    Yikes....

    Ever since I was little, I have been afraid of thunder.  I don't know why.  But, everytime I hear thunder, my first reaction is to hide.  I know it is a beautiful sound to others, but for me it is a deep pounding of fear in my heart.  Thunder isn't bad, but it...

    Not so much scared as startled by.

    I can never quite prepare for it...even when I see the flash of lightning and know to expect it, a loud clap always makes me jump and yell expletives.

    Me Too.

    I love the rain, but I HATE thunder. It's not a carry-over of a childhood fear, either. Thunder didn't bother me as a child, but at some point it started really scaring me. When it's thundering I feel very small and vulnerable. The noise itself startles me and it makes things...

    Silly, I Know

    I too am afraid of thunderstorms, a childhood fear that has obviously continued. It feels so silly, because it's the sound of thunder that terrifies me. Obviously thunder can't harm you. But, whenever it starts I can feel this dread beneath my skin...and I also panic about...

    There's something calming about rain and some thunderstorms. As long as the thunderclaps are not extraordinarily loud, storms are nice to listen to at night.
