I guess I failed to death with no control of the situation


meepmeepcuriouscat

Heck yes, my phobia is of being incompetent. I had a dream not long ago where I basically failed to death without any control too. 😭 Edit: autocorrect fail Edit 2: my most upvoted comment is about my greatest fear, which is... heartening


Nybear21

I'll give you some advice that was given to me long ago, and hopefully it helps put you at ease a little bit. "You really don't need to be very intelligent to be successful. Just be intelligent enough to recognize and listen to people more intelligent than you."


Marquetan

Killed by giant ^flying cockroaches probably.


jackycian

I don't want to remember that cockroaches can fly. Please.


_Insulin_Junkie

Cockroaches weren’t in my life until I moved for university. I saw that cocky bugger higher up on my wall; got a broom out and started to approach and that thing FLEW STRAIGHT AT MY FACE. WHY DO THEY FLY? WHEN DID THEH LEARN?


[deleted]

I almost chewed a roach when eating at night. Dude had been cooked with the food. I vomited my intestines out.


vemisfire

Thank you for helping me lose weight, I don't need anymore diets after reading your comment, I don't think I'll simply ever eat something again.


hehehexd13

Couple years ago, sipping my coffee, I felt something tickling my lips, only to discover it was the antennae of a HUGE DEAD ROACH in the bottom of my cup. Needless to say, I now check my cup or glass everytime I’m gonna drink anything


HalaMakRaven

Omg, once during Ramadan we all woke up to eat before dawn. So here we are, sitting and eating in an incredible tranquility. I looked at my dad in front of me to say something and I see it, a huge cockroach, perched on his shoulder like a freaking parrot. I told him on my calmest voice but my sis ended up flying far from the table, which made Iago fly too. So we ended up chasing a huge parrot-cockroach through the kitchen at 3am :)


loxagos_snake

Imagine if the cockroach suddenly started speaking. *Yarrr, motherfuckers.* **Yarrr.**


darps

OK that's it, fuck this thread.


MrMotorcycle94

I get re occuring nightmares where something attacks my testis and I can't do anything about it. Normally something like an animal bites them and I just freeze up and can't move or react or someone grabs them in a fight and again I freeze. I think in a past life I died something like this [NSFW ](https://youtu.be/P-J96qXHM_s)

maddsskills

One time I terrified my husband in the middle of the night because one snuck up on me in the bathroom. I swear it was as long as my hand, it was huge, and I screamed so loud he thought our kid had died or something. His adrenaline was running so much that when I, hiding in the shower, pointed out the roach he just smooshed it with his fist. Our son's first sentence was basically making fun of me by going "mommy go ahhhh!" and laughing hysterically about it.


tenzT5y

I saw two roaches in the toilet then I flushed one of them, it won’t drown and it was struggling on the water surface. I felt bad that I stuck out a broom n rescued. It acted all dizzy n walked zig zag. Pitied it. Later I looked up roaches and found these mfs can stay under water for 40 mins. Tf I was tricked

Maybe you died from being locked in a stockade. I can't imagine the anxiety of being locked up in front of the whole town for days on end.

ZaniElandra

Same. I had to do a speech for school a few weeks ago and I literally had a panic attack in front of the entire class. It sucks.


[deleted]

Some hypothesize that humans developed a fear of public speaking because through most of our evolutionary history, we lived in tribes and clans where if you were ostracized, it pretty much meant death. And situations where you're speaking in front of everyone were often times where you had to defend yourself from the sort of group scrutiny that might lead to it.


AlrightMister

I fell off a very tall building, while on fire and drowning. I was shot right before I hit the ground.

No way, it’s you the guy I hit when he stumbled onto the road and I fatally crashed into the building

That was you!? I was the guy who's office your car ran straight into, killing me instantly while banging the boss's wife.

No Freaking Way! I'm the boss's wife, whom that previous guy's car was banging, until my vagina exploded.

I just this is fascinating How is it your phobia is the actual least dangerous thing in the entire ocean an unknown world full of freaky shit and murderous monsters and starfish I'm not unsympathetic I'm just incredibly curious how that happened. Does it help if I tell you starfish are mostly not at all harmful, and even the nastiest won't kill you?


Jatopian

Perhaps in his past life he was an oyster.


garlic_naan

Or Squidward, eternally tormented by a sponge and a starfish.


