    whats your greatest fear?
    and i dont mean stuff everyones afraid of like dying or drowning or running out of captain crunch
    im talkink about thing that people generally arent scared of

    like one thing im scared of is when i'm on the escalator and i reach the end. and if i dont move my foot then i get sucked into the whole thing and flattened like a pancake

    also when i'm driving and there's some pissed guy driving near me i always pray that he doesnt go into gta mode and ram right into my car

    scary stuff rite

    When everyone stares at me in a very creepy way. Just like today when I was going to buy some chicken...I thought I was being surrounded by molesters...
    Being on the train and thinking that it will fall of the bridge and drown in the river.

    Let's all hunt down Raducan and say, "hey rad" :D
    This doesn't always work :( Maybe there's a right and wrong way to do it idk

    When I was little I used to be really scared of thunderstorms and started cleaning up my toys. Also, sometimes I'm afraid to leave my room if I'm awake really late at night. Whenever I come home and no one else is home, I'm afraid that someone broke in, hid, and is getting ready to shoot me as I walk in for some reason.

    I'm freaked out by tunnels and caves. Whenever I'm in one I can't stop thinking of all the weight of the earth above me and I panic a little.

    also when i was a kid i used to be scared of canister vacs
    probably because i imagine them like sucking up everything around me without any remorse

    like that creepy blue vacuum from telitubbies that eats everything in the room then starts sucking on all the teletubbies

    but canisters are way better than uprights so its all good now

    It freaks me out the idea of trying to open my eyes while my head is inmersed into water, can't stop thinking that water could get inside my head.

    on Shadow of the Colossus, I always get terrified during the battle with the 14th colossus because I know that if I don't do things in time, he will just hit me without me seeing him, catch my legs and troll me into a corner. I get specifically scared at the 6:46 mark in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDHrRvPC81U

    I always fear that when I'm on the bus I will fall asleep, miss my stop and never be able to get home ever again. Also every 5 minutes I get really scared that my phone has been stollen and frantically search for it even if I'm at home.

    This actually happens to me occasionally. I'm rlly bad at drinking, so on the rare occasions I go out drinking with ppl I'll often have too many, go home via bus and pass out on the bus. Fortunately most of the time I catch a bus that finishes its route just an hour walk from home.

    My biggest fear is that people will discover that I am a grandmother with a condo by the lake but I can't go outside because my nephew cut off my legs so now all I can do all day is play Pokemon Online.

    I can't believe I forgot my main fear which is needles. I don't mean I don't like injections, even seeing someone else holding a needle makes me feel faint and even people pretending a mechanical pencil is a needle terrifies me. (My fear represented graphically: I-8=– )

    Needles (like injections, withdraws things of that sort if it was not in body prior or within my body it has no business being outside or inside my body.) and just the fact that they are sticking shit inside my body that dose not belong there,the ocean, (because if you fall into the water there not only can you drown which is not my fear you can get eaten which is.) and extreme mutilation. (kinda ironic since I am trying to enter a profession as a surgeon.)

    Lol speakingof foreign objects. I find the idea of worms 'worming their way' into my body disgusting. Worming their way not through my ears or nose or w/e, but digging through my muscles and then crawling in the skin beneath. It isn't really a phobia, but I don't like it either lol.

    Yet another irrational fear I got is going through a nightmare, and waking up in the middle of it only to realize I've woken up within the nightmare.

    Reminds me of the Doctor Who Christmas episode with Dream Crabs. A dream within a dream. Nightmares don't bother me, maybe very rare time, but I've wondered what that experience would be like.
