does anyone have any
- being told I smell (I suffer badly with incontinence, and wouldn’t want people to notice and tell me) as I feel I do all I can to keep clean
heights (wouldn’t get on a roler coaster, climb a hill, go on the london eye etc)
lifts (because they are too small)
running out of something I need (food, water, etc)
death (to an extent)

I know it’s odd, but I don’t have any. Like you, Emily, I do dislike large crowds, but I’m not afraid of them.August 20, 2020 at 6:55 am #214791
Heights mainly. I do have momentary fears of other things but tend to overcome them quickly.August 20, 2020 at 7:06 am #214798
Nothing really.. I have a good healthy respect for many things including heights but Im not afraid or phobic about anything..
I even manage my worst fear..the dentist by means of meditation ..August 20, 2020 at 8:29 am #214820

I had to go last month.. I had an infection and needed root canal work.. two visits each lasting an hour..No pain relief but I was fine and my tooth is as good as new.
Mind you I must say I have a dentist who is super good wastes no time and no chitty chatty he just gets in and gets the job done.August 21, 2020 at 7:36 am #214867
It won’t happen, but my worst fear is being faced by a T-Rex. That Tyrannosaurus-rex is my worst nightmare. I am freaked out completely by Jurassic Park.
My other fear is the plane dropping out of the sky. Again – it won’t happen – but that is what I fear. It’s odd because I have been flying my whole life. Yet I still imagine the airplane dropping.August 21, 2020 at 8:06 am #214875

Well as you say you know the T-Rex wont happen the plane is a logical fear though..
After all you have no control and it is illogical that a thing weighing as much as a plane does can actually get airborne and stay there. But on the other hand you know the science that makes it possible and that flying is safer than driving a car!
I understand your fears better than those of people who are phobic about dandilions but no other flower or hair clips or rainbows that just has no logic …August 22, 2020 at 12:07 pm #214941

People wearing masks is making things a bit strange now as, instead of just glancing, we now look more to read someones eyes to sum them up. In a way it’s more invasive.September 23, 2020 at 12:39 pm #216654

I am not keen on earwigs since being nipped by one when I was little. It was on the sheets on my brother’s pram and he is only 4 years younger than me but I still have a vivid memory and could take you to exactly the place so it shows how much it impacted on my mind. I am not afraid of them though.September 26, 2020 at 10:48 am #216793
I don’t fear spiders, though: weird but true. I wouldn’t feel comfortable if there were a large spider in the room: but I wouldn’t panic or get too scared. I’d put him/her into a bug catcher and then release him/her.
This is because spiders have a right to be here: on this planet. AND they do good for the insect population. I NEVER kill any spider.September 26, 2020 at 11:57 am #216795
I’m not afraid of spiders either
when someone asks me for an interesting fact about me, it’s what I say: I’m not scared of spiders.
always thought it a unique fact about meSeptember 27, 2020 at 6:49 am #216835
We tend to leave them to get on in our house. It’s just the webs which are irritating. They can keep lots of the other pests down. The irritating one was a big one in the bedroom which I heard walking across the ceiling above me, then it fell on me and I felt it through the blankets. I am sorry to say that it got evicted, although maybe came into the house again later. They know where it is comfy lol
