Default Fears

Watching "Extreme animal phobia" and wondering if anyone of you has a phobia that really is what would be classed as extreme - and not a mere dislike.

Mine would be heights, I can go up a scaffold or a ladder or whatever but when it comes to super high things like bridges - it's the whole hyperventilating thing.

Thats about the only thing for me.

Heights - hate going up ladders. It is not the height I dislike, its the falling.

Ya it was really brought home to me ladt year in Mexico when hubby and I went on an 'adventure' day trip thing. We did zip lining and I thought before we got there "well how bad can it be?" the first few were a breeze but the last one I totally froze at the top, nearly threw up, held the line up for about 15 mins because I froze and wouldn't move. I finally managed to go down but only because there was no other way down, but no way on this planet would I EVER do that again. EVER.

I remember the guy who attached the harness saying to me "do you want me to just push you off, it might be easier" I said to him "Do you want me to smack you in the face? that would be easier for me?"

Default Re: Fears

Certain heights combined with windy conditions. I can go up on a ski lift, parasail, but can't be close to the edge of a significant drop. If it is really windy then I will just freeze and may have to hit the deck.

The only violence I would have towards the inhaled insect would be to cough it out. Can't promise I wouldn't step on it afterward. Guess i'm a bad candidate.

I have a mild phobia of certain types of bridges and also roads very close to sheer mountain drops.

The bridges one is a bit odd as its very bridge dependant.

I am a wuss - but don't see it coming?!

I have hyperventilated (and fainted once) - once at the dentist, once when getting contact lenses for the first time, and once when getting a spinal block for a C-section. Pathetic, embarassing. And yet, I'm quite OK with other medical stuff - so it's hard to predict.

Oh, and snakes creep me out like nothing else. My back shivers and goes to water just envisioning one to write this. There is something wholely disgusting and unnatural about a creature that can dislocate its jaw to eat. Brrrrrrrrrrr.
