  • Do you have any phobias?

    What fears do you have that are irrational or illogical?(don't tell us that you're afraid to swim with Great White Sharks will a leg wound, for example)

    I used to have an irrational fear of lightning. It used to freak me out even if I was in a car or house. It originated with a childhood incident when I as at a little league practice and, while I was in the on-deck circle, lightning hit the backstop. I've since gotten over it.

    I also once had an extreme fear of public speaking, which I got over (can't do what I do for a living if you are unwilling to speak in public).

    Not sure that I have any true phobias today, though I really don't like to be in large crowds of people.

        Phobiphobia - the fear of fear!

        Seriously, the only two biggies are that I will accidently hurt a kid while I am driving, and I don't do too well with water...the swimming kind. I float like a rock.

          Sam, is the fear of the water a new thing? I thought that they called you the Mark Spitz of missouri when you were in high school.

            Who ever gave you that idea? Really, I can't swim a stroke. My son swims like a fish, my father used to swim like a fish....I swim like a rock.

                  No, I think his nickname was "Spit Marks" (some sort of tobacco reference, I'd wager)

                      I'm sorry man but that cracked me up. I like that.

                      My fears, Snakes, spiders, death, the ocean. Damn you would not catch me out there in the middle of no where on a boat floating above 5mile deep watter.

                        Mine is ants cuz they don't come one at a time. They bring every fricken bro, sis, mom, dad, friend, acquaintance including Ms. Queen..... The reason is as a young child my parents kept the sweets up top in our kitchen cupboard. One morning I crawled up there, opening and stepping up one drawer at a time to get to the counter and reach for the goodies. Well our whole counter had ants all over them and they were crawling all over me as I was going for the goodies and I'll never forget that. It totally freaked me out.

                        I will save a spider, but any ant that comes my way is dead!!!!!!!!

                              Can not stand being in small places including not shutting doors in rooms and yes bathrooms. Thank god I get my own thrown

                              Large crowds--Christmas shopping sucks!

                              People I don't know touching me. Doctors, dentists and haircut appointments are a bear for me. I get the sweats and my blood pressure is through the roof.
