sleuth..thanks for the hugs, hes actually doing really well right now...transferred to a local hospital, and can have visitors everyday, hes talking a bit now, but gets tired very fast...i just can't imagine being able to see everyone and not be able to say anything or to reach out or anything..some scary stuff
anyway, wasnt there another thread like this..about fears?? i only remember because ja4jl mentioned spiders, which i absolutely HATE, and i think most of the gossiprockers said spiders also...them and those damn million legger things. Another one of my biggest fears is hitting a dog with my car...or any animal for that matter, but i always think if it happened i dont know how id get over it
I am so sorry about your friend, silver. That has to be so very scary for him, and for you. It reminds me of a horrific incident that occured in my area last year...actually it made national headlines so I am sure you all know about it. A van full of college kids was hit by a semi and only a few survived. Two of the young women's identities were switched by the coroner (they were pretty banged up so maybe this isn't THAT much of a stretch)--one survived, one didn't. So the survivor was in the hospital for quite a long time...surrounded by the other woman's family. She began to regain consciousness but was in a semi-coma..couldn't communicate. It took a while for her to be able to get the point across..."I am not who you think I am!!!!" I cannot imagine the horror, on so many fronts, of this story.

omg, i do remember that story...how horrible for those families. Matt, my friend, is so very lucky...he hit a log on his atv, and the log flipped up, and a stick went into his throat. We witnessed the entire thing. I never EVER want to see something like it again,it was straight out of one of those medical miracle shows. His voice box was moved 3 inches from where it should have been, they actually were not sure if he would be able to talk or eat ever again. He is doing really great, i work for the radiology billing at the hospital...so i can sneak a peek at all his care trends and such, and his pain level today is a 4/10...which is great!! they are only giving him tylenol and a percocet at night to help him sleep. Im going to see him as soon as im done here at work, and im sure he will be excited, as soon as anyone comes in the room he motions for his piece to be put in so he can talk (it covers the hole in the trach so he can talk)he did burst into tears last night while we were all there and just kept saying he didnt want to be there and wanted to go home...and of course then we all started crying..we had seen him last friday and between then and now he looks 200% better
But I always think that for every real feeling there is a good reward (or return, I don't know how you say) and that is why I feel like telling you that he's going to be fine, and you'll have him back!!!

I fear spiders SO much. Even thinking about them I have to check above me in case a big one is about to fall onto my head.... and I don't think about how crazy that is!!!!!
I am so scared of spiders that I gave my copy of Arachnophobia away (well, to borrow, I like the banter in it). And before you ask, I got it for Christmas '05.
I also think they are at their scariest when they have sex. It's like a spider-waltz. *shudder* I'm sure they'd die of fright if they saw themselves in a mirror.
I'm also afraid of outer-space, that is... well... I have a fear that one day the earth will stop spinning and we'll all fly off into space and that frickin' gives me nightmares even though we wouldn't even know if it happened coz we'd die instantly.
I am also scared of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, of which is one of my fave films. The raptors have frequented nightmares quite a few times, and even during the day sometimes I just imagine where I would hide if a few came popping out of the nearby shrubs. Argh!
Ghosts are also a big fear. And death, because... well... who knows what happens to us. Anybody who says they aren't afraid of death is either completely insane, or has a tumour blocking their 'fear' function.
The video didn't scare me at all. I've seen far creepier stuff pertaining to the "supernatural" live and in colors in this lifetime.
I think Victoria Beckham's rock-hard pointy melons are scarier.
Yeah that video was gay. Any Exorcism in real life just makes me roll my eyes, even if it happened in front of me I'd be the same. Unless their eyes changed colour and their voices dropped like 25%.
My biggest fear is if one of my kids were to die(before me). I am terrified thinking about it, and I don't know if I would be able to cope if it happened. That probabley explains why I am over protective.
My goal is to be happy with my life.
It think it is a genuine fear, it shows you care. Even if moms always have to control their overprotectiveness or they risk to suffocate their children through the years.

^ do you mean all kinds of balloons? do you remember when you started fearing them?
i have had a phobia of insects/molluscs for most of my life. i can't even look at pictures of them or i'll hyperventilate and have a panic attack. when i was in high school i had to drop biology because there was a unit on worms and i just couldn't deal with it at all. my parents tried to get me to see a therapist but i knew they would try to cure me by showing me progressively scarier pics and conditioning me to stop being afraid. i couldn't accept that kind of cure. i was genuinely convinced i would die of a heart attack before it was over.
these days i am still afraid, but it's not as bad as before because i have started to accept some insects/molluscs. i can look at squids and bees and a couple of other things. in general, i still hate them though. i tell all my friends that if they ever purposefully tried to show me a bug or mollusc the friendship would be over forever no matter how much they apologized afterwards. i would consider it an attempted murder.
Okay, I lasted 5 seconds, but I had the volume off, too!
I have a total, complete, absolute fear of having my arms and legs falling asleep and never waking back up. Sometimes if I sleep funny and my hand or foot falls asleep, I freak out and go into hysterics thinking that the numbness will never go away. If I'm in one position for too long, I have to get up and change positions because I am afraid of it falling asleep.
I, too, am terrified of dying, or having one of children die.
