Good morning everyone,

What Are You Most Afraid Of And Why?
I am most afraid of my husband being in a car accident or passing away by any means. It is a true phobia, every time my husband is in the car I am absolutely petrified that something will happen to him.
He is the safest driver, but that doesn’t count for much when the whole world is always on their phones behind the wheel distracted. You could be doing everything right, and yet someone else could be an absolute idiot and put others lives at risk when they are behind the wheel.
Even if he gets a cold/flu, I worry and watch him like a hawk. I just want him to be happy, healthy and safe at all times. I love him far too much, and I just want to make sure he lives the longest and healthiest life as much as I am able to help provide for him. I am terrified of anything ever happening to him.
This has always been my way, though. When I was younger, I used to get off the school bus and have to cross a bridge over the highway on my walk home. If I didn’t cross the bridge quick enough, something would happen to my family. That’s what my anxiety used to tell me to make me cross the bridge quick enough! I used to have a huge fear of heights, and I still do. At least it let me cross the bridge sooner enough so that the fear was over.
My anxiety isn’t as terrible anymore, I have learned to manage it well enough however I still have those creeping up thoughts in the back of my head but I just have learned to shut them out. That’s what being an adult is useful for, you can have selective thoughts and memories! (And hearing, if someone is talking to you and you want to pretend you can’t hear them!)
There are the stereotypical fears as well like spiders and all of those scary things, of course. I can’t stand spiders, especially because I live in Australia the ones we get here are huge and can actually kill you if you get bitten by the wrong one. Imagine what gardening is like here for us Australians! My husband is from England and said the spiders there are all small and harmless, that must be so nice. I can’t even imagine that!
