Day 14: Your Phobias

  • Birds: They can pluck out your eyes and scratch you and bite you. And one time I was chased by a goose. That didn't help at all.
  • Big fish: You know in "Finding Nemo" when Dory and Marlin get swallowed by the whale? Well, I'm scared that could happen to me. And yes, I'm fully aware how irrational this fear is.
  • Getting Alzheimer's: This is probably the most rational of my fears. I'm terrified of losing my memory and having my life end not having a clue what's going on around me. It sounds absolutely miserable. My great-grandmother died of the disease, so I know how bad it can be. That's why I make a huge effort to document my life.
  • Guns: Whenever I see them on television, in a picture, in person, or anywhere I get really nervous and on edge. But I do want to own a gun now that I'm moving into my own apartment. I'm hoping with some training and experience in gun control I'll be able to get over this fear.
  • Heights: They just scare me, and I don't really know why. My mom is terrified of heights, so I think I get it from her.
  • The dark: I've had a few not so great experiences with the dark. I can't be in a completely dark area. I will have a heart attack, I swear.
