Re: What's Your Phobia?

When i was in the military i lived on the 3rd floor of the barracks. I was always afraid of drinking and goin on the stairs made of cement and falling and hitting my teeth on the steps and knockin em out. dont know why that always went through my mind,hence the reason i always drank in my room.

Snakes. On a plane. Seriously, never will be able to bring myself to watch the movie.

Sweet dreams everyone.
I guess you could describe Todd Collins as "gunshy".

LMAO! Absolutely stellar post. Hardest I've laughed on this site in a while.

I'm over by the window with wobbly legs and I'm ready to faint like an old lady, 70chip, already agitated over the empty pill bottle in his pocket, is cussing out the bartender for being out of his favorite single malt, SmootSmack is ready to lose it because he's stuck next to the hibachi chef and can't get away because he's boxed in by the crowd, and SlinginSammy is watching Redskins Report on the flat screen behind the bar with tears rolling down his cheek while Colt does his first interview as a starting QB with Larry Michael. Meanwhile, we can't get RobH's pasty white ass out of the handicapped stall in the men's room because the power keeps flickering due to a lightning storm and we're on the top floor of a friggin skyscraper, Schneed had a few too many and is on the roof looking for his two year old daughter even though she's safely at home tucked in bed, and Frost is busy looking for 70chip because he heard he's got the Xanax hookup and his flight is booked for first thing in morning.

And to top it off, Dirtbag missed the whole thing because he's at home watching Friends and hiding from his fuzzy teddy bear.

Re: What's Your Phobia?

I used to have real bad reaction to spiders. Not so much anymore, although I usually make the big ones I encounter a deal. I tell them , "You stay over there, I'll stay over here. As soon as you start coming over here though, you're dead!" But lately, I haven't really been that concerned about them.

I was watching "Dirty Jobs" one night & he was doing some spurlunking thing where he was gathering data from the bottom of a cave. At one point, he is trying to squeeze himself into this crevice between a floor & ceiling in an area in the cave & he gets stuck. I found myself gasping for air & kinda feeling like the world was suddenly very tight. It wasn't anything serious, but it made me realize that that is probably something that would scare the absolute shit out of me.

I feel the same way. I'm always the first one to jump off the swings, regardless of what might happen to me, but then watching a kid try it scares me they are going to hurt themselves. Or anyone, for that matter. It is strange...and as you said, hard to explain.

Re: What's Your Phobia?

Really interesting thread.
A few things really do me in:
- seeing knee injuries of any degree. I have never had one, but if I see any knee injury I feel sharp pains in my knees and they get pretty weak.

- I know this one is weird, but standing water, even pools, baths, etc. I always have to talk myself into them, or i will stand at the edge for a long time.

- and Hell, throughout my life, I have had several dream/nightmares each one presenting a facet of hell, some are humorous in hindsight (one in particular where I was in a never ending fall being pelted by McDonalds hamburgers in a constant barrage- strangely, I am not adverse to McDonalds, just hell)
The dream/nightmares of hell always wake me up sweating and petrified because of how detailed and kinda off the wall they are.

Re: What's Your Phobia?

Heights and medical stuff for me.

Heights make me wobbly. It used to be a lot worse, but I've learned to control it to a certain extent. It's all in my head.

I can't take the sight of blood or other noticeable physical injury. Like the Theismann broken leg. I just brought myself to watch it for the first time a few months ago. (I was 3 when it happened, so I didn't see it live). The sight of needles makes me very uneasy; upsets my breathing and my heartbeat. I've cut myself pretty bad in the past (not in an emo way) and every time, I end up nearly blacking out. When it happens, I stop breathing, but realize it once I'm on the verge of going down and can usually catch myself and correct it.

Re: What's Your Phobia?

This is weird, but I hate stickers and band aids, mainly used ones. They make me gag like a $2 hooker. I hate that when you buy fruit there are stickers on them and I've actually sent back drinks at a bar because the bartender forgot to take the sticker off the lemon or lime slice in my drink. I just gaged typing that.
My family jokes that it's a phobia but I know it's not because I can function around stickers, so I consider it an aversion.

As for more classis phobias, I'm not a big fan of swimming out in the open ocean. If I go to the beach I'll spend half the day in the water and be fine, but I think if I fell overboard a little ways out I'd probably freak out. At the same time though, I've always wanted to go scuba diving.

Rodents!

Stairs with no handrails! I never use handrails because of all the germs but it's nice to know they are there if needed.

I saw that epsoide and it scared the crap out of me too and I am not afraid of small spaces. I was like if he is stuck no one can help him. I guess after a few days of not eating he would lose weight and be able to free himself.

Here is another thing, why the hell is it so easy to get in to something put sometimes impossble to get out. Like sticking your hand in jar and then it is stuck, should it not fit in the first place. Man god does some f--ed up stuff to us sometimes.

This is a true story. A co-worker of mine lost his son a few years back. He died because he went hunting and followed a rabbit or racoonon or something into a hole and got stuck! Nobody know where he was and he died in the hole. OMG that is the worst death I have ever heard of. Could you imangine being in that hole for days waiting for death to take you?

I think he meant that a $2 hooker's appearance would make you gag! or at least get a bag!

Re: What's Your Phobia?

Having blood drawn freaks me out. If I see it I'll instantly get dizzy and nauseas. Not a big fan of bugs either. Big bugs. And bees of any kind, I'll run like a girl when a bee buzzes around me.
