I love how open-ended this week’s prompt is!  I really don’t know if it was supposed to Halloween-friendly fears or more general and serious topics! I’m going to try and wing this and interprete it my own way and I guess Only time will tell if everyone else interpreted it the same way. Here are some of the things that make me shudder.

I Know they are not really consider much of a threat, but I can’t stand roaches. I’m a logical person who knows there’s nothing in them that could ever hurt me. This is much less true in the middle of the night if I wake up and a cockroach skitters across the floor I will scream the house down. everything about them down to pictures of cockroaches disgust me.

I don’t know how best to explain this as I am not totally a control freak but thinking of years from now and not knowing exactly what’s bound to happen gives me anxiety. I guess this started when I lost my dad suddenly and unexpectedly as I had always taught I will always have my parents around. I Know I’m not and cannot be incontrol of what tomorrow brings but having a glimpse or a slight sense of it all calms me.

Yes!! I hate those crawling little terrors. I don’t even care if there are considered venomous or not, I don’t want them anywhere around me. When I was younger, the biggest threat you can give me to get my ass out of anywhere is to tell me you saw a milipede there once. I don’t even care if it was from years ago. My brothers haunted me with that phobia for years and even still catch me unaware sometimes till now and I am a grown woman. I still get super jumpy around my house even if I know there is no way one will get in just because my brother said he saw one once when he was visiting. I know it was a lie but I still look around the house and wishing I still live with my mum to help me check and assured me she took all out. I’d rather a snake enters my house than a milipede. I can easily tackle a snake but will never be anywhere close to a milipede.

This might sound a little strange and probably need a little explaining. I normally text and email to keep in touch with loved ones for years now and don’t really make phone calls unless it’s urgent. Phone calls are reserved for horrible, urgent news like someone dying, being sent to the hospital with a life-threatening illness or something generally horrible happening. This makes me nervous when my phone does ring and there’s anyone from my family on call display because I know that chances are high I’m about to hear heartbreaking news. We have group texting and all and talk everyday but the other day, my phone rang and I saw my sister’s number pop up and I suddenly started to panic and the first thing I asked was ” what is happening? everybody alright”

Probably be difficult for you to understand but losing anyone close to me has been my biggest fear and I know it’s a horrible way to live!

I have a fear of being trapped in an elevator. Blame it on all the years of horror movies and tv series I’ve been watching. The worst feeling is getting in an elevator alone and an alarm goes off and all the horrible movie scenes I’ve seen over the years of all the horrible ways one can die. lol! I always have a moment of panic that I’ll be trapped inside as it plunges down to the basement floor or of no one noticing and I suffocate. Probably don’t help much that I am claustrophobic. I prefer taking stairs if I can help it.

What are some things that scares you?? Do you share any of mine??

Thanks for stopping by and for reading…




  1. Wow, we have a lot of the same fears. Fear of the unknown is a good one. I’m sorry you lost your dad. If only we could see the future and better prepare for hard experiences.

    On a sillier note, I don’t like roaches and other creepy crawlies either. They make my skin crawl.

    And thanks for stopping by my post earlier today.

    1. Thanks so much! We sure do… when I saw your post, I was like wow 😳 she is so me😁

      It won’t make the hard experiences hurt any less but it sure will take the element of surprise away and better suited to brace them.

      Thanks for stopping by❤️

    1. 😁 OMG! Here I was thinking I will probably get past in time🤦‍♀️ jokes on me right!?😁

      Thanks for stopping by ❤️

  2. Good list, though I don’t really share any of those fears. I don’t really like phone calls, but I can’t say I’m truly afraid of them. Creepy-crawlies don’t bother me either, except if they’re flying at my eyes. (At that point all bets are off and we must end this threat with FIRE!)

    My answer is here

    1. 😁 Thank you and yes! Fire 🔥 can come handy in tackling those monsters! Lol

      Thanks for stopping by and I will go check yours out now.❤️

  3. Phones seem to be a theme today. I don’t know if that’s a generational shift as we get older, or a reaction to immediacy of having a cell phone next to us at all times. Hm. :-/

  4. Yep, I share your fear of unexpected phone calls. I find talking on the phone stressful enough without having it sprung on me without warning and, like you, I instantly think it must be bad news.

    1. Happens to me always and I know I probably shouldn’t be doing that but I can’t help it😁 I get panicky when I get them🤦‍♀️

      Thanks for stopping by ❤️

  5. Unexpected phone calls are creepy. Probably why it was used do often in old movies and TV shows. I also think just the ring tends to set people on edge.

    1. Fan of bugs? Wow! I can’t go anywhere near those things 😁🤷‍♀️

      Those unexpected phone calls freaks me out 🤦‍♀️

      Thanks for stopping by and I will check your list out now❤️

  6. I think I’m over my fear of snakes. They never really bothered me in the first place, but when I was working on the XC track with a friend and she freaked out over the snake, but I just sort of inched him off the track, I realized he wasn’t going to jump up and eat me. Now if he’d been dead…I would’ve run for the hills. Lol! Good list.
