What are you afraid of?....Failure?.....Bancruptcy?....Premature Ejaculation?....Clowns?...We all are afraid of something! I have a fear of offending people, even though I can be quite abrasive at times, I know in my heart that I don't mean things the way they come out . But my big mouth has gotten me my share of pissed off people in my day. Some people don't like to fly...
Aerophobia! Some people don't like to be confined...Claustrophobia! Those that know me at all know that I also suffer from ...Emetophobia, the fear of vomiting..I have not puked since I was 12 years old, I hate pukers, and all talk of puke ( except Jenn of course )! But we all are afraid of something, and I'd like to know what that fear is...We are not alone you know, famous people past and present have well publicized fears. For example....
