  • Yes, when I was younger someone broke into my house, who I knew, and the only reason he didn't hurt me and my mom was because my mom had my uncle on speed dial and they had some code for emergencies. My uncle came running in with his gun and beat the hell out of the guy.

    Now I always feel like I need to have a weapon near by when I'm home alone, I don't own a fire arm due tofear of those, but Im sure I can be creative with household items

  • Yes. Fear of deep water. I got kicked out of swim lessons as a kid because I was too afraid and I'm still afraid, probably even more so now.

  • My first memory is of my brother choking. He was 2. I was 3. I am phobic about choking with my kids. Even coughing freaks me out.
