I THOUGHT I WOULD START A DISCUSSION ON FEARS!!! MY BIGGEST FEAR IS (MIGHT SOUND RIDICULIOUS) BUT IT IS A FEAR OF HAVING A ALLERGIC REACTION TO FOOD!!! I DON'T NO WHEN THIS STARTED BUT I USED TO EAT ANYTHING BUT PROBABLY FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS OR SO I HAVE STOPPED EATING FOODS THAT I HAVEN'T HAD FOR AGES. I THINK THAT IF I EAT THESE FOODS THAT MY THROAT WILL SWELL UP & I WILL DIE. I NO IT'S TOTALLY IRRATIONAL WELL SOMETIMES!!! I DON'T EAT AT RESTRAUNTS WHERE I'VE NEVER EATEN BEFORE AT DON'T EAT AT FRIENDS HOUSES EITHER AS I DON'T NO WHAT'S IN THE FOOD!!!! PLEASE VENT YOUR FEARS SO WE CAN SHARE THEM.....THIS IS MY SECRET NOBODY NO'S ABOUT THIS IN MY FAMILY OR FRIENDS...... [img]

My therapist just asked me to bring her my top 10 fears next time I come back to her office. We are going to do what is called "flooding." That is when she takes me to the thing that causes me aniety and makes me have an attack so she can show me how to get out of it/prevent it.

Here's my list:

Bridges

Expressway

Wal-Mart

Mall

Driving

Night time

Elevators/ 2 story buildings

Traffic

Crowds of people

Being/Sleeping alone

Biggest fear? So many! Being home alone used to upset me, better these days.

Throwing up scares me because when I was a child I couldn't stop once and my parents took me to the hospital and it was very unpleasant (I was very sick as it was I had been throwing up for days).

I hate being "in the spotlight" and observed. My perception of this is warped I know sometimes going to walmart makes me feel like everyone is staring at me and I have to leave
