In no particular order:
- Slipping on the edge of swimming pools. A friend broke her hip when we were 10 and since then I’m always very very careful.
- Eels. I grew up swimming in rivers and occasionally in the deep swimming holes you’d feel something big and slippery against your leg. Things in the sea don’t scare me in anywhere near the same way.
- Migraine headaches. Once the ‘aura’ starts the race is on to get home and into a dark room for what is inevitably 12 hours of vomiting and suicide inducing pain. Hell.
- Something bad happening to my son.
- Dying alone.
What scares you?
