    I know I've said that I'm scared of Zombies, but something that I'm really scared of is getting Alzheimer's and losing all my memory. My Grandfather from my dad's side died from it and my grandfather from my mom's side has it; and I suspect my dad has it too. My memory is my most prized possession and I don't want to forget anything that I've experienced or lived. What about you guys what's something that you're really scared of?

    I thought about this for awhile.


    The thing that came to mind first is getting old.


    The age in numbers doesn't mean anything, old to me is when you can no longer take care of yourself.


    I dread that day, but it is coming.

    My biggest fear is definitely sharks. I freaked out on the beach when i scraped my stomach. I wasn't even bleeding, but i still refused to go back in. I'm probably going to avoid the first few swim calls they have on my ship. And the first time i do partake, i'll be swimming in the middle of a group of people so hopefully someone on the edge will get picked off first

    My biggest fear is being incapacitated and unable to care for myself without any family or loved ones around.

    taking care of myself and independence are huge deals for me. losing that ability is a frightening prospect indeed.

    No question about it....DISABILITY. When I cant take care of myself. I cant see anyone, who might be willing to take care of me. No bf, lover even my sibling. Hopefully I die a natural death before that happen.

    I have always been afraid of being homeless when I am older and now I worry about being abused as a gay senior citizen when the time comes.

    im afraid of being financially overwhelmed.
    As of late I've been living pay check to pay check...literally right down to the last $5 dollars.

    It scares me because what if a major expense comes up?? Like a car repair? or something like that. .
    I have credit cards and though they're not at their limit, I dont wanna get to that point, but im afraid I may have no other choice.

    i just read a book about the human mind's ability to picture something and be afraid of it. for instance, if you are coming home from a long day of hunting wooley mammoths, and you see your partner sprinting the other direction yelling something about "saber tooth coming!", you turn and run just as fast because your imagined saber tooth is as scary as the one your partner saw.

    it is our gift (and curse) as humans to fear our own imaginations. and even though we think highly of our ability to picture "what if" scenarios and plan ahead, truth is, things hardly ever turn out the way we imagine them.

    so, for most of us, the fears we have exist only in our imagination. there is no saber tooth, there is no imminent threat to our health...just a picture in our head. a vague picture at that.

    this is one of my favorite quotes:

    "Afterwards I learned, that the best way to manage some kinds of painful thoughts, is to dare them to do their worst; to let them gnaw at your heart till they are tired; and you find you still have a residue of life they can not kill."

    we all have our own worst fears...and, by their very nature, they are unspeakable. they are THE WORST. yet, at the end of the day, they are imagined. we are afraid of inventions of our own minds.
