Oh my goodness! Too many things freak me out to count!
Just to name a few...
Moths and butterflies: Yes, butterflies too. Ugh....their big eyes and fuzzy bodies freak the the living squawk out of me.
The human body(blood and gore): Even the word "veins" makes me flip out. I am extremely squeamish and can't even look when I get a paper cut.
Spiders: I think most of you can understand this...

Try Texas roaches. They are huge, fly and swim. They are the stuff nightmares are made of.

Flying roaches are bad enough. But SWIMMING??!! :eek: OMG, kill me now! And you know that they say that roaches can survive an atom bomb :( The terror with these damn things just keeps on coming!

Oh seriously, there's worse than cockroaches....

Queensland has those awful cane toads. I think they'd probably freak me out when they get here (they're on their way....) Funnel-webs are pretty hideous too, I'm not sure I'd like to have them around. And what about those river worms in South America?

I'm starting to change my mind about nothing much freaking me out.... :D

But do those things come into your house and freak you out in the middle of the night? That's the real catch! :)

Oh my goodness, so many entertaining stories and so many things I can relate to! I'm always iffy on spiders... one time I woke up to a giant one on my arm while camping, opened the tent cover and let it out to continue napping. Other days I scream and run away, haha!

One thing that gets me though is dolls. Can't stand them. When I was only four, my grandmother bought me one of those "sleeping" dolls that would close their eyes if you tilted them, and according to my mother when it closed its eyes I flung it behind me and ran away screaming from the room. Needless to say I wasn't the kind of child who enjoyed playing House! It was also intensified when my best friend at the age of 8 locked me in her doll room that was filled from floor to ceiling with creepy, life-sized dolls, turned off the lights, and told me they were going to get me... I don't think I've encountered anything scarier.

Except perhaps my mother when I've pissed her off. But that's a whoolllleee new level of scary. :D

HOW DO I KEEP FINDING THESE OLD THREADS- πŸ’€
Sometimes thread necromancy a good thing! Now I'll have to look back at my answers but doubt they changed.... Heights, spiders, deep water, snakes, suffocation.

I freak out about hospital bands on your wrist. They have to be so loose i can pull them off. My heart beats fast I get sweaty. Truly it freaks me out. I have to have them several times a month. Abd now that I'm a fall risk I get 2!!!

Last week I asked the check in nurse if I'm the only one and if this is weird? She said no, many people freak out about it. Lol I don't know if that's true or not? Or if she just wanted d to make me feel better.
