    Do you ever get worried about a certain thing and it takes over your life?

    Last year, I began worrying about deadly cancers (esophageal and pancreatic cancer respectively), I had previously worried about bowel and stomach cancer, those fears pushed me to stop doing certain things, (which I have taken up doing again, atleast in moderation) and made me depressed. Not sure if I am completely over worrying, but I think about a month of not worrying over the top means I am getting over it.

    I did have a big fear of doomsday at the end of 2010 over the whole Dec 21, 2012 thing and in early 2011 over Harold Camping's supposed rapture.

    I have had phobias of germs, poisons as in pesticides, household chemicals and other things like that, carcinogenic material, asbestos and a stint of pyrophobia which lasted about a month in 2006.

    I'm currently fearing that I'm going to fail one of my classes because I took the exam for that class yesterday and it was quite possibly the hardest one I took in my entire life. I'm also worried that I won't meet the standards for future classes that I have to take that are even harder.

    I literally have a phobia of driving, where if I dunno exactly where I'm going (driven the route a couple times before), I get anxiety attacks to the point where I shouldn't even be in control of a car. :/ Which is lame, and I still drive unfamiliar routes sometimes when I'm calm enough to try to get over it.

    Phobias are pretty extreme and kind of pointless, since people don't even know why they have them sometimes, sooo.. phobias aside, I'm not really afraid of anything. I used to have a lot of fears when I was younger, but not so much anymore.

        Fear of pain I guess. Stinging insects and needles probably have a much greater fear factor than they should for me...

          Bugs. I hate them. Very much. If a cockroach (even a small one) landed on me, I would have a heart attack. If a fly whizzed past my ear, I'd fall on the floor and put myself into a ball.

          That and a fear of being alone in a closed location. I can't handle being alone in a bedroom...

            One big fear I have is that I'm going to get Diabetes, because a few of my grandparents had it and my mom is always freaking out that I'm going to get it because it skipped her generation. Most times I get really thirsty, or start urinating a little too often, or get weak due to lack of sugar, I panic. I've been tested for it recently and it came up negative, but I still worry it'll come to me any day now... like a ticking time bomb. One of my grandparents died from it and it's probably my number one greatest fear. I don't want it, and I don't want to pass it onto my kids, either.

            I've always been kind of a hypochondriac; one time my lymph nodes on one side of my neck were swollen, and I totally thought it was a tumor or something.

            As for phobias, I only have one: Emetophobia (extreme fear of vomiting or seeing someone vomit). I've had it since about 7th grade when my little sister got the stomach flu on a road trip and she threw up in the back seat while I was talking to her, then got out and I just watched her throw up multiple times on the sidewalk. I think it was extremely traumatic for me or something... no one likes to see that stuff happen or have it happen to them, but it's been more than that for me, from that point on I would start panicking if I got a stomachache or heard someone around me say "I don't feel well" or something of the like. Actually seeing or hearing it happen puts me in full panic mode. It's gotten better in recent times, but it still just freaks me out. I no longer panic if I get a simple stomachache, especially since I get them so often from digestive issues, but if I start feeling nauseous I still get a little on edge.

            Oh, I feel I should mention that when I just see the word "vomit" or whatever, or see it happen on tv shows/movies, it doesn't really bother me.

            I get scared of bugs, but I wouldn't really call it a phobia. If there's a bug flying, I'm going to leave the location ASAP and immediately lock myself in the nearest lockable place, but I think that's pretty rational, right? Edit: Lol, just realized if I saw a butterfree or beedrill in real life I would be TERRIFIED.

              My principal worry is getting kicked out of school cause of Physics grades.

              After we count cockroaches, spiders and death.

                Spiders and Wasps have made me more worried about nature than I should be.

                Failing to live up to my parents' expectations and my own standards are incredibly worrisome; grades especially are triggers to my depression majority of the time \: Phobias would be spiders and any kind of insect. Got to kill them the second I see them.
                And who knows: starting a new journey may not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun

                    I've got a fear of spiders but that doesn't really effect my life in any negative way, however, my other fears do. I'm terrified of trains. Its even a little difficult to type the word. I can't watch them on tv, I can't hear stories about them crashing, and I find travel to be very difficult. I'm also scared of people and crowds. I've had to deal with life altering agoraphobia and it's taken me ages to get "better". You never get better. You just cope better.

