Dying and finding out that heaven is real and all I had to do to get in was go confess my sins.

My greatest fear is not being able to always protect my child from heartache and the world.

I stopped being a slave to fear many years ago when I realised that it is real!

My greatest fear:

Not being able to take care of my wife.

She's 76 and I'm 71. She is in early Alzheimer's and needs a lot of help. I'm almost crippled with a back fusion and Arthritis.

Yeah, I know, a home. That will destroy what she has left and I can not do that.

This absolutely trerrifies me.

Non-existence. Call it narcissism, but I'm prone to existing. I hear atheists talk about having nothing to really fear, especially since we can't stop it anyway, but I think that is what makes it awful to me. It obviously stems from a fear of the unknown, but I think it also has to do with hope. If there is no afterlife, there is no hope. Why should I care? That's why I just try not thinking about it. I can't stop death from coming, so I want to make my mark on society. If my only way of living on is through my actions on Earth, so be it.

Don't worry about it if no one shows up you'll still be dead, & unaware of it.

As for myself,My worse fear is being crippled or dying slowly in A hospital bed. I used to work in construction I did a lot of high work ,Such as walking on I beams,swing stages & the like. People would ask me aren't you afraid of falling? No I would reply if you fall from that high your dead.
A short fall could leave you crippled now to me that's scarry. My 2nd. worse fear is going on stage or in public dressed in drag. A fear I hope to get over 1 day before I die.

Being alone with no one to care for me as I grow old and unable to help myself. Ending up dying on my own in a small flat with no one noticing I'm not around any more :/

I suppose I have many fears but there are two in the " what if basket " that if ever to happen and I couldn't control the outcome or question. ( that is scary)
1st Getting to an age that isn't old and losing my body functions but having my mind intact.
2nd Having to choose between my children. Like if we were in trouble and I had to save them but one at a time, with the unknown outcome.

My completely irrational/crazy/silly fear is being sucked into a black hole. A more realistic fear is being trapped inside my mind like a coma.

Right now my greatest fear is not being able to take care of my wife any more.

That scares the crap out of me.

My greatest fear is that I will suffer some debilitating disease that leaves me very much alive, with all my mental faculties, but totally incapable of playing music.

My second greatest fear is a debilitating stroke, that leaves me alive, but totally dependent on others.

The latter is a very real possibility; both my parents died of stroke. IF it kills me, that's okay; I just don't want to live as a vegetable or worse, mentally acute, but physically completely disabled.

I'm afraid of becoming unable to care for myself, of expressing myself. I worry about being bed bound and unable to express my wants. I've seen it happen time and again and it's always heartbreaking

Ironically, it's not death but the unknown, pain and regret that it connotes...

I often fear what comes after...is there heaven and hell? Nothingness? Or total silence and darkness?

I absolutely cannot handle pain.

Regret - something I did...something I didn't...

Aside from that -

I'm afraid of failure...yes, I know no one is perfect...but fear is a mental state of irrational thoughts...I hate the thought that I am not special...just a speck in the universe...unimportant, insignificant, mediocre...

Dreams - or is nightmares more appropriate? I've always been a bit imaginative and well...that's not always a good thing :(

Becoming a vegetable...not the garden variety either...

Forgetting...myself...my memories...the people I know...I fear dementia...

Insanity - though I confess there have been times when I've wondered whether I already am ;)

The death of those I love - not that I think those I don't should die...

Immortality...to live forever...and never be able to die - I mean that would be great and all but...I'd like the option...like if there was a choice...

To go blind - as I am afraid it is inevitable - I love literature like a ballet loves to dance - without it I am nothing (not to sound melodramatic - but I'm serious) I'd rather die...

Other than those...

Dying not death...

I am deathly afraid of rats, spiders, heights, horror movies, aliens, assorted barking dogs especially the Chihuahua kind, ghosts, over-friendly people who smile a lot and give compliments.

I have a paranoid fear of attracting the attention of a psychopath killer...

...worms, bacteria, sharks, poop, smelly people, clowns, baby dolls...

And probably a hundred other things that I can't think of at the moment...

Yes...I seem to be afraid of a great deal of things - I'm a scared-ey cat...bite me :p






A tale of love and romance...

From New York to Yorkshire, eighteen year old Ever Carter meets Nicholas Howard - a man who personifies perfection.
In a whirlwind romance, Ever and Nicholas fall in love.
But not unlike real life, their story isn't perfect.

Failure...and loneliness.
