Shadow Orb The Anguish and Anxiety thread

As Halloween is drawing near I'm curious what you guys and gals fear the most in life.


I for one think that I fear pain the most. Death is something (or someone haha) I can face, but pain? Pain and suffering, seemingly endless torment and agony is what I fear the most. The worst part is that accidents can happen to everyone, everywhere. Sometimes you hear stories in the news of people that just live their everyday lives and get involved in terrible and unfortunate incidents.


So what's the thing you're afraid of?

I'm surprised it's you who started the thread. I thought you got rejected by some girl.

Anyway.

-Spiders
-Deep water
-Being homeless
-Die a slow, painful death
-Gore
-Slavery
-People dressed in fetish gear
-Woods at night
-Eternal life (Sure I'd love to live much longer than the average human, but eternal life? No thanks)

Rejection isn't something I'm afraid of anymore, I overcame it (and fears are basically emotions you haven't conquered yet). (Btw, still no progression with the girl, because I haven't seen her in a while )

Knowing that after my death I won't be able to look after or interact with those I'm closest to again. I can only guess this gets worse when you have kids and realise you're going to miss out on so much of their lives (and their kids lives, and so on).

It's best to just confront your fears and deal with them.

I was afraid Obama was going to get re-elected. He did. It's about as miserable as I expected, but I'm dealing with it.

Perfection. I fear that there will be a point in my life where I can't improve myself any more. That would not just be my own death, but the death of mankind's essence: ambition.

  • Drowning
  • Suffocating
  • Choking
  • Burning alive
  • Bleeding out

Drowning is probably my biggest fear though. Don't misunderstand, I love to swim and I'm on the rivers a lot, but the thought of drowning is just terrifying. I've almost drowned before and it is just nightmarish.

Tarantula Hawks.

Bees.

Fucking wasps.

Any relatively large, flying insect that makes a loud buzzing noise. Yes, even the harmless ones, like junebugs or carpenter bees.

The worst part of the catheter was, I found, having it removed. Not because it hurt, but because it's kind of hard to make a good first impression on the blond french nurse attending to you if your first meeting consist of her pulling a hose out of your dick.

Heights scare me. Like, even in WoW, I get vertigo. Oblivion is also pretty scary.
