Day 8 Eight Fears

Hello!  Welcome to day 8 of our 10 Day You Challenge.  Let's talk about fears! Ugh!! My first fear is every mothers fear....please, please, please don't let anything bad happen to my baby boys!  Actually this could take up all eight fears if you think about it. I'm afraid they'll get into an accident or get hurt. I'm (especially) afraid that they will be bullied and I won't know how to handle it. I'm afraid they won't have the confidence to be successful in school and that I will fail them somehow. I'm especially afraid of failing them!!!  I just want them to feel secure and happy in their world.

I'm afraid of my illness rubbing off on my children. I'm afraid one of them will one day suffer with depression the way that I do. I'm afraid of heredityI'm afraid that one day my babies will need therapy and we'll say bad things about me as their mother.  Ugh! I think this is my biggest fear. All I want is for my children to grow up and say that they had a good mother, not a crazy mother. But we all know that's probably not going to happen! LOL.

Let's move on from my babies, shall we??  I'm not afraid of the usual things. I'm not afraid of heights, spiders, snakes, etc. I do absolutely HATE earwigs! I'm not a bug person AT ALL!!  My hubby is afraid of birds flying at him but that doesn't bother me. I'm not afraid of flying or roller coasters! I don't have these usual fears. I'm not afraid of thunder or lightening; I love both! 

I'm afraid of losing another person close to me. I cling to my friends now like never before. I'm afraid of funerals!! I'm afraid of hospitals! I'm sick of visiting people in them and I'm sick of visiting them myself!

I love horror movies and I'm not afraid of much when I'm watching them. The thing that scares me the most is ghosts! I'm convinced we have a ghost living in our basement and that little fu**er scares me all the time!  He has a thing about my laundry room and I am afraid of being down there by myself alone for too long! 

Ok, I think that's more than eight, but you get the picture!  I don't really have any crazy phobias, just a little OCD! LoL.

What about you? What are you afraid of?
