I Am Scared of Thunder

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 92 People

    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...
