no. alone is okay. depending on the situation, it could be even better than dying surrounded by loved ones.
no. there's usually some kind of help somewhere. not thrilled with the prospect, but worse things could happen. for example, being without a bathroom for an extended period of time--horrifying!
no. same as above.
losing your job--
again, uncomfortable and sad, but same as above. (maybe diff if I were a parent--but still, there's usually help somewhere, especially if children are involved.) I'd be more afraid of losing my job and being physically unable to start another one, but not physically bad enough off to qualify for any help. Not a pleasant thought.
losing a loved one--
been there, done that. sad, potentially hearbreaking. i don't look forward to the next time. but not terrifying. should be able to
never telling someone you love em before they pass on--
very, very, very sad. but i'm not afraid of it. and who knows--maybe they already know--or will know on the other side. (is there another side? i still don't know about that.)
house catching on fire--
very scary, if i'm inside it! ME being on fire is a lot scarier, though. (burn recovery is way way way way too painful) i don't like the idea of losing house or possesions (incl. art, family photos, old letters, . . . .) but they're only things, after all.
used to terrify me. it's still very scary if trapped into having it happen over and over again (prison, imprisoned by sadistic person, whatever), but mostly now the thought just makes me really, REALLY mad. (especially if he has AIDS--that could be considered murder) The rapist better the h*** watch out for people like me. I, mySELF am so incredibly frightening --(Oooo--and my potentially very vengeful relatives! )
pretty much the same as above. Maybe not as scary, especially by someone who only wants someTHING, and doesn't have any interest in hurting you.
ah yes, other.
fear of heights and claustrophobia of plain old ordinary cramped places do bother me.
but my two biggest fears are probably being tortured/in terrible horrible pain, especially with no end in sight (i'm an absolute wimp about pain. no denying it ), and being suffocated in tight quarters.
If ya wanna see me panic, start inflicting or threatening to inflict severe pain, or stuff me in a sleeping bag headfirst and close up the open end.
Okay, any unscrupulous reading this now know how to get to me So if you're unscrupulous, please stop reading after the first four words at the top.
well one of my fears is losing the use of my hands and eyes. the hands thing is lagit as I have something wrong with my joints, and my eyes have never been the best. but my worst sear is proly that I'll meet someone deside to make a comitment with her and then find someone better suted for me and wish I wated. as I would not want to hurt anyone, it's proly what's keeping me single.
I just dealt with a friend committing suicide and I really wished I could've told him I loved him. So now I give hugs to all my friends a lot because its important to show loved ones how much you care.
Hmm.. well, I have already been through half that list, and the rest doesn't really scare me..
I would have to say my number one fear right now is something bad happening to my children and not being able to help them...
Second would probably losing my memory.. I would have to not remember who I am, or who other people are, or to have loved ones have to try to deal with me like that.. I have seen it far too many times, and it is just so sad...
