January 4, 2007 5:15pm CST
hi all, i have faced by biggest fears of all time in the last year, i had a big fear of just going to see the doctors, i feared having blood tests, i feared haven my blood pressure taken as i used think my arm would explode when they pump the pressure silly really i know, i feared hospitals aswell, and also feared i was going to die young hope this one doesnt come true though. then one day i had a shock of my life, i had to go to the doctors as i was in terrible pain the doctor said i had yellowing of the skin and dark urine, and had to have blood tests taken, and found out the same day that somethink was wrong so then i was rushed to hospital to have further tests and to then find there was a high risk to my liver and that i had gallstones that they were stuck causing this pain and problems inside me, it was then decided the best option for me was to have my gallbladder removed i was very worried about this surgery especially not waking up after being given the anesthetic to put me to sleep while the surgery is being done all this happened in a matter 1 week, had about 7-8 blood tests within that week, this was a nightmare for me and all my fears rolled into one, have you ever had to face your fears? be nice to hear from you.

i have so many fears but the two that really stick out for me are one day meeting my abuser the last time i was in a state of shcok weeks before and was unable to control or do anything about it (i was abused as a child ) and the second is to remember the events to having my memory block out my past i dont ever want to have those memories or to have to relive then once again

It is good that you faced your fears and I hope that everything is ok now. I on the other hand have a terrible fear of flying. I don't know if I will ever get in a plane, at this point I doubt it. My family can not believe that I have this fear as my father is a pilot. They always tell me, he makes it home all the time what are you afraid of? I just will not get in a plane.

my greatest fear last year - my greatest fear last year was to fall inlove again. worst, to someone i haven't met yet. but it's all worth it. and i am so happy and lucky right now.
i am so sorry to hear about your situation. i hope you get well soon. my boyfriend's bladder was removed as well years before and he's more than okey now. and i hope you get to feel better soon, too. my greatest fear last year was to fall inlove with someone i never met before. i met my boyfriend through the internet. we had 5 months to get to know each other by beings friends. then, later, we decided to give the relationship a chance to blossom into something better. iw as so scared since i had been dumped by my ex boyfriends before because of third parties. and now, i am in this long distance relationship for 9 months now. we spent two good weeks together last november and it was really fun to be with him. and i know i did the right choice. to fall inlove with him and make him a part of my life. and i am glad i did not let that great fear of mine to block my way to happiness.

My biggest LIFE fear is making the wrong decisions, but there is no way around that, because obsessing is crappy, too. My biggest EXTERNAL fear is probably having spiders on me. and no, i don't really feel like i have to face that one.

First of all, congratulations on facing such difficult fears. I can't say that I know what it is like to have my gallbladder removed, but I am so glad that you had the tests done and were able to have it taken care of before things got even worse. I am personally trying to face up to more of my fears in 2007. I have spent a lifetime being incredibly shy, and my shyness has only increased in these last few years to the point that I have decided that my life finally has to change. Today I wrote to some people (not counting on Mylot.. I've been typing like crazy on here, but it's not the same because I don't really know the people here and I don't really expect a reply most of the time *laugh*) and took some brave steps that it was quite hard for me to do, and I am feeling nervous. But I also feel proud that I was able to do a few things outside of my comfort zone. ^_^ Thanks for your thoughtful discussion! ^_^

I bet you were scared. The clost I have come to that was when I first had duble vision from my ms and I was going numb a lot and the first nerologist I went to told me there was something on the base of my brain and to come back in 6 months. I got mad and scared and called a hosptial out of my town get a referl in another center the first time this doctor saw my mri papers he told me it looked like ms which i had asked the first doctor I saw and he said he didn't think so. Anyhow finally after 6 months i was finally dignosed with ms

I also feared having blood tests taken and about 3 months ago I had to get my first one done. I'm still a little scared everytime I go because for the fact that I HATE needles, but it's not as bad as I thought it would be.

My biggest fear right now is that i'm going to fail the tests in the university next month... I guess i'll have to deal with them in order to success...

The older I get, the more fears I find that I have developed - and honestly, that fear causes some of the bad habits that I wish to get rid of. What amazes me is that these fears are often unfounded ... now I'm just trying to figure out how to undo the "walls" I've built up to try and protect myself from these so-called fears. Fun Fun :D
