What’s Your Biggest Fear?

0

Like the title asks, what’s your biggest fear? I decided to ask this because I’m going through some hard stuff right now, and I’m kind of afraid. I guess knowing other people’s fears would make me realize that I’m not alone, and that people can get over their fears. I learned that I could go blind someday within a few years. My eyes are really bad and I’m already on my 8th prescription for glasses/contacts. It’s genetics. My dad had laser eye surgery to correct his eyes, and if I don’t want to go blind, I’ll have to get it also. I have never had a serious surgery or even broken a bone, so this is definitely freaking me out. Sure, if my eyesight was really bad, I would cave in and get the surgery. It just scares me thinking that they could mess up and make me permanently blind. Enough of my ranting, what’s your biggest fear?

That my family won't be able to move on if I ever kill myself.

Being alone. Like, totally alone. The kind of you don't even have someone to think of. I've been there. It sucks. It's horrible. I almost got completely crazy back then.

Growing up. I know it sounds totally cliche but I'm terrified. What's going to happen to my friends? What will I do? Will I succeed? It's scary to think about it. To think about how your life is changing so much. I don't know maybe I'm just crazy.

i fear that the people who i thought would never leave me/abandon me, they actually will.

Vomiting. The feeling of your stomach being crushed in a vice isn't exactly a pleasant one. I would rather cry blood out of my eyes and see a ghost every single night for 100 nights in a row, then ever vomit again.

I have so many fears that it is actually really hard to determine the biggest one of all, and I think that's what scares me the most. I am afraid of being afraid for myself and what I am capable of doing.

I don't know if this will help, mine's a silly one..... Slugs. Ever since I can remember, I have been absolutely terrified of slugs. I had nightmares about them coming and- crawling?- whatever it is they do- up my leg and eating me with their radula. Of course, when I was young, it wasn't really that gory. I had some back and forth with having Limaxaphobia- it's somewhat better now. Still, I like having salt handy- living in a wet climate definitely has its downsides!

I'm a pretty fearless guy, but I guess I'm afraid of STDs. I mean, who isn't?

Having my teeth pulled out.

Iv'e got plenty of fears that i'm sure alot of people can relate to (Heights, drowning, tight spaces) but I think my biggest is the concept of truly losing touch with reality. I mean hearing malicious voices, seeing horrific things that aren't actually there in vivid detail, and never being able to make it stop. Which is partially why i'm interested in psychiatry and do pity schizophrenics. The fact that human beings have such experiences is honestly scary in itself I think.

I mean, in actuality, I fear blood. A little blood, that's fine. But get me a whole arm missing and I'm out. Out as in, passed the fuck out. Even during biology, when I'm studying blood, I get light-headed and dizzy.

I am 15 and named Ben. I would say it is damn close. It is either spiders or asking a girl out. I would probably say asking a girl out, haha, they are my kryptonite, and if anyone can help me with that problem then great.

to be honest my biggest fear is that because of my epilepsy my son wont have a normal healthy mom to live with. i really am afraid of losing my child because of this or just have to burden my son with it as he gets older.

My biggest fear is doing nothing with my life, or ending up in a monotonous life doing the same thing day in and day out doing a job I hate. The thought of that terrifies me. I'm sorry to hear about your eye sight, try to keep busy and always talk to friends and family about what is scaring you that's how I keep my mind off of my fears.

Family Deaths, then enclosed spaces, claustrophobia.

This is going to sound sad and attention whoreish but its the truth.... I am afraid of EVERYTHING. I'm afraid I'm going to turn out like my parents and be a terrible mom for my son. I'm afraid of being alone. I'm afraid to lose my fiance/he doesn't love me. I'm afraid that people (everyone) wont like me. I'm afraid of clowns, rape, the dark, not being good enough, that I was a mistake, that I'm worthless, that no one will ever love me, that I cant even kill myself properly,that my life is going to suck until the day I die..... All I have is fear so no, you aren't alone.......