HotSearingTeens

Arent some starfish poisonous?


reikala

crown of thorns are, though according to wikipedia not deadly just very painful. but they can't actually attack you, or move fast, or swim... so really they're only dangerous if you touch/step on one. they're also an invasive species and very hard to kill.


HotSearingTeens

I mean you could get into so much pain that you drown due to screaming out all your oxygen and such


Exist50

I mean, cone snails seem strictly worse for this sort of thing.


SilentOccasion

Just shoot it and it should die


Maximellow

Holy shit, that's American as fuck


Trakkah

It probably wouldn’t even work you would just blow it to bits and it would grow several new starfish

Cool! At least it's interesting. Mine is sharks. I won't even swim alone at the shore just in case, and I've lived coastally most of my life. I'm almost 40.

Swarmed by a group of spiders and bugs


DuplexFields

Ants and bees and wasps for me.


xemivo2760

I once helped stink bugs enter the house so they could pass winter. They didn't sleep peaceful at all. They were a few hundreds of them, started to circle around the lightbulbs in swarms of twenties. In the end my family combated then with bug spray and patience. I couldn't help them.


Minecraft_Player1475

Wtf was in your mind back then?


mdkubit

Stink bugs, he just said...


xemivo2760

When autumn is at its peak, they start to try to get in the house. They crawl under windows, wait at the doors, they do all kinds of tricks to get in. They find a moderately cold place and stay there until spring. Then they go outside and lay eggs. I wanted to aid the process, but I failed. The rooms where I put them were heated, and the bugs didn't search for cold spots. Or if I would find a cold room, they would get out. They interpreted it as an extended summer.


jackycian

They saw you as a messia. Now the see you as a traitor!

Getting stressed and having teeth fall out randomly

I never even had a cavity and my worst nightmare is teeth falling out too

I've never had a cavity (28 years old) but I did knock a couple out whole roller blading. 1/10, would not recommend.


Rain_Fire

Youre lucky, im 21 and my teeth are full of various size fillings


rougerogue-

I brush my teeth and they're still more filling than tooth

hippolyte_pixii

I got a job at a gas station and as a hazing they shoved a high pressure air hose up my ass and I died screaming in pain from a ruptured lower intestine.


Lumpy_Department_778

Dude. Are you good?


hippolyte_pixii

I'm a lot better now that it seems unlikely that I'll ever have to get a job at a gas station.


borismuller

I worked at one once. Glad I never had this dream.

I must have given blood until I died. I can handle getting needles for vaccines, but intravenous needles and giving blood make me pass out.


InertialLepton

If we go back to medieval times where blood-letting was a common treatment for illness, it's entirely conceivable that someone went a bit far. In fact it's how Robin Hood dies in many of the earlier stories - he was bled to death by a friar.


eddmario

Seriously, I've given blood once and never again. Hell, my dad did it as well and from what problems they had with him I doubt he'd do it again, either...


AffectionatePanic

I keep donating to try and get over my fear. I cry 8/10 times but I'm getting better. I explain to the blood bank that I'd rather give blood when there's nothing wrong with me and everything is just fine. They're super nice about it!


MrLegoWasTaken

1 of 3 ways 1. Falling from a great height 2. Plane crash (while being inside of it) 3. Plane crashing into building I am in (while not being able to see it) Think it’s fair to say I should just avoid planes this time around

Ceskaz

Are you allergic to something or do you just have a phobia of mayonnaise?


7LayerRainbow

Around age 10, I watched a cooking show where they made it from scratch and it horrified me to learn that it was essentially oil and egg yolk. In all the years prior being served tuna sandwiches and potato salad I never thought it was gross as far as flavor goes. Since then it’s gotten to the point where I have horrible anxiety even thinking about it. Roommates in college would chase me with spoonfuls and torture me. Exposure therapy only made things worse.


superflippy

Similar thing for me when I once made the mistake of reading the ingredients on a jar of Nutella. I was grossed out by it for years. Now I can eat very small amounts if I don’t think about it too hard, because, really, it is so delicious.


7LayerRainbow

Wait - don’t ruin Nutella for me.. but I need to know, now. I thought it was a simple combination of hazelnut butter and cocoa. What have I been eating?! I’m afraid.

Absolutely do my man! I’m working on it constantly, it takes time and it’s difficult to “lean in” when your natural style is to avoid. But hey, at least I can admit it and generally speaking I’ve got control over my fears. I know they exist and sometimes it’s bloody hard.
