    What are you afraid of?

    When you were a little kid you were scared of the dark, and "monsters".  What scares you as an adult, a phobia, a thing or something else?

    I was afraid of the dark when I was younger. Deathly so. I've grown out of it mostly, but the irrational fear of "what if something is about to murder me because I can't see them" still rears its ugly head periodically. I haven't had any traumatizing life experiences to justify this, so I can't even begin to tell you why this happens.

    Other things I am scared of are animals I have had bad experiences with, much later: geese, jelly fish, wasps, spiders, beetles. I don't go to parks or beaches all that often, so they are easy to avoid...

    Spiders.  I have nightmares about that.  I freak out about that.  I do all I can to kill them if I see them.

    Great answers-thanks! Personally, I'm creeped out by sea horses,YUCK! I think you could rob a bank with one of those little freaks, instead of a weapon! Gross! I've known people totally freaked-out by large spider webs, they couldn't, even walk pass them.

    I'm afraid of heights. I was the same way when I was little.
