I hope you’re having a lovely weekend!
My post for today is very random, I know. I was walking the other day and actually crossed the road so I wouldn’t have to walk under some scaffolding. It got me thinking “What else freaks me out this much?” and so I came up with a list.
These are the 10 things that I try to avoid like the plague.
Walking under scaffolding.
Yes, I’m afraid someone will drop a hammer or a whole person will fall on top of me.
Getting any sort of anesthesia.
People keep asking me if I’m afraid of giving birth and honestly, for now, my only fear is getting anesthesia. I’m not sure I want an epidural and it makes me very nervous to think about getting anesthesia in case I need a cesarean section. There’s something very scary about being sedated or not being in possession of my full capacities. Maybe that’s why I’ve never drank or taken drugs.
Oh the anxiety I get every time I have to get an x-ray or a CAT scan. It’s a nightmare. Just the little radiation danger signs give me the hibby jibbies.
Deep, dark water.
If I can’t see the bottom, I’m not getting in. And I’ll never ever jump from a high place into a pool, lake or river.
No idea why, they just scare me.
Answering calls from unknown numbers.
I’ll do the millennial thing and google the number before I take the call. I’m always afraid someone is calling me before something bad happened or somebody died.
They’re very dangerous and I wouldn’t ride one if you paid me good money.
The speed, the noise, the feeling. I hate it. I won’t stop travelling by plane anytime soon, but I can assure you I’ll be hating every minute.
What about you? What freaks you out?
Would love to read about it in the comments.
