QOTD 10/9

What are you afraid of?

My two biggest fears in life are infertility and cancer. Ever since around the age of 18 I had this fear that I wouldn't be able to get pregnant. Well, it came true. I just hope my fear of cancer doesn't come true. I'm so paranoid and think everything on my body is cancerous. Good thing DH is a doc and can say "no, Megan, it's not cancer." My silly fear is those tubes of biscuits or rolls. I HATE HATE HATE opening them. I don't like the sudden pop when it bursts and then sometimes I'm anticipating it and it doesn't pop. Children mentioned...I actually have to have one of the girls open them for me if they are home. If they aren't home I'll hold it as far away from me to open it.

I am afraid of something happening to me or my family. I got the call when my sister had her accident. I have seen a lot of death. I know nothing is permanent- but I am still scared. This year I was present (leading the code team) for two moms who died from childbirth- so I know even happy moments are not always happy. How do you like that for my deep, dark scariness.

Oh, and I am like Meg and I really dont like being home alone. Someday DH is gonna have to get me a dog.

I also dont like suspenseful or scary movies. Period.

I used to like scary movies but now I don't. I even hate watching the previews on TV. Now I think "why did I like those?"

I'm sorry to hear about your sister, Tiffany. How long ago did that happen? That would probably be another fear of mine also. Thankfully I was only in on a few codes when I worked. I worked at a very small hospital so we didn't have them a lot but when we did have them it was up to you since there was no code team. Life is actually very scary and full of uncertainties.
