I'm not really afraid of a lot of things, but I guess if I had to pinpoint it, my biggest fear is a fear of failure. Can't really explain it, I'm just very afraid of not amounting to anything in life like a lot of my family did.

phobias/fears i guess a few.
making a complete fool of myself in front of people.
the dark.
the water.
empty buildings.
meeting people.
putting my hand in water that isn't clear.
catching a spider in a glass.
driving........stupid because i have a license.
real people statues.
changing a lightbulb.
stairs with gaps,only walking down them.
being chased up the stairs.
drunk people
looking over cliffs
wonder why i don't go out much.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

My biggest fear is drains. All drains, kitchen sink, bath tub, bathroom sink, the drains on floors in basements and such. *shudder*
I do not think something is going to climb out to get me I just hate being near drains. Because of this, I cannot take baths...too close. If something falls into the drain I just leave it there. I also stare at it obsessively when I take a shower. And when anyone else touches one it really creeps me out.

Ohh I forgot about Santa, Easter bunny, and mascots. SummerOJ reminded me of that one. I was told when I was 7 months old I screamed when they put me on Santa's lap. And I've always been freaked out by anything that is "lifesized" that I think should only be in story books or on TV. It was awful at Relay for Life this year because they had the Chick-fil-a tent next to my tent with the cow. I flipped out the whole night!

I have a phobia of sharp things near my eyes. I hate looking directly at the spike of a skewer if it is near my eyes.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

Oh! One more! I'm afraid of BIG leaves. Like, elephant ears and such.

I used to be afraid of all leaves, but now it's only the big ones.

Some bugs. Millipedes mostly. I can't even get near them. Water bugs too. One night not so long ago a millipede came out from under my dog crate and ran under our bed. While it was hoofing it, my husband was yelling.... Step on it! Get it! Get it!... but I didn't have shoes on and I was paralyzed. I sat in the middle of the bed for a while like a big baby. I eventually ended up sleeping on the couch because I kept thinking it would come crawl on me under the blanket.

I actually have a basis for that. I can't tell you the amount of times in my life I've thought, that bug won't get me, and it's ended up in my hair or under my blankets, crawling up my leg. When I was younger I had a 17 year locust fly into my very thick, very curly hair and get stuck. I absolutely FREAKED out. This past summer I had stink bugs drop into my hair from the sliding glass door frame on TWO DIFFERENT trips through the door. Another time in our apartment a water bug came out of nowhere, zoomed across the carpet and ran right under my legs while I was sitting indian style on the floor.

So ... just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're NOT out to get me.
