The worst feeling I have ever had was standing at the railing at the back of a cruise ship. I had to go sit down. It was terrible. Every one in a while you read where some one fell over board. If you have ever been on one of there ships it is almost impossible to accidently fall over the rails unless you are climbing on them or something. When I read about these I just have to wonder....

My biggest fear...Honestly...
Coat hooks, mounted at eye-level.

Oh good. I'm not the only one with and eye injury phobia.

I also have an eye phobia because I've had recurrent corneal erosion for the last 13 yrs. It only happens in the morning, usually early, so i go to bed thinking about it every night, not knowing if its going to happen when i wake up. as a matter of fact it happened to me yesterday morning, hurts like a mother!@#$.

I've had 2 types of surgeries in both eyes, twice in one eye and use a topical cream before bed everynight and it still happens about once per month, sometimes more, sometimes less.

I've actually had to teach myself to wake up without opening my eyes so i can swirl them around before opening them. scary huh?
