I have this :

We are on a large construction site, and we are drilling large piles -say 2 mts dia- with the piling machine..After 3 meters of drilling, the operator takes its bucket off the pilee and puts it to the side then goes away for a while -may be to have his tea- and somehow I get into the hole which was drilled 3 mts and I can not get out..

The operator comes back and continues his drilling without noticing me.

 

do you have any generic fears? daily fears?

I´m afraid of heights, even standing on the second step of a ladder gives me shivers. Also, I hate it when I don´t have a total control of the situation, hence no roller-coasters for me. Even being pushed in a wheelchair, like it happened in hospital when they were taking me for a scan, was terrible. Not having any influence on where I was going was scary. Surprisingly, I didn´t have the feeling of not being in control during the C-section. but maybe it was because it felt like it wasn´t real...

It´s an odd one, but I hate stairs. I´m not sure why, but ever since I was little, running up or down the stairs I would hate! Though mainly in the dark... but i´m not afraid of the dark {#emotions_dlg.confused} I just feel like someone is on the stairs with me, and it creeps me out!

 

I also don´t like china or baby dolls... they are just scary looking! - Especially the ones that have blinking eyes! {#emotions_dlg.noway}

Heights! - I can´t go up inside tall buildings, I hate take-off in a plane, I get dizzy looking up at a skyscraper - I even dream I am falling sometimes... {#emotions_dlg.scared}

Spiders! - not the web ones (they are cute) but the "runners", those nasty ones that live in the ground (or under the sofa) then run out suddenly at night .  I used to be scared of them ALL until I watched a web spider making his web one day in the garden and it was so beautiful and clever, so we came to an agreement - I leave them alone and they leave me alone  I am so scared of the house (running) spiders that my father made me special spider screens for my whole house to put in my windows! I have not seen one in my house in two years but..... {#emotions_dlg.scared}

The Local Government - Who invested in bad banks, lost lots of money and now have to make 60% cuts in services and are, as we speak, debating the future of the place where I work.  They will give us their final decision just before Christmas. Nice.....but I dont remember putting "no job" on my Christmas list. {#emotions_dlg.scared}

How creepy is that? ..... {#emotions_dlg.scared}
