What are you afraid of?
Me: Carnies. Circus folk. Nomads, you know. Smell like cabbage. Small hands

2. Cancer;
That I'll die before my son is old enough to remember me; having to live with a colostomy bag; fire; balloons.

9. Hugs to you, rb
:hug: :hug:

Cancer is scary, I agree. My mom has a colostomy bag, and while it's not fun, it's certainly manageable. They are also doing stuff these days where you don't actually have a 'bag'... don't know if you know about it. PM me if you end up needing more info about that stuff. I know my mom has all kinds of support people she knows :hug:

13. Thanks.
We're still in discovery mode here, so it's a lot about fear. I think if I actually had a diagnosis, I wouldn't be as scared.

Hugs back.

15. That's understandable.
Knowing what you're facing and planning for it is usually easier than waiting. I hope you get some good answers, and soon.

10. Also, the dark.
Or more appropriately, the things that might be *hiding* in the dark...

4. Whatever is in the attic
I swear I am hearing things. I keep hearing something moving up there-I think the new baby and all the fright of "The Exorcist" are rolling together in one weird coffee fueled freakfest.

Now I don't like mice, but if you make 'em airborne--then they're just plain outta control!

11. Not much scares me
except grief, pain, and squirrels.
Those squirrels are vicious, man! Never trust one of the little bastards, even if they're cute.

Khash.

22. Dying, and Night Terrors.
Anxiety attacks are just another thing that "god" uses to make you not care whether you live or die.
