which I saw at age 8. To this day, I cannot go to a circus or a carnival. The last time I went to one, a clown snuck up behind me and scared me so bad that I screamed like a girl and ran a mile in the opposite direction. Naturally, my friends laughed their asses off.

I second clowns- I can't deal with them

I also have a fear of dogs (even though people always want to tell me how irrational it is). When I was three, I gotten bitten on the face really close to my eye by my nanny's dog and they had to give me stitches that went from the corner of eye almost to my ear (I still have a scar you can see if you get close enough). Like six months later, I'm outside at my aunt's house and her neighbour's huge dog gets loose and runs onto my aunt's lawn where I am. I start screaming hysterically and try to run away and the dog- I guess thinking I want to play- chases after me and knocks me over face first on the driveway and the dog is like standing over me licking me. My family comes outside and they have to literally pick the dog off me and I've got a gash all down my face, a cut on my arm that I had to get stitches for, and a busted lip. I was so hysterical they had to give me a sedative and keep me in hospital for two days till I calmed down. These are are literally two of my earliest memories and ever since then, I can't deal with dogs. I actively go out of my way to avoid them at all costs.

Heights.

Always disliked them but able to handle to some degree in closed environments. But when I had a full on panic attack in the middle of a concert in 2005, while up on a mezzanine, I knew it had gotten worse. Couple it with wide open space and it gets worse, like I won't go out on the open deck of a ship. My co-worker and I have the opposite phobias--she fears enclosed places, must have aisle seating, being stuck in a train in the tunnel would be her worst nightmare. Me...I don't like aisle seating, travelling over bridges, being in the middle of a large body of water, my worst nightmare would be that tram accident we had in NYC some years back where the 2 cars were just suspended up in the air for hours.

Spiders all the way. I can't even bring myself to kill them. I'm worried that they'll escape and come back to haunt me.

The absoulte worst is when spiders dissapear.

I actually like spiders and don't kill them because spiders kill other bugs. They are useful to have around.

Mine is crowds. I'm a social person but if there are too many people in a small space I get panicky.

Ewwww, I'd rather be over run by bugs than have one spider in my house. I remember reading something some time ago that the average person ends up swallowing 7 spiders in their lifetime. GAG!

SNAKES. I literally have the BIGGEST fear of snakes that sometimes I actually have nightmares about them, as a grown ass man. And when I get the nightmares I wake up in the middle of the night, have to take a cold shower and then strip the bed down and remake it to make sure there are no snakes in it.

It's crazy.

I also have a fear of unsecured heights. I'm fine with airplanes, roller coasters (love 'em!), etc. but if you put me on a platform or balcony or ANYTHING up high that doesn't have a railing or enclosure, I'm DONE.

Airplanes....getting on one...never have

Elevators...although I do take them but do fear them

I realize they are completely harmless... but these things STILL totally creep me out:

And one day when I got out of my truck, I looked down and saw a GIANT wolf spider about 3 inches across right on the door panel next to where my leg was. I got the shovel out of the back and smacked it!

    • Please accept my apologies. Sometimes i get a bit loopy. The bad experiences i've had on here. Have done a real number on me. Thank you for the info.
    • I hope you buckle up and take Dramamine.  
    • Oh, I know. It's why I was be so adamant about anything on the Ericole roller coaster. 
    • Exactly!! No matter what actor is playing him, Nikolas has been sitting on the fence between  light and dark. And in the last few years he has been going dark, darker, darkest. That writing has definitely been on the wall. I thought it was very telling that Laura made a comment about her time on Cassandine Island that put that in perspective.   That was a great scene and Maura played that line to the hilt.    That is something I forgot to mention. The fact that while I too do not want Esme to be a heroine, I have to admit the actress is winning me over to her current state...the elusive tabula rasa. The audience is aware of who she is and what she has done, but in her current state, she has a remorse and common sense factor to her that does make her compiling in a way that Esme as vixen did not. One almost (note on ALMOST) do not want her to remember. That said...given SOD's February Sweeps info, it looked like she might be getting aimed at someone she should be aimed at, continuing to prove she should have never came out of that particular bubble of story. Even if the result if true, is typical of her current arc.
