I just can't!

There are a few things I can't handle... Blood used to be one of them, but I grew out of that - thankfully! Really noisy things, such as  whole bunches of people talking at once, fireworks and storms used to be some of them as well. Ok, so I still don't like those things, but I can't handle it better :) Some of the things I can't handle now are (in no particular order):

1. Tomato horn worms. I just can't do it. I had one on my skirt one time and I thought I was going to go into panic attack. I really hate those things.

2. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. Ok, so these aren't as bad as horn worms, but I don't like the way they feel. I can touch them (I prefer them to be wet when I do though) but I don't like it.

And I have a new one that I found out yesterday:

3. FISH SCALES. Ok, I know you are thinking I'm crazy. Fish scales will not hurt me in anyway, but I just can't do it. Mom was teaching me and my dear fiance how to clean fish yesterday and I could have passed out. It was awful! The gutting part didn't bother me in the least. Cutting the head off and cooking didn't bother me either, but the scales! Ugh! Just seeing the scales on the counter made me feel sick to my stomach. I started stuttering! I don't stutter! I couldn't form a coherent sentence besides "no, never, I just can't do it" and even that was mixed with stuttering! I just can't handle those things. Right now I'm living in a state of mortal fear that I'll come across one of those things while I'm cleaning the kitchen. I know it's utterly ridiculous, I tried talking myself out of it and that usually works. I'm trying to use logical thinking, but for some reason logic is being over-ruled by panic, completely unreasonable panic.

Ok, I have to go before I work myself up again! I'm going to go read and listen to Michael Buble, excuse me.

  1. Ah, no matter.
    I have a perfectly irrational fear of things such as cockroaches and other insects, particularly when large and up close (King Kong's Skull Island would be terrifying for me), as well as of a few other things.

    Acrophobia might be a slightly more reasonable fear if mine, since I think i might have a fear of heights because there's a good possibility of me falling, or there at least appears to be. For instance, at the top of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, I stayed as far from the rail as possible - I think it's reasonable to assume that if I hit the rail hard I could flip over and fall to my death. Ultralights might be the same way (I've never been in one) since they have an open cockpit and don't appear to be very sturdily built, but I do just fine in large airplanes and actually enjoy turbulence when I'm not trying to do something I want the plane to be still for. So, I think it's a possibility I'd no longer have a fear of heights if I could fly (like Superman or some other guy.
    My guess about this may be incorrect, but I doubt I'll be able to test my theory any time soon.
    Rambling ended.
