  • i had nitemares of that happening as well like i just cant get out a scream that is very loud or loud enough for someone else to hear. but the wierd thing is is that im a really jumpy person and co workers and friend always grab me from behind to see how high i jump and scream. finally after i jumped close to 2 feet off the floor and the whole store heard me scream they stopped.

  • i have had two nightmares like that! isn't that weird? after one, i actually woke up with a sore throat from trying to scream!
    but, did you know that it only takes 7 pounds of pressure to pull a mans testicles "off"? can you visualize yourself gouging someone's eyes out? i was told you have to be able to visualize it in order to do it if needed. hooray for health class?

  • I would. I scream when I get scared. Like in high school my friends loved to come up behind me and scare/grab me because they found it funny that is scared me and how loud I screamed.

  • It does happen. When I get freaked out, my vocal cords paralyze and I would not be able to make a squeek much less a scream

  • No, I have been attacked before. By my ex husband and my psycho sister. I know for a fact that i think fast in those situations. I don't make it easy to be attacked, i would try even if it killed me to kick their ass. I would scream & use everything within arms leangth as a diversion or weapon.

  • no. all you think is fire, and of your children. You yell fire. One word, you can do it.

  • yes it is possible. everyone is different though so it depends on your personality to when you will get to that point of intense fear

  • oh yea but me myself it would take something catastrophic to make me that scared...

    Answer by MoMoFu at 10:16 PM on Aug. 12, 2010

  • I know for a fact that I'd be screaming my ass off. I'd be hoarse the next day, for sure! If I'm somewhere & it's dark, I usually hold my keys were I could use them to stab. I'm also considering getting a knife of some sort. I'm never anywhere that's sketchy or anything, but I'm really paranoid & my biggest fear is getting attacked...especially if my son's with me.
