MY BIGGEST FEAR

Those that know me well know that my biggest fear is EARTHQUAKES. And yes, it has a scientific name SEISMOPHOBIA.  The term comes from the Greek word SEISMOS (ΣΥΣΜΟΣ) meaning earthquake or war and can you guess what the Greek God of fear was called. Yep, you got it, PHOBOS (ΦΟΒΟΣ.)

The reason I’m bringing this up now, as yet again is another big earthquake hit 6.2 magnitude killing many and nearly destroying a whole town.
Here’s more about that breaking story. Sky News

Yes I’ve been in Earthquakes before and of course you’re scared for your like and your family’s and you have a fear of your house being nothing but ruble. This is rational. What’s not rational is screaming out for your husband, rocking on the bed and hysterically bawling while the bed or chair is shaking.

I blame my fear of all the disaster movies like 2012 and for my hubby, who by the way built my home, telling me that if we had a large quake the house would crumble.

So what fear to you have? And what do you think caused your fear?

  1. I don’t have a big fear anymore. I used to be very frightened of anything that fluttered.
    Irrationally so, if a bird fluttered by me, I’d have heart palpitations, I’d hyperventilate and shake. It was so out of control!
    The only way I got it under control was the knowledge that if I didn’t, I would pass it to my children. It took a long time, years. But I conquered it.

  2. Yes, I think it was – lol – when I was about 14 ish, I went to visit a friend who kept pigeons or birds and we went inside. Apparently he fancied me and thought he would have a clumsy go a being amorous, lol! I fought him off and the birds were disturbed and started fluttering and flying round. I wasn’t in any danger and didn’t feel threatened by him. But now I think of it that’s a great idea for a story! Lol

      1. Ha! That is another idea, but I was referring to what happened to you as a teen where you fought off his advances, that maybe you have already used that memory in one or more of your books. 😉

  3. No fears here. In fact so little that even when I should recognize that I might be in danger I don’t see it. My husband is good and watches out for me but he’s not always with me. Then again, the Bible says ‘fear not’ 365 times, once for each day of the year, except there is this extra
    leap day once every four years. Think I should be afraid on Feb. 29th?
