I remember growing up being terrified of "the grudge" kid and the freaky girl there. it was so sad when I was a kid I couldn't even go to the bathroom by myself... but I got over it. but when I was 10yrs. old I stayed with my friends next door for new years eve coz only old people were at my home that time... I went back to my house around 1am, but no one would answer the door, no one can hear the doorbell or me knocking, the party probably ended at 5am but I gave up hours before that time came, i spent my whole new year's eve in the car covered with a blanket, remembering how people always say there's a ghost wearing a black cape going around our neighborhood at night. that was the worst new year of my life! now I just get scared of heights and i get stage fright, but i'm the type who embraces those kinds of fear and gets all excited. just not ghosts!

I'm afraid of heights. I try to concur them to no avail. I can climb high, but getting back down it the problem. If I look down I'm in trouble. I climbed a fire tower and had to scoot all the way back down the steps on my bottom. My legs were shaking so bad I could not stand up. Talk about embarrassing. It's not a moment in my life I want to relive. When I was young all I was afraid of was not having anyone love me. And not having a home. We were bounced around from this place to that one, sometimes not knowing the people. They wanted a girl or a boy in their family. We, (my 2 brothers and I) were split up and stayed just where ever. People did not keep any of us long. There was not any connection and no hands on hugs or anything. So, to me I just wanted a home and someone to love me. I also wanted friends. I have no friendships that last more than a month or 2 that I can look back on. I guess this is why my computer and having you all to talk to is very important to me. You all are really all I have.

you're scared with that kid and the lady with brittle bones from the grudge movie?? ^__^;; i've watched that movie one late night and the lights were off. it was a creepy movie but not creepy enough to scare me. i think the Ring is much more creepier. Sadako is much more creepier. anyway, to answer your question, there's a lot that scares me actually but only during times that my imagination is running wild. most of the times, when i'm in a normal mode, i'm not scared of anything. i can even go to the bathroom in the middle of the night when everybody's sleeping and the lights are off. or go to the bathroom late at night having to walk in a deserted hallway in the office. the trick is, i don't let it get into my head. i think of other things, especially happy things, even irritating things just to prevent my mind from imagining freaky things. it works all the time. but there are times that i can't really stop myself from imagining things, especially if the situation is like from a horror movie. ^__^;;

i love Japanese horror films. very effective in giving me goosebumps. ^__^;; yeah, i've watched the Hollywood version of the ring too. its scary too but i prefer the Japanese version. its not just scary, the film has the total eerie-ness on it! i just so like it. did you know that the actress who played Sadako is the actress that played Yankumi in Gokusen?

oh they're really effective on giving me the goosebumps, alright! and i never noticed coz the only thing you see in sadako's face is one of her eye! how was i supposed to know that was her! and i understand about the eerie-nesses thingy i just watch it with my eyes covered and i scream if anyone screams!

i didn't know then too that it was yankumi! i only learned about it when a friend told me about it and i searched for it in the internet and discovered that my friend was telling the truth.

AW! That's a sad New Year's! I'm not all that fond of heights either.. Climbed our slanting roof to check something, but then froze when I turned around to go back down.. Promised God I'd never climb high again if he just got me down safely, yes, I thought I'd put in a little humor his way, and yes I got down safely and realized it's always easier going up..

yes, i did find that funny i also think that it's easier going up than going down, but i'm the type who likes embracing fear!

Oh no! I suppose skydiving and bungy jumping would appeal to you!? Anytime I see or hear about that I always think the same thing.. Not me!! I'm not even sure it's because of fear.. I just wouldn't like it! Course, if I was a fraidy cat on the little roof, I do suppose sky diving and bungy leaping would give me a really bad feeling in my tummy! Yep, that's enough for me! Just thinking about it is close enough to a thrill.. Both feet solid on the ground, that's my motto..

bungy jumping and skydiving sounds like a great idea! It'll probably look strange if i was devilishly grinning before i face my doom! things that scare me just seem to get me all heated up!

What really scares me is I don't like Thunder and Lighting, it scares me! I hate it when there is Loud thunder and lighting. I like for someone to be around so I won't be that scared.

What scares me is the chance of me being possessed by a evil spirit, its nearly happened once when visiting WoodChester Mansion in England by a bad spirit of a man who told me to do bad things to my Paranormal Team Members of course, I didnt follow but I was filled with pain during a vigual, My team said they could see him behind me and suddenly within seconds, the pain come in like my ribs were being torn apart and now Ive discovered that there's a bad spirit man in my house, apparently he hates chilren (now I fear for my son too who is only 11 Months old) and I have noticed ive been snappy lately, normally I aint this way but could be possession, its part of being Psychic but need to fight it psychically. Much Love to you all and never fear, just ask your angels for protection and all should be alright :)

There's no thing in the world that beats snakes out as the most fearful creature in my entire life. I hate them even the look of them. I guess it's already phobia. I'd rather be in the middle of a dark road, trying to fight the fear of ghosts than be with a snake in one room.

I was always scared of the boogie man and scred of the darkness. Now that I have grown up, I am no longer scared of the boogie man but I am still scared of the dark. I am also afraid of prowlers also. We have been burglarised three times and I know that is why. I am also afraid to be in this world all alone if my husband or child passes away before I do.
