Hey /x/, what is your greatest fear, like none can pay you a million dollars to go though it?
ill start-Thalassophobia-the fear of the ocean.
not the shoreline or the beach like in open ocean, i would die of a heart attack before i saty there for two minutes.
Mine would be putting me in a room with a legit haunted mirror and forcing me to look into it, or a room full of mirrors in a haunted house and forcing me to sleep in the room.
Waking up in a house of hornets. They have been living in this structure for thousands of generations and have maximized the space they can emcompass without collapsing the building. If I run they will burst from the wallpaper and eat me alive. I must creep out, but many of them still manage to be provoked and I am stung for minutes as I make my way out of the place. It's a recurring nightmare.
I'm afraid of dogs. When I see a dog through a window, I'm fine. But as soon as that physical barrier is gone, I lock up. The possibility of walking around at night and getting attacked by a dog scares the fuck out of me. IDK why.
I can't stand mental asylums. Every time I see a movie where someone is restrained in a institution and forced to take any medication my spine tingles a bit, even if I saw the scene multiple times before. I was forced to take meds that just made me feel worse about myself for half of my life, and the thought of being forced to take more against my will is my biggest fear of all time.
You couldn't pay me a million dollars to sit in a room filled with roaches. They are my worst fear, I can't stand being in the room with a live cockroach. Ironically, I'm an insect and arthropod enthusiast. Ants and bees are my favorite animals, and I want to practice beekeeping in the future.
I'm also very scared of the big, smiling wide-eyed faces my imagination tends to randomly put in dark places, open window blinds at night, and mirrors in the dark.
I hear that, millipedes are awesome. Centipedes kinda have me on edge though. Like, I'm not afraid of them, but I find them off putting. Something about them just seams so other worldly and carnal. I don't know how to explain it.
I use to call them pincher bugs when I was a kid. They kinda freaked me out. Then when I became an adult, I learned they were called earwigs because they crawled INSIDE OF YOUR EARS.
Fucking terrified of them now.
I'm really not afraid of anything, be it real world or fictional. If you can name it and it actually exists, odds are that I've dealt with it previously and I'm not afraid of doing so again.
Meh, I haven't encountered one personally but I'm not actively afraid of them. I can look at images or videos about them and not feel afraid. Isn't that the conversation we're having? Besides, in my life, the likelihood that I ever would have to deal with one is virtually zero.
No, but I have been raped. I'm not worried that it will happen again.
I would have to say being stuck in a tube (like stuck at the waist, with your hands clamped to your side), being unable to move.
I don't know if it would be worse to have some unseen threat below your dangling feet or if you were just left there to starve to death. Both kind of suck worse than anything I could imagine.
Genetic memory maybe? We used to roam in caravans and the like, sit around camp fires that kept beasts at bay in the pitch black night. We feared fast, muscled creatures that hunted in packs intelligently and that could tear into our stomachs or throats with knife like teeth and claws.
I think it's the same thing when people have a strong fear of bugs that carry filth (like roaches), spiders that carry poison, or even mice that breed plague fleas.
he changed youtube to this
everytime i try to go there i get this
Being left completely alone in the world.
If this happened, it would mean that not only are all my loved ones dead, but I'd be left completely alone with my own mind.
I have severe OCD, and being left with nothing but my thoughts would be horrible.
I would never stay inside a school after it's getting dark. Not for a million dollars, not for a billion dollars. Though I'd be okay having an all nighter at some abandoned house. Fuck schools man, I remember playing soccer at afternoons in my old school and I always had a feeling someone was watching me through one of the classes in the nearby building. Also saw a shadow once that literally faded away as I was watching.
Of it makes you feel any better I have been working in a vet clinic for 4 years with all types of dogs big and small and have only been bitten once. I was being careless. I deal with frightened and nervous animals and most are fine.
A lot of dogs only become aggressive if you mess with them. Most are fine if you leave them be. A lot of dogs are happy and friendly.
It's a shame you are scared of dogs because I've had so many wonderful experiences with them.
I tried to kill myself and was locked up in a mental hospital. It was the worst experience of my life. It was very strange and surreal. Honestly a lot like the movies.
The sad old neglected senior citizens. The crazy religious guy. People screaming at the walls.
Forced blood tests and medications.
My room mate tried to hang herself and an attendant watched us sleep the whole night.
Of anything it has taught me if I attempt suicide I will make sure it succeeds so I never have to go to a place like that.
