Things That Actually Scare You
 
Which things in your experience have actually scared you?

Just before I blacked out at a bar, I accepted a pill from a stranger and had a bad experience. So, I don't trust shady people I meet in bathrooms.

Swimming in the ocean and getting deep enough where I can't stand.

I'm a really strong swimmer though. It's not that I can't swim well, I just don't like not being able to see what's below me. If I was in a place where the water was clear I would be fine. with it. Also, being on a boat will do the same thing to me.

The epiphany of vanity.

Going broke.

captainsnazz 01-17-2013 06:58 PM

The time I broke my dick.
The time I woke up in hospital after drinking way too much as an idiot teenager.
The time I thought I was gonna be homeless in a city I didn't know.
The time I saw crazysam and ian the fox in the same thread.

Deep, open water. The anxiety I felt in certain parts of Life of Pi was nuts.

I don't think you really want to see what's dwelling underneath the ocean.

Speaking of oceans, the scariest thing that happened to me was when I got pulled out by the rip current when I was a little kid. I'd like to see the ocean try that nonsense on me now.

Rollercoasters. Seriously. Those suck.

Trowzaa 01-17-2013 07:08 PM

Open water, rollercoasters, heights, public speaking, drugs, meeting new people whilst sober etc

I just mean at the beach and stuff


Like, I don't really like going in farther than up to my chest, but if I could see the bottom (like in tropical places) I would have no problem just swimming around like I do in my pool. :shrug:



Aslo, rollercoasters

Used to love them but ever since I ended up in the hospital after my last amusement park trip I'm pretty terrified of them. I don't even like seeing them on tv and stuff tbh. :/

This. Don't so much mind being on a boat, but when swimming in the ocean where it's deeper than I can stand, I always think a shark is going to swim under me and bite my balls off or something.

I also get fearful of getting in a car accident when I'm riding in a car, and not driving, on I-95 at over 80 mph in a heavily populated area like Miami, Orlando, or Jacksonville. I mean, dying in a car accident is one of the worst ways to go out, and sadly, one of the most common.

Huge storms. I think they're cool, but I always have a recurring nightmare of tornadoes heading towards me. I've never even seen a tornado in real life, but just the thought of something so powerful and uncontrolled is unsettling.

Heights. or falling from heights.
