What are your fears?

Whats everyone scared of?

I am petrified of BIRDS! Hate them... all started when I was a little kid at a petting zoo, a peacock scared me. I am the most scared of peacocks for sure.
I'm fine with snakes, bugs, spiders, etc, but put me near a bird I will cry.

Monkeys/apes, anything that flies and has a stinger, heights, and clowns.

Pretty much anything else doesn't bother me.

Wasp. I run screaming like a kid when I see a wasp. Funny thing is I've ne er been stung by one. Secondly, those machines at the eyedoctor that puffs air in your eye. They make me cry when I stick my forhead to it. I just can't do it. I would rather subject myself to the drops and lights to do that test instead.

Spiders, I'd rather than on a lion than a spider. I know it's not logical, but it is what it is.

You need that in order to test for glaucoma, because it's based on eye pressure. It's not pleasant, but necessary. I'd take that 10 times over the drops and dilation, because those actually makes me nauseated and mess with my vertigo.

Can't quote on my phone but yes you do need to either do the " air puff" or else a "blue light" method to check your eye pressure. I'm an optometrist and its vital we know what your eye pressures are. I agree the machine isn't pleasant (I jump as well) but it IS important and nessesary.

Anyway, my big fear is spiders. Ick. Gross.

Water, the lochness monster lives in every lake, river and ocean. Terrified of seaweeds, fish, everything in water.

Pool drains, they kill people, seriously google it.

The dark, scary things live in the dark.

Fire, terrified my house will always burn.

I watched way to much 20/20 and national geographic as a small child.

Dolls. Not just any dolls. The satanic-looking antique dolls with weird faces whose eyes follow you no matter where you are in the room.

Vintage mannequins are even worse.

I had a few horrible experiences with dolls when I was little. I think that's where it comes from. To this day, I can't turn my back on them and I can never sleep in my grandmother's spare bedroom because the little antichrists line every shelf...

I'm totally cool with bats, snakes, spiders, worms, whatever. The most disturbing Halloween decorations don't phase me, but put an old baby doll near me and I'll lose it.

Ugh.
