My only true phobia is hospitals. I can't even drive past one without my heart rate increasing. The last time I had my blood pressure taken in a hospital it was 220/180 and I was hysterical (bought flowers for nurses who had to put up with me lol) I am working on this as obviously there will be a time I need to enter one.

Other than that, I dislike planes and cockroaches make my skin crawl

I had terrifying dreams that I was surfing and all of a sudden I was drug down by a shark. This went on for about a month, but I still have those dreams sometimes. If I ever live next to the ocean, I refuse to go into the water. I can watch videos of them, and will be terrified-even pictures make me scared. It's an awful fear.
Hahahaha ok probably a bad time to tell you that my partner and I have been to go cage diving with great white sharks in January next year We have some MASSIVE great whites in the Southern Australia waters and have had quite a few attacks on surfers.
I can't wait!!!!!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I'm so excited Sorrel, they're such increadible creatures it will be an absolute honour and life changing experience to be sitting in the water right next to them.
They've got a massive one in the waters that we'll be diving off - last measurement had her at nearly 8m long :O :O

The Dark....I can't see into the distance and then I hear noises (pretty sure the noises are in my head lol) and FLIP out! I have tried walking out away from the house where my safety feeling ended....ya didn't last long. HATE the dark...HATE having to go outside and get something outside in the dark. I stand at the door and think about my plan to run out and grab whatever it is as fast as I can WITHOUT falling down lol. I am ok when I am not alone outside but....I just HATE it when I alone lol. Achluophobia lol!

Also TERRIFIED of spiders...ANY size I will FREAK THE HECK OUT. My sister is the same way...you would SWEAR somebody is trying to kill me as bad as I freak out.

I am OK with heights....but get me up on the Space Needle oh boy do I have so terrible anxiety lol.

Porcelien dolls...OMG my nana has those and I swear their eyes are following me, and their expressions change as well lol!

I also don't like crowded places...like shopping malls in the holiday months when they are PACKED, or Wal-Mart on a busy day...any large crowd of people I just don't like it. I have to carry my inhaler because I have had panic attacks. I get terrible anxiety, go pale, get clammy, heart rate sky rockets...

That is pretty much my fears lol.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

Talk about the dark. I will be 30 soon and just now have gotten over that fear. I think it stems from a babysitter I had when I was younger who would make me sleep in the floor and would tell me bugs were going to eat me, and shut me in the closet and tell me Jason and Freddy stories.

Crowds, don't get me started. I tried to grocery shop at Walmart the other day and there were so many people there I dropped my cart and left. I started to get panicky and thought I was having a heart attack!

Ohhh....did I mention thunder and lightening???
They fascinate me to a high degree, but when they come in the middle of the night I'm diving for the covers. I don't know what scares me the most...either way I find it kind of wild.

Same here!!! I grew up on Vancouver Island, so never really had any crazy Thunder & Lightening storms... this summer in Fort McMurray was INSANE for thunder storms... all my roommates are from Ontario and used to big storms like that, and I was the wimp hiding under a blanket being laughed at, almost in tears! It was shaking the house -no joke!
