NWR: Do You Have Irrational/Paranoid Fears?
I have 4..
#1...every since FI got robbed at gunpoint TWICE a few years ago...I fear it happening again and the robber actually pulling the trigger...although we moved out of that area and it's been years, I am still fearful of it.
#2...I have a big fear of driving...I don't know why, I've never been in an accident or anything, but just the thought of me driving sends me into a panic. I passed my drivers ed class in High school by buying my teacher a bucket of KFC chicken because I didn't want to have no parts of learning :/ I can say I am a little better, because years ago, I would have panic attacks just being in a car with someone else driving, I would not sit in the front seat and I was very selective of who I got in a car with. Now, I am comfortable with being a passenger...every now and then if we are on the highway, that anxiety creeps up. I want to learn...and every year I say "this is my year to learn how to drive"...but the anxiety and fear always wins.
#3..Something happening to me before my kids are old enough to take care of themselves. I know FI would take great care of them, but it's nothing like their mother taking care of them.
#4..this is just weird...I cannot watch any kind of crime shows at night!!! I dvr them and watch them in the daytime...because I am convinced that if I watch the show at night, the criminals that are portrayed in the show, will come and get me...so lame, lol!!!
