Thread rules: None, really.

If something worries you more than it worries the average person, feel free to post it here so that the caring, supportive Chiefsplanet community can comfort you.



I'll start.

I have two worries related to my health club.

First, I go into the health club and change into my gym rat gear. For some reason, I always have to stop and mentally check to be sure that I'm in the locker room before removing my pants, as opposed to absentmindedly wandering up to the weights area. I occasionally get lost in thought and go on autopilot, and it would be very embarrassing to start removing my clothes in a public area.

Related to that, when I go to the locker room at my health club, they always have the TV showing basketball. I never watch basketball. Ever. So I listen to basketball commentating while I take off my clothes. I have a small worry that at some point I'll get trained in a Pavlovian way to take off my pants whenever I hear a basketball game being announced. That too could cause me problems in public.

I also worry that, when I get a haircut, I'll have a big zit on the back of my head or something that will gross out the haircut lady, and she'll tell other haircut people about it, and every time I go in, they'll snicker and refer to me as "the head zit guy".

Not so much a worry, but whenever I'm near the edge of a tall height or long fall, I always think about plunging myself off the edge to my sure death below.

I go to a barber where a russian girl and an older guy from Turkey cut hair. I've only been a regular there for about 3 months. The Turkey guy is a freaking genious at haircuts. I started off going to the Russian girl. One day she was at lunch and I decided to try this guy and he is leaps and bounds better than the girl. So I guess I'm worried I'll hurt the little girls feelings, next time I go in.

I have an irrational fear of other people falling from high places. I can't stand to watch someone peering over the edge of a cliff, for instance. Oddly, I have no problem doing such things myself.

Like Adept, I have a fear of disaster. While I'm not a survivalist, I find myself purchasing things like flashlights and batteries and emergency radios. I have probably 4-6 flashlights that I've never opened and yet still find myself in that aisle at the store. If we ever have a natural disaster here in Albuquerque I'll be all set for bottled water, canned food, weather radios and flashlights. And I'll kill anybody who tries to get my flashlights.

Is that irrational?

I may get some details screwed up, but this is how I remember it....

I saw a medical show where this woman was on vacation in Costa Rica and when she returned home, she went to her doctor complaining about this pain in her scalp. Turns out she was bit by some sort of insect that lays an egg when it bites. (?) The doctor parts her hair at the bite, and she has a quarter-inch hole on her scalp with a living worm-like creature living in it. The doctor covers the hole with petroleum jelly to force the ****er out, and gets it with tweezers. I swear that SOB was easily 3/4 of an inch wide and 2 inches long.

*shudder*

strange. i have had somewhat the same experience at times. i went up in the ww1 memorial tower and had trouble w/that feeling. not so much as wanting to jump, but wondering what it would be like to fall to my death. and also scared some unseen hand would push me over. i also had this type of experience down at the state capitol and on a big ferris wheel at celebration city. plus i'm scared to death whenever i ride a big rollercoaster, it will break down on the way up the first big hill and i'll have to walk down the stairs on the side.

You had to use a fly swatter to get them out of the air, and then once they were on the ground you had to smash it 2-3 times with a shoe to kill it.

Ugh... It's a horrible feeling for that split second before he moves and everything is great again.


That's not being irrational, that's being a dad. Check on your boy as often as you want and don't feel weird about it. It takes time.

That isn't that irrational.

I may get some details screwed up, but this is how I remember it....

I saw a medical show where this woman was on vacation in Costa Rica and when she returned home, she went to her doctor complaining about this pain in her scalp. Turns out she was bit by some sort of insect that lays an egg when it bites. (?) The doctor parts her hair at the bite, and she has a quarter-inch hole on her scalp with a living worm-like creature living in it. The doctor covers the hole with petroleum jelly to force the ****er out, and gets it with tweezers. I swear that SOB was easily 3/4 of an inch wide and 2 inches long.

*shudder*

I'll try to find the story.....


Thanks....I'm never leaving Kansas again

The brown recluse infestation I have is bad enough in the summer...I'd rather fight those fuggers

I ALWAYS wash my hands, but joe shmoe over there takes a dump and walks out...fug that...I always use a paper towel or my foot to open the door on the way out. If I am going in, I HAVE TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GO FIRST...then i just jump in right behind them

If it's any consolation, my eleven year old went through the exact same thing as your son; and I went through the same thing as you are. :)

Today, he's a vibrant, enthusiastic, passionate, full-of-life, joyful man-boy....who is also, at times, a pain-in-the-butt, obnoxious, and completely normal in just about every way you can think of...defender, and bully, of his younger three siblings.

And he's already demonstrating strong conservative ideological tendencies as well.....heh. :D

Morphius' mom is like a public restroom...it's best to let someone else open her door and then charge in, before you drop your load make sure to clean her off from the previous visitor, and a plunger is available if things get out of hand

I do that when I'm listening to talk radio. If a caller is really bad I start to get embarrassed for them and have to change the station.

Also, your avatar is terrifying. Normal size clowns are scary enough, giant floating clowns are off the charts.

Not so much a worry, but whenever I'm near the edge of a tall height or long fall, I always think about plunging myself off the edge to my sure death below.
I feel this way sometimes. It's not that you want to jump, but it feels like a compulsion to me.

I get very nervous/afraid for people on TV in certain situations and I have to change the channel.
Yeah, when I watch the first48 and a family is being told the bad news, when they freak out I feel uneasy and change it.



To add some things:

I fear rollercoasters breaking and me falling. It's weird because I haven't always felt this way, and I have a lot of respect for science and engineering thus knowing how safe the rides really are. The same goes for airplanes.

I also developed an issue with not being able to pee with ppl around me. It started at a Cubs/Sox game. I wanted to hurry so I wouldn't hold the line up, and then I just couldn't go. I'm don't feel selfconsious about peeing in front of ppl, but since that incident it still happens.

Gee, don't I feel better now.

I don't fear flying, much, but I am sick to death during takeoff. During those first few minutes I am a mess.

And if I'm flying with one of those pilots who likes to make his turn mere feet off the runway, I damn near pass out.

Pull some ogvernment loophole shit.
actually, he wouldn't -- I believe he's counting the days until he can ride the quadrunner full-time. It would be the puppeteers who would engineer it.

I hate the immediate turns as well. Other than that, I only have one concern when flying. As long as the pilot gets that right, I don't care how bumpy the ride was.

Being on anti-depressants, i worry about a ton of stuff. Firstly, i constantly worry that everybody doesnt like me much. Lack of motivation is what really worries me the most. Im afraid that if i try something, im going to not be motivated to do it anymore, so i dont even try. Thats why i just started school back in this past semester. Im all sorts of ****ed up... And this isnt a joke, these are my real worries, so no making fun now...

Hang in there, dude.

One of the hardest things for me to learn in life was to not worry too much about what other people think or whether they like me. If you can get over that, it frees you up to be yourself and ironically makes it more likely that other people will like you.

I worry that one of these days when I'm hiking with my kids in the mountains a mountain lion is going to try to get one of them. I've started carrying mace and a big knife on our hikes just in case. I realize the odds of this occurring are incredibly small, but then you read stuff like this...

I also share the fear of the compulsion to jump off of high places. It's freaky, put it's like I can feel gravity pulling me over a balcony and down.
