I am going to talk to you about another fear I have. I feel that the more I think about it and the more I become aware of it, I have a huge list of fears. Not saying I am becoming a nutcase or unstable with a case of panophobia, which is the fear of everything. I will never get there. I like too much but here and there, I discover another common and quirky thing I fear. Today’s post is about my curse of stepnophobia, or in laymen’s term, the fear of ladders. You read that right. I am scared of ladders.
We all are afraid of something. It might be the dark or it might be the imaginary monster under the bed. I have my own share of phobias. Some of them are common and some phobias are stranger than fiction. I don’t suffer from arachnophobia. I don’t like spiders but I never will say I have a phobia of them. If you say you don’t have a fear of anything then I don’t believe you. We’re all afraid of something.
I mentioned my fear of people in bunny costumes. Still never found a scientific name for it but its real. I know there are other people out there who suffer from the same dread when they visit theme parks and spot the Easter Bunny hopping around. My fear, the one I am going to discuss now, stems from a movie. Since watching that movie and even having a run in with said fear, I am worried when I am near it. My imagination runs wild and I start having very strange thoughts. Sucks having an over active imagination. Simple things become much more than they actually are.
I want to make something clear about this post before you read it. I wrote this at about 1am. I had just woken up from the dream and didn’t want to forget it. It isn’t like the other dreams. It’s different. Just read on. I need to write this down before I forget it. I won’t post this till the morning. I just had a dream and while I have some pretty fucked up dreams about nothing, this one actually wasn’t a dream. It was more of a nightmare. Chinese food and a couple of beers is to blame. I have had nightmares before. One was about a cyclops and another was me walking into a spider web. I have lots of dreams about zombies but those never scare me. Never once did I wake up screaming about the zombies that were after me. Other things scare me. Let me get to the dream…excuse me. I meant nightmare.
