My current biggest fear is having a child of mine die. That's just the most unthinkable tragedy possible, and it doesn't seem like something anyone can ever recover from. I know it's statistically almost impossible to happen to me, but accidents can happen. I would not be able to live if that were to happen to me. Honestly, even though I really really want to have a kid, this fear is giving me reservations about it just in the slim chance it could happen.

Mild Claustrophobia. I got stuck earlier this year in a small service elevator with three other guys on the Scandi trip. I was experiencing some anxiety but kept it together. Only stuck about 10 minutes.

Pretty much all kinds of insects especially cockroaches. Spiders and Scorpions are my nightmares too. Japanese creepy horror movies scare me much more than the Hollywood ones with bloody scenes.

I would say that some insects (especially spiders) are my only mild phobias. It's always interesting when I spot a spider with my grandfather next to me as I immediately want to kill it but he doesn't (and doesn't when I do it at all).

Also mild claustrophobia here and then a really random and unreasonable fear of being poked in the eye by tree branches LOL. Anyone Ive told makes fun of me, I don't know where it comes from but its a very real (albeit weird and funny) phobia I've always had.

^That actually happened to me a few weeks ago. I really don't remember how but I got pocked in the eye by some random tree branch. I was lucky as it was fairly soft (for a tree branch) and it hit me not in the center of the eye but more to the side. Still, it was pretty nasty

I get really freaked out by mannequins. The more realistic they are, the more uncomfortable I get.

Death by lava.

Seriously.

Or by an earthquake, too.

Fearful of either.

And Vancouver is (apparently) way overdue for a major earthquake, we keep being told, year after year.

:omg:

^ Did that make the earthquake during the Mexico Tour last year that much more exciting for you? ;)
