Re: What are you afraid of?

@tree: Thanks for chiming in!

I think in terms of physical changes I don't really tend to notice as I am usually too focused on my fear; as T-W said, "Tunnel Vision".

Re: What are you afraid of?

@Sophie: Yeah, pretty much. It's basically a fear of being away from a safe place (like home) and having a panic attack (and not being able to escape). The definition on the website that Doris put up earlier is a good one actually.

"Agoraphobia - Fear of open spaces or of being in crowded, public places like markets. Fear of leaving a safe place."

It's basically thinking of every possible worst-case scenario.

"I have got better with as I got older"
Hopefully true for me too... Maybe after my HSC I can become more confident in my swimming ability. That would help.

Re: What are you afraid of?

i really dont like sharp corners or anything touching the front of my neck. i hate corners though and i always have to cover them up.
