Describing my fears may be a little hard, because most of the fears I have are rather silly. In the 30 Day Writer's Blog Challenge Day 1 post I mentioned that I'm scared of the ocean and zombies, so let me explain those two first.

1. The Ocean - There are a few reasons why I'm frightened of the ocean, but let me make it clear that these fears do not stop me from going swimming in the ocean, they just make me more hesitant. My fears of the ocean aren't something that accumulated all at once. But, are more of a combination of different experiences growing up.

When I was little I wanted to learn how to surf, so I read every book I could about surfing. I probably shouldn't have, because that's when I realized that there are sharks who could easily chew off a limb and then some. Before I even began reading those books I watched The Blue Lagoon at a young age (think age 6 or 7) thanks to my grandmother who apparently didn't see anything wrong with this movie. In the movie someone stepped on this nasty looking Lion Fish (I think that's what the foot was).  So, not only does the ocean have things that can eat my face off, it also has things that will poison me if I get too close. Once on Long Island we went to a beach (I was about 10 at the time), and these teenagers were scooping up these dark red jelly fish and putting them in the trash. That grossed me out more than scared me, but there was no way in hell I was going into the ocean at Long Island after that. I also wanted to be a marine biologist as a kid, and would grab book after book from the library so I could read up on marine biology. Have you read any of those books? The ocean has some scary looking creatures down in the depths.
Scary creatures aside, I also think the ocean is not as respected as it should be. It is a MASSIVE body of water, with tides, currents, the power to destroy entire towns, and sink giant ships never to be seen again. There are two experiences I draw on when it comes to respecting the ocean. Maine doesn't have HUGE waves. We just don't. I think it's because most of our beaches are rocky. However, there are certain beaches with good 4-10ft waves. Let me just tell you, if you've never been knocked over by a wave, and the kept down by another wave, it is effin' terrifying. You can't keep your bearings, you're getting flipped around, you can't breathe, and all you can figure out is that you're in the water and hopefully it'll release it's grip on you before your run out of oxygen.

I took my family to Acadia National Park one Summer so we could get out, enjoy family time, and just enjoy the scenery. My husband took his daughter down onto the rocks near "Thunder Hole". He took an 8 year old...without a life vest... down onto the edge of the rocks where waves are notorious for being extremely strong. One came crashing in, and thankfully only her flip flop was washed away, but she almost was too. And people HAVE been knocked off of those rocks because they're too darn stupid to realize the ocean can and will kick their butts if given the opportunity.

2. Zombies - I know this one is a bit silly, but zombies scare the f*ck out of me. This fear doesn't keep me from watching great zombie movies (Zombieland is my favorite), but it does make me nervous when I go to bed after seeing one. I always picture a zombie running up to one of the windows near my bed and breaking in. So, I lie awake for awhile staring out the window, praying something doesn't eat me.

Why do zombies scare me? Because, out of all of the horrific things people make movies about, I think zombies are probably one of the most likely things that could happen. There could be some weird disease, mutant genetics, animal testing gone wrong. Heck, that person on bath salts was pretty much a zombie.

If zombies ever turned out to be real no one knows exactly how they would be. Are they going to be the fast destructive zombies who just go after everyone and everything until they die out because they consumed the human race too quickly? Or, are they going to be the slow mostly-dead zombies raising out of the graves? (Honestly, I highly doubt it would be the latter.) Either way, I'd rather not have my face eaten off to feed the living-dead.

3. My Family Dying - I feel like this fear is a given. However, this particular fear stems from a recurring dream I used to have between the ages of 4 and 6. In the dream my family is taken away from me and held hostage with guns pointed at their heads. I'm given an ultimatum; save myself and sacrifice my family, or act the martyr and save my family. Can you just imagine how hard that choice is for a child? The thought process isn't even as simple as, "I want to live." All I could think was that I didn't want my family to be sad if I died. I didn't want them to feel guilty. I didn't want them to have wished that I would have saved myself. But, I also didn't want to be selfish, and I didn't want them to lose their lives because of me. It wasn't a fun dream, and I still remember it quite well.
