It is time for another Hot topic Thursday and this week I thought I would share with you all my biggest fear. You know that one that you would rather not have nor share but what the heck. I’m just gonna let it all hang here and yes I realize how bad that sounded.
I have a fear of cemeteries. I know that sounds a little crazy but when I was little and we drove past one in town I would start screaming about not wanting to go back there. For whatever reason I couldn’t stand to go past it. To the point that parents began driving out of the way just to avoid the cemetery. As I got older it got to the point where I could drive past them.
Typically my fear is only for those ones that look and feel old. You all know what I am talking about. The ones where you look out and know that people have been there for hundreds of years. We have one in town and while I can mange to drive past it I can’t get stopped at the red light that happens to right in front of it. If I get stopped there I will have a full blown, pull out the paper bag, panic attack.
Anytime I have ever had to go to a funeral I have had to take an anxiety medication before I went. I know that sounds like I am a crazy person. I assure you I am the normal sort of crazy and not the serial killer, stalker sort of crazy. It is just one of those things that people get for whatever unexplained reasons.
