Snakes for me a few years ago getting in the car in the garage I saw a snake on the floor.  Made me glad to have a bag or my undies would of needed changing.

Yes and them!  Had a whopping great dugite (quite deadly WA bastards) hanging out in the back yard a while back.....nothing a quick thwack across the head with a shovel couldn't fix!!!  Oh the joys of Australian venomous wildlife, hey!!!

I like to think I'm fearless, but when it comes down to it and I think about it, I have a fear of falling. Not just tripping and hitting the ground, I've done that drunk many times. I mean falling like off a roof and anything that has a long distance to go. There for you will NEVER find me sky diving!

I also have an ostomy fear of an explosion happening when I'm at some shing-ding all prettied up trying to be on my best behavior. I always carry medical tape with me just in case....

Hi MMSH, about a year ago a doctor was cardioverting a patient from a rapid abnormal heart rate hopefully to a normal rate they use a machine that delivers a shock to the heart which stops the heart for a second and when it restarts in a normal rate & rhythm,  he asked me to turn the patient to the side he (wanted to shock back to front), He is suppose to look and say  clear 3 times, needless to say he didn't!! and the shock went into my body via the hand  the good thing about this is the patient was not harmed - was shocked again and converted nicely - the 2nd. best thing is when he shocked the 1st. time my hand flew back and whacked him in the face That was a Kodak moment.  I will remember your information it seems like I get shocked alot probaly no more than any one else I just think so because I hate it so much!

YES!!!  That is something else as far as my fears go...the shark thing....good lord yeah....ever since I was a little girl I have had re-occurring nightmares of being on a huge ship that is slowly sinking and getting swallowed up by black waters and there are people screaming all around me, and I actually feel as though I experience drowning in that dream, the fear, growing weak from struggling in the icy water, trying to keep my nose above water and the huge ship like a mountain sinking only feet away from me...then the sudden tug on my leg as I get pulled straight down so fast and the muffled noises and bubbles..

...a shark has me and the last thing I recall before waking is looking up to see the kicking legs of other people below the surface of the water as I am being pulled farther below them....I wake up shaking and my pillow is usually damp from sweat, it's horrible ...VERY upsetting.  Where that comes from or why I would have such dreams I don't know, but that is why I have mentioned to friends that I am scared to death of what I call "big water"  .... I prefer to stick to my Wisconsin lakes and rivers......unless I know I can SAFELY see the ocean one day...but I'd be a bit nervous about it lol.

Something I always dream about, and its not as bad as it seems NOW but at the time, wowee. I was at the pain clinic (a good name) . In any event the doctor had placed about a dozen acupuncture needles in me that were hooked up to a machine which they gradually increased the voltage. In my case the Doc forgot to turn back the volume of the TENS unit and when he turned it on I was bouncing like I was in the DT's. he immediately turned the machine off and ended my therapy for the day, then the blame game started, when he blamed the nurse she wasn't taking any shit from him as she told him she just came on shift. He asked her who was the last one to use the machine, she sweetly said, why it was you doctor, it was funny listening to him try to squirm out of it. And for all of this I had to travel 300 miles, 150 both ways. And this was only one of the misfortunes I encountered at the pain clinic, enough for now. Ed.
