Day 11 of 30 Day Challenge

What Am I Afraid Of?

I have the typical fears: bugs & spiders (but only if they're touching me!), tragedies affecting my loved ones, disasters, really high heights, etc.

But my largest fear is asphyxiation. I used to think I had claustrophobia (fear of small spaces), however I realized I was not fearful of the space, I was fearful of running out of air!! It takes a lot of mind-over-matter for me to go on an airplane. I do not like diving deep under water. I do not think I would ever be able to scuba dive, go in a submarine, or travel to space. 

At least my fear does not affect my everyday life :)

Lots of Lovin' Weekend Blog Hop


  1. Interesting, I am the SAME way! I don't like swimming in the deep end, scuba diving? Forget it. I went in the submarine ride at Disneyland and hyperventilated as a child. Yeah, definitely just not my thing. I have had a dream of being shut in a coffin. Waking up from that one was not pleasant.
