In continuation with the "Name your Phobias thread", here's another fear-provoking question: What is the thing that you are most afraid of?

My greatest fears: public speaking
heights (when I was little)

Tornados!

When I lived in Iowa and Ohio I would have reoccuring dreams where I have been swept away in a tornado or I've just survived one hitting my house. Both times I walk away free from harm. One dream in particular I was left hanging in a tree and people were holding on to my ankles dangling below me.

I know my fear of them makes me have these terrible dreams during tornado season. I was always watching the skies. Shocked

My fear is losing my kids, to kidnapping or accidents. I refuse to let that turn me into one of those Moms who hover over them at every moment, but deep down this is my greatest fear.

Tornados are fun as long as they don't cause much damage or injury. I enjoy chasing them.

I have very irrational fears, all stemming from childhood traumas. So irrational I won't tell you what they are.

Killing/maiming someone else. Mostly this would be in the form of an auto accident because where else in my life am I allowed to pilot a 3,000 lb. machine @ 60 MPH with minimal training?

Having Mrs. Coach seriously injured or killed in like a serious car accident. The prospect of having to raise kids by myself, and living with out her in my life is too frightening.