                      While I have a fear of all bugs, I'm absolutely HORRIFIED of bees and spiders.
                      Heights as well. Last time I went on a plane, I couldn't look out the window, and I cried my eyes out the first 20 minutes of the trip because I was so scared.

                      I've.. slowly been unearthing more of my fears as time went by.

                      For starters, I have a huge fear of public speaking, to the point where I will make excuses to get out of it. I've used nearly every excuse under the sun - someone in the family died and I didn't feel well enough to go up, I needed more time on my project, my external drive crashed, etc. It seems like it's gotten progressively worse but luckily I'm totally done with taking classes. It's nowhere near as bad anywhere except school presentations; as far as job interviews and etc go, I'm fine. =_=;

                      Then there's flying. I just feel a lot safer on the ground and absolutely loathe turbulence.

                      Aaaand more recently I've been a bit worried about the future. Will I find a good job? How much time will it take? Will I be able to live my dream of moving to Japan? Only time can tell which makes it harder to handle.

                      Remember back in 2008 when there was that theory that the Large Hadron Collider was going to create a black hole that would kill us all? That was one thing I feared. :x

                      But in all seriousness, I can't stand big dogs, because they always chase me and I always feel like they want to attack.

                      I'm terrified of wasps. I don't wanna get stung! D: What's funny is I've never been stung before. Think that's my only major fear.

                      tbh I think I might panic if I ever learn to drive, just thinking about it makes me a bit anxious. I know I tend to space out already. I need to get a permit and actually learn before I know if it'll be an issue.

                      I tend to overthink everything and panic at the first sign of something going wrong, but a lot of the time it doesn't really effect me too much.
                      If you're looking for me,
                      I'm hiding on Reddit or Twitter.

                      I have no real phobias. I'm terrified of death, though.

                      And the future worries me a lot. More than I like to admit.

                      and i will love to see that day

                        Bugs, especially spiders, no matter how big or small they are. Also not a fan of fire, probably one of the reasons I haven't learned to cook (as well as laziness).

                        Also a fear of heights, but I think I'm improving compared to in the past.

                          I have mild spheksophobia, I guess.
                          I also have an irrational fear of walking around in the dark. I know nothing's there, but I expect something like this or a modern skinwalker or something to show up when I wake up or walk around in my house at night.

                          - Fireworks, or other loud booming sounds. I'm extremely sound sensitive, but fireworks are worse because I was burned by them once.

                          - Pregnancy/childbirth. I've had recurring nightmares about both situations since I was about 16 and it's slowly made me not want to have children. It's something that really bothers me because deep down, I still would like to have them, but I don't think I can get over this fear because it gets worse every year.

                          - Cockroaches...I shouldn't have to explain.

                          - Thievery. I'm very materialistic. When I didn't have people or friends, I had things. I don't hoard though, lol. I value my things enough to organize them well and keep them in great shape, and many of my things have sentimental value and great memories held within. I'm terrified of being robbed of quite a few things. I would be completely distraught.

                          - Change. Probably not a fear per se, but it just makes me uncomfortable. I need preparation before major changes are made, because when new things are sprung on me out of no where without warning, or consultation if it involves me directly, I flip out. I totally don't mean to though, so if you've ever been caught in the midst of it, I'm really sorry. I'm aware I don't like change, but when it happens and I had no idea it was coming, my natural reaction is...well, whatever you get! I had a situation here regarding my forums and it happened without anyone telling me, and I went absolutely nuts. I'm really thankful to higher staff, especially Audy, for communicating with me more and being understanding since then, like with my Spin Off forum being made into a subforum. I really appreciate it...I hope someone sees this haha.

                          - Large crowds/public speaking. Social anxiety, enough said. :P

                            If there's anything that would scare me, it would be losing my mind & thus losing control over my own actions.

                            Really though, I would not like the prospect of having some kind of really bad mental disease that puts me as clinically insane, & thus have no control over myself. If that were to happen, death would only be mercy.

                              I have a serious case of mephobia, as defined by UD as the "Fear of becoming so awesome that the human race can't handle it and everyone dies."

                              Please refrain from any derogatory responses; this is a serious ailment I suffer with each and every day of my life.
