Re: Does anything make you uncomfortable? Fear?

Several things that have already been mentioned make me uncomfortable and downright fearful. One that I can't shake is my fear of drowning. I can't swim so that makes it worse. Next year I will be traveling to Australia for vacation and the thought of that long flight over all of that water is starting to put me on edge. I am a person that travels frequently, so it's not the plane ride. It's the thought of the plane crashing into the ocean. I am convinced that for the first time in my life before my trip I will have to visit the doctor for some sot of anxiety medication.

@icezeus    Since you have a year until your trip, go to the YWCA  or a local gym that has a pool  and take some swim lessons for adults.... it would be good for you. They probably have both priviate and group classes.  It would be a wonderful thing to accomplish and would make your fear of drowning and flying over the ocean less tramatic for you I would think. 

 

I was very forturate as a child that my parents made me take swim lessons as a very young child. I grew up after that swimming my entire life in the lake by my home in the summer.   I never realized that people did not know how to swim until I had a girlfriend in school who told me she could not swim.  I just thought everyone could swim.

@blingqueen023...  I am fine in Montgomery County (except for that darn Beltway).

 

DC is another story.

Being alone around very weird acting people. They make me nervous and uneasy about what they may do next.

Re: Does anything make you uncomfortable? Fear?

Nothing actually causes real fear (so far).

The following make me uncomfortable:

1. people standing in "my immediate space"

2. people arguing in public places

3. overly aggressive or hard-sell salespeople; keep it to the facts 

4. Insurance people who don't realize I'm capable of making decisions myself!! Why would I need to "check with my son?" That comment has blown my mind and offended me a couple of times in the last few weeks!  Don't they realize my husband and I taught him the basics of everything he knows?? 

5. Three mice in our commons area a few years ago! I set traps and killed them before they found my yards. Smiley Very Happy
