Default Biggest Fear in Life!

Would anyone like to share their biggest fear in life?

I have two-over achiever even in this=

1. Never getting to visit/live in the two of the places I grew up.One is a lovely little town and the other is a state clear across the country.

2. When I get old, looking back or thinking is this all there was? There is so much I want to do with my life that I'm scared I will never get to do.

I do not fear death, I don't fear God. My biggest fear is something bad happening to my children.

I think of life as a movie theater. We watch a great story and become a part of it. Hopefully the story ends on a good note, and not unfinished. I do not want to sit and watch the credits roll on forever. When I get up to leave that story, and walk through the dark corridor to the exit, the doors open and I once again join in the life I came from. I occasionally think of that movie and its participants.

I'm terrified that I will outlive my son or grandsons...I could NEVER live through that!

I'm also terrified that my ending will come if I drown...I'm SO scared of deep water and can't swim so I hope of all the ways you can end your life, it won't be by drowning...

My biggest fear is losing my children, in any possible way. I worry about illness, kidnapping, accidents...anything.

Second biggest is going completely blind and not watching my children grow up.

Escalators!

When I was a kid I saw an episode of 'Recue 911' were a child got caught in an escalator http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5c9e6uAUF8

I don't have kids yet but my pets are like my kids and I have had night mares were they were seriously injured or sick and I was afraid of having to put them down. I have also had dreams were I cant take care of them anymore or for some reason canot have pets and I have to give them up (that one has actually happened 2x when I was a kid)

One of my fears is that if I get married have kids my husband will either divorce me or die and I will have to care for my kids as a single parent on only one salary- that is mostly because my mom was a single mom and had to work 2 jobs alot and on her days off she kept going to bingo and she would also try to live above her means (like leasing furniture, cars, flat screen tvs) and most of the time would have to end up getting them repoed or people calling us and coming to our door and I was always afraid we were going to get evicted or not have enough food to eat.

This is so easy for me. Dying young and leaving my kids without a mother. Pretty morbid, huh? I think about this all the time. It seems I am hearing more and more young people in their 30's getting dx with some sort of cancer and it scares the he** out of me!

Losing more babies. I've lost three of my four pregnancies and every time I go in for an ultrasound for this baby I prepare myself to see another dead baby.

Dying and leaving my kids by themselves. Granted they have their father and grandparents but no one is as good as mom is. all the more reason to spend as much time i can with them now. Tomorrow is a different day anything can happen.

I try to put no pictures, do facebook, and remain as anonamous as possible. I actually googled my name one time and 1 thing came up (my address) but it took awhile because there are a ton of people with my name.

I googled my a shortened version of my business name and tons came up but none where me as it was a shortened version. I googled my full business name and one thing came up (my address), nothing more.

I googled my good friends name-9 pages came up for them!!!! They are the only one in the country with that name and they were astonished as they try and lay low. Guess what-that was a no go.

I have a fear of elevators, but my biggest fear is losing my children or my husband. I couldn't even imagine ever losing my kids.

I fear losing any of my family members. I also fear death. Not so much death itself but I just don't want to be alone when it happens. I also worry about my family and friends that are around when my time comes.

Other than that and heights...I am pretty much fearless

My biggest fear would be something horrible happening to my kids.

My smaller fears would be water I can't see in like lakes, rivers, etc & looking out windows at night (I'm scared someone will be looking back at me)! I have faced those fears and swam in the ocean or water ski in lakes but they are still there. When I went skiing as soon as I fell I would pull my skis up to my tush & kind of sit on them, too funny! I couldn't stand to let them dangle lol What's strange is I have spent a good part of my life on water & nothing bad ever happened, I just can't shake that scared feeling.

I went with my fiance's family to pick up his aunt at the airport and they had escalaters and I told them to go without me because they went from the first leve to the third level and we need to get to the 4th level (which had more escalators) and we didn't see any stares but luckly there was a elevator and DF went with me but he was freaking out the whole time because it was a glass elevator and you can see the whole airport from it.

I can relate, somewhat. I've only lost one, very very early one, I didn't even know about it. But I've gotten some frank news about my fibroids and it really does scare me. I don't even want to be pregnant anymore, i just want the baby to hurry and be born....

My biggest fear is dying young while my children still need me. their father is not competent enough to raise them
and it scares me to think such a thing.

2 fears

1. Something happening to my daughter. She has a liver/lung condition and I do not even want to imagine anything happening to her. God bless those of you who have lost children. I am in awe of your strength.

1. Something happening to me while my daughter is young and needs me. She has a wonderful father and grandparents, but they could not replace having a mom.

Failure.
I've lived my whole life thus far trying to be good enough and trying to do right. My biggest fear is that I'll fail at everything I ever try.

Other than that...alligators. and I live in kansas...
