    my biggest fear used to be going crazy, but that's not really an issue anymore.

    now my biggest fear is spiders. I really hate them. They are creepy asnd disgusting, and it's the time of year when there are a lot of them.

    Falling from a great height.

    I don't have a fear of heights, it's the thought of falling, because I know the sudden stop at the end will most likely kill me. I'm figuring that I'll get over that fear when I take sky-diving lessons and learn how to sky-dive. smile

      That's scary for me too. Ok, just about everything is....

    I have two big fears: the greatest is being buried alive or having to crawl in a long, underground tunnel. My second is dying of thirst.

    For the most part, I live pretty fear-free.  There is pretty much only one big one, and it's the one most people (especially parents) have.  It's so big it's something I stash away at the back of mind and try not to let have any "oxygen"; and it's such that I wouldn't even let myself put it into words.  By keeping control over it (mostly), and keeping as much as perspective as possible, I'm able to call it "something parents always have in the back of their mind", rather than letting it turn into a full-blown fear - but it's always there.

    Other than that - since I stay away from bad neighborhoods at night, usually take some steps to keep myself safe (but sometimes don't even bother), and stay away thinking spooky/creepy thoughts and/or watching horror movies; I don't fear anything on a regular basis.  There are times when I get fearful in one situation or another, but those times are isolated and pretty rare.
