When I was really young, I was terrified of boats. I refused to get into any boat. I was convinced they would sink. I was probably between age three and five. Somewhere along the line I guess that fear went away since I learned to water ski at age nine in Florida.

Phobia wise I don't like little creepy crawlies. I too have become the spider killer in my house but I still get the willies around them. Fear wise I got a big dose of my biggest fear of my children being lost when they decided to take a walk to a friends house last summer and not tell me where they were going. I paniced and ended up calling the police. They were finally found by the mother of one of their friends from down the street about five blocks away from the house. I never want to feel that fear again and I have made sure that my kids understand that they have to tell me what they are doing and where they are going because that is the scariest day of my life.

As a child I was terribly afraid of dogs....but befriended my Pastor's standard Poodle....and after that was fine.

And then some years ago, I had terrible anxiety attacks and episodes of fear..My fears were largely centered around the future and especially around health and finances (this was back when I was healthy!!) Then God showed me that he'd met every need up until that time and that I just had to believe he would continue to do so. Oddly, my reality turned out to be much worse than anything I feared or dreaded back then...and I"ve never lost another moment to fear. God continues to meet my needs and get me through each day.

..But yeah, I still don't like spiders but I've had to suck it up and be the official spider-squasher in my house, because I"m the only one "man enough" to do it.

I must admit that most of my fears are silly like I can't walk over a bridge or a grate where I can see through it (and down, way down).

I don't like heights from ladders, etc. I don't seem to mind if I can't see how high I am like in an apartment.

I hate speaking in public. I can do it but I still hate it. Although, I'm better since I did Toastmasters for a few years.

I hate fog and extreme weather, e.g. tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, thunder & lightening storms, etc.

I dislike fast moving creepy crawlies like centipedes.

I don't like bats. They are ugly little creatures.

And, I'm not all together comfortable around dogs especially big, barking dogs.

is there something that frightens you? ( a phobia or just a chronic fear)
What positive things have you done to overcome it?

I have a huge phobia of snakes. I really haven't done much to overcome it... I just avoid them as much as possible and when in areas where they are/might be I stay vigilant and aware of my surroundings. So far no major issues since about 2002 when I jumped about 15 feet uphill to get away from a garter snake.
