Pathological fear of thunderstorms

I am TERRIFIED of thunderstorms. Does that make me weird? TT_TT

Nope, I don't like them either. It's the feel of the air it's just unsettling! Makes me want to do what my dog used to do, go crawl under the nearest table and curl up into a ball.

not strange at all, though i'm not afraid of them. i AM scared of amusement park rides that go upside down, though really, you're usually strapped into those better than you are in an airplane.

I have a neighbor who hides in her closet at the first rumble of thunder.

When I was little, very little, I used to be terrified by storms, not because of the thunder, or lightning, but because there was this tree outside my bedroom window, a big old silver maple. I was afraid it would be struck by lightning or be blown over in a nightly gust of wind and come crashing down into my room. Because of this, I would go and sleep in my parents bed whenever a storm blew through.

Then one day, I woke up after a particularly fierce storm and a huge old branch from that maple, about 15-20 feel long, had been broken off by the wind and was laying on the front lawn. After that, I wasn't ever really afraid anymore.

nope its not weird. I used to be afraid of them when I was little but my dad taught me how to tell how many miles away the lightning strikes are. After the flash you count "one mississippi, two mississippi, three...." depending on how many mississippi's you get determines how many miles away that it. From there my fear changed into fascination and now I'm studying to be a meteorologist lol.

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

**shudders** I do not like clowns at all... they scare the crap out of me. My friends used to trick me into looking at the demented pictures of clowns that are literally MADE to scare people.

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!
