    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...

    Not so much scared as startled by.
