465 days ago, thenewgreen asked "What are you afraid of?" The comments were wide ranging, and included many things that haunt all of us - fear of the unknown, fear of a wasted life, rejection, spiders, the works!

I'm interested in Irrational fears. The totally illogical, the things you know are totally impossible but still make you break out in a cold sweat.

I have two that I can think of, both of which are the byproduct of a wild imagination. The first involves swimming in deep lakes, where I am convinced that a large fish is going to mistake my foot for a smaller fish, and pull me down.

The other, however, is extra strange. while driving, I often stretch my neck like this:

I have a reoccurring fear that when I crack my neck, my neck will go limp and i will be unable to control my head's motions. I will have to not only hold my head in such a way that my spinal cord doesn't sever, but also drive myself to the hospital (I'm in the car anyways, you know).

So hubski, what are your irrational fears? your ridiculous brain crack that causes you anxiety?


That I'll be alone for the rest of my life.

Some days it feels more irrational than others. Today is not one of those days.
