    Protecting Animals

    I think my biggest fear is not protecting an animal when I could. Recently I thought there was a gang of men in the woods badger baiting. I stopped the car and went to investigate and it turned out not to be the case. I was very nervous but more concerned about the badgers...

    Never Getting Over It

    Six months ago my husband told me he hated being married, wanted to be single again so he'd have no one to answer to, and asked me to leave our home forever.  He dropped me off on the side of a highway in the middle of nowhere... and drove away.  Just like that.  ...

    Well, Outside Of Sharks & Pregnancy...

    I'm afraid of hurting people. I try not to get close to others because of it. I think I'm also afraid of getting hurt, because I've been there. The first few times, you realize that it isn't entirely your fault; it's not always easy to judge how others will treat you when you...

    2 Things

    There are 2 things I'm particularly afraid of. I've been afraid of them pretty much all my life. They're not things you expect people to be afraid of, but I'll be honest - I'm afraid of them. The first is dogs. The second is cereal with milk.

    Alot Of Things!

    Roaches, spiders, being alone forever, hospitals, the thought that hell is real, that I'll live to be old, being around too many people, and lots of other ****. But those are the main one's. *sigh*

    I'm Afraid...

    to be close to people. I absolutely cannot trust anyone completely. Heights catch me too, but not as much as human interaction. I feel like, if I am to become close to someone and something horrid happens, then was it really worth it in the first place? So, in reality, I guess...

    I Ain't Scared Of No Ghost But...

    I am scared of trusting another completely with my heart, believing in love, growing old all alone, making love and finding out it was only lust for him, and dancing alone in the moonlight. So many things to be scared of but terrifying to me.
