But on to today's writing prompt is on things that scare you.
The first and foremost thing? Snakes. Yup - thanks dad. I have an absurd fear of snakes so badly that I shudder if I see one on TV, and god help me if I see a live one. I'm not even putting up a photo because I'd probably have to look away. They are just so nasty and gross and the tongue thing I just can't. I can't even bring myself to eat unagi because eels are like water snakes. *Shudders in seat*
Needles most likely rounds out my second choice. Ever since a bad blood draw when I was in the hospital at 16 I've had major needlephobia. DH didn't believe me until he went with me to get a vaccine and I hyperventilated and almost passed out (pregnancy will be fun, oi). Strangely enough, I'm ok with tattoo needles. But drawing blood and getting a normal shot? Ugh god. No thanks.
But of course, I'm scared of change. I hate to think what will happen one day when I'm older and I don't have my parents here with me any more. Sometimes the ache in my heart is almost too much to deal with - and I still have them. I don't even want to think about it... and if I'm ever without my DH... I'm just not sure I would be able to keep going.
What are some things that scare you - and what helps you to get over them?
