    Unhappy Irrational fears of the rationale.

    Title says it all.

    Heights.
    Spiders.
    Ok ok fine. And the dark.

    In order from worst to least. Even as an analytical person, no matter what i tell myself. Still feel my stomach drop.

    Edit: Sorry if this has already been posted before.

    For some reason, centipedes/millipedes. YOU DON'T NEED THAT MANY LEGS. Instant death to those things.

    Low-flying birds [I always duck]

    Being paralyzed

    That's about it.

    Seagulls, hospitals, and bees stinging me. There is just something about being able to painfully insert your butt into another person that just freaks me out to no end.

    Marriage could be another one, but I consider that to be more of a rational fear...maybe hospitals too, but the reason why I'm afraid of them isn't rational I think.

    Heights...so scared of them. I refuse to look out of the windows at the library.

    Falling down a flight of stairs--not so irrational because I've done it twice. I avoid stairs now.

    Spiders...Dear PTB, please don't let me dream of running into a web tonight. I will sacrifice the spider above the shower in the bathroom so you may grant my prayer.

    Static electricity. Is there any way I can ground myself?

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." -- Frank Herbert

    You ever see the Human Centipede? UGH.

    Insanity.
    Heights.
    Bugs of any sort.
    Hospitals/Doctors. Not so much the doctor him/herself...more of the feeling of people babying me. Ugh. It freaks me out.

    Being deemed incapable in certain contexts,
    Being emotional with people,
    Socialization - to some extent,
    Heights,
    Really dirty things like toilet water,
    Public speaking,
    Girls,
    Girls,
    Girls,

    Hmmmmm... That's all I can think of right now.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    As a kid: lighting matches (because I had been told that my grandpa had once been badly burned by accidentaly lighting an entire matchbox - wrong side of the box left open!)

    today: (spiral) staircases without handrails and maggots (well, not really fear but deep seated exaggerated disgust)



    Never understood fear of spiders, snakes, centipedes etc, cool critters!

    More or less the same, only not the heights & not the dirty things; I curiously have no "physical" fears at all(I'm always the one who brings spiders outside because I don't want that someone hurts them^^), but quite a many social ones. Though, as a kid, I had some "physical ones": I were afraid of sleeping in the dark and, to some extent, heights(but that didn't stopped me from climbing up every tree I saw, so it couldn't be that strong). The most irritating fear of me is that everything other people say or show to me is faked, just to "not hurt my feelings", or to manipulate me etc. (yeah I know I'm paranoid) To be honest, it's a really stupid fear.^^
    They say I only think in form of crunching numbers.....
