Well good morning, my biggest fear I don't know because it would be something that I would not have control of.

My biggest fear is Heights and Dying. I'm not so good on water either.

Suffocation (or not being able to breathe), Heights, being trapt in my body while my mind still works (ie body not responding to medical sitation but my mind is fully aware), something happening to my children.

This scares me too! The first time I was going to have surgery I was so paranoid about this!

Yes!! My DH thinks I'm a nut, but it is a real fear I have.

I watched a show on people who this has actually happened to shortly before my first surgery, NOT SMART, I don't recommend that you EVER watch something like that.

Hmm? Drowning. I almost drowned as a child and that fear has stayed with me.

One of my kids passing away before I do.

Right now my biggest fear is becoming ill/incapacitated to where I can't work.  I have zilch set aside in savings right now and am literally working paycheck to paycheck.   If I can't work I would lose my apartment, my car, and then what?  where would I go?  what would I do for transportation?  I mean especially if I am ill/incapacitated! 

If I die, I have life insurance but of course that won't help me if I am still alive and kicking!

Remember the tooth abscess I had a couple of months ago? I chose to do nothing?  and then at the followup dental appointment the dentist really had nothing to say about it?  Well, every now and then, I get a small lump between my jawbone and cheek that is tender when I touch it.  The lump comes and goes.  Sometimes it is more tender than other times.  There is no toothache.  I freak out a little bit thinking what if it's like bone cancer and then what? 

so that is my biggest fear right now, being alive but unable to work and care for myself.
