When I was real young, I was afraid of the monster that lived under my bed. After many nights of yelling for my dad to save me, he finally put the mattress and box spring on the floor. Problem solved.
After I fell, I developed vertigo. It persists to this day. I don't panic, but everything swims. I avoid heights, unless the activity is fun - like skydiving!!!
Bridges over water. I seen alot of bad wrecks on the galveston causeway bridge and i drive 30mph over that and most bridges over water
Nothing !!!! Exept cracks on sidewalks cos when you step on them you break someone's back. That was a lot of stress for me when I was a kid.
When I was a child, and I would wake up before my mom on Saturday morning, I'd turn the tv on to watch cartoons.....if Scooby Doo would come on the channel, I'd wake my mom up cos I was afraid to touch the tv to change the channel! (Yes, it was before the remote control!)
For me as a child and well into adulthood, I was absolutely terrified of death...it was a numbing, paralyzing fear.
I have been watching a Q about coping with death among younger participants on Blurtit, and not quite sure how to explain - but for me the whole perspective has changed now.
I was terrified of the dark all the way through my teens. I finally got over it, and now I have a hard time sleeping if the room isn't dark enough.
Oddly enough, Church scared the bejesus out of me. All this talk about the body and blood of Christ and then to have to stare at a man hanging on a cross with a crown of thorns was frightening for a child. 😲
The dark, Jesus' father that image of him nailed to the cross disturbed me, ghosts, bee's and wasps, someone under the bed, mice,
Worzel Gummidge (although I still watched it), Jaws.
Road sweepers, the hoover, helicopters/planes, the dark! :)
Still do! BLEH I cant stand those things. I have a phobia to them I think
The dark. Nothing's changed, I'm still afraid of it lol
Homeless🏠, electricity☇, water 💧turned off, abuse (neglect😦, mental 😨and psychological😔).
When a youth I was afraid of the dark. But ony arond buildihgs. Out in the woods, no problwem.
Sleep because of my nightterrors
My father. And to be felt alone as a child who barely can handle the outside world.
I was always afraid to not have my sister with me. I did not like being alone. She didn't have to be in the room with me but she had to be in the house, in the car, at grandma's house, anywhere I went I wanted her near.
Hello Roy! As a kid, I was brave and my parents have never wasted their time telling me stories that have been made up to scare. However, I might say that the sea was something that I have always avoided due to its unstable nature. I have never managed to learn how to swim and I still cannot stay calm if I am in there and it gets rough!
Death---but only because of the terror it occasioned due to my introduction to it.
I was 7 when my grandmother died. We lived in Montana; she in New York. Everybody was upset about the death. We went to New York "for the funeral."
I am sitting in the living room and my father says to get read, we're leaving. I asked "where to." He said, "To see grandma." I got all excited because apparently being "dead" wasn't a big deal.
I ran into the viewing room, saw her in the casket, and freaked out.
I do not go to a wake unless it is somehow absolutely essential that I be there.
