Post your fear (s) / phobia (s) here! I'll go first.
- I'm deathly afraid of these creatures... I mean, I do think they're beautiful, and depending on how comfortable I feel with one, I MIGHT pet one.. but it has to have a barrier between me and itself (a fence). When I was little, my mom wanted me to go horseback riding on a really tall Arabian...and of course, I fell off (I was like, 6).
The second thing that really made me fear horses is when I was younger (14) my mom and I rented a house from someone who had two horses on the property (mother and son). They were kept in absolutely horrid conditions...burs in their tails, always muddy stables, covered in mud and/or feces, and not fond of human touch. I wanted to call authorities, but my mom wouldn't let me in fear of being kicked out (we were poor, so getting a house, regardless of quality, was a big thing). One day, I stepped outside, and heard a loud snort. Apparently, the stallion got out of the "stable".
The dogs on the property were surrounding it, thinking it was a game or something, and it began to buck. It kicked a dog directly in the face and killed it. My mom ran outside and stopped next to me and the horse saw us, and charged. My mom, knowing what to do with horses, stood there and didn't turn her back and made herself "look bigger". It did NOT turn around or stop. The only thing that made it steer away from us was the landlord driving down the gravel driveway to check on his business, which was also on the property. If the horse didn't get distracted, he would have hit us both.
2. The Dark / Being Alone
- My mom introduced me to horror games at age 7 (Resident Evil Director's Cut) and held my hands on the controller and forced me to play and beat the game. I did...and since then, my interest in these games skyrocketed, even though I'm a huge sissy and look away during parts I believe would be scary. So, DOOM came out...and I decided to play it in the dark. By myself. Bad idea, seeing that on the box it came in there was a huge warning saying not to play it alone and in the dark... =P. Also, the Fatal Frame games didn't help either...so whenever I'm alone or when it's really dark, I feel like there's something THERE
...thank you video games!! xD
