I have many frogs in my garden pond. They are wonderful little creatures who do no harm, and they eat slugs.

They may well be good for your garden, but just wait, one dark night when you are taking the rubbish out you hear a sinister croak behind you, and you spin round to see them en-masse , just waiting, with the deepest ,darkest hunger in their squinty little black eyes and as you turn to run,they move as one and you shudder as the slime touches your exposed throat..........

isnt fear a basic human human emotion that we all share at some point. mine is the fear of heights, i cannot abide them yet is seems so silly at times. i feel so strangely drawn to the edge of a tall structure that i feel i could just lean down and touch the ground and yet that is when the fears kicks in. well more to the point its the family fear that i will topple over the edge that now i dont go near the edge at all.

Like many people, I am terrified of heights. Many years ago when I was a teenager, I went up the Blackpool tower in thhe lift. When it reached the top I couldn't move, and was helped by an attendant. I knew I hated heights, but was trying to overcome my fear. It didn't work, and heights still frighten the life out of me.
The odd thing is I love flying, and have no fear at all in a plane. Can anyone explain this to me?

My fear of heights is a little different, it's not the fear of falling but the fear of jumping. I can't go near any sheer edge without feeling the compulsion to do a running jump.

You must have been an eagle in your past life. Perhaps you should take up parachuting / paragliding. I on the other hand would rather swim naked with box jellyfish than jump out of a plane or off a cliff. If I get too close to a drop I have to cling to the ground and can't move, very nasty.

It's been done - in 'The Broken' the protagonist is walking to work when she sees herself driving by in her car ... good film :)

Emma Beckett says:
My worst fear is to be vulnerable and powerless. We all like to think we can take care of ourselves, keep ourselves safe. But imagine being tied up, completely helpless and at the mercy of a psychopath who considers you to be nothing more than entertainment. To be degraded and to know that there's nothing you can possibly say to save yourself because you're dealing with a lunatic.
Of course we all have a degree of self preservation but imaging having to beg for your life? Imagine the rage and indignity you'd feel? I imagine death would be preferable to many people.
This is what makes "torture porn" films so scary.

So true. Do you think it would be more scary if it was someone you loved and who you thought loved you?

I'm a chronic insomniac and sleep with a DAB radio on the dresser next to my bed. When I wake up in the middle of the night, I've got into the habit of reaching over to turn the radio on and put the earphones on to listen to a little Planet Rock or 5 Live until I feel sleepy again. Now, wouldn't it be creepy if, when I'm reaching out in the dark to find the ON button of my radio, someone (or something) grabs my hand?

@Emma Beckett I have a theory that fear of being helpless is why a lot of people are horrible to the the elderly and disabled. In my case, with a mobility problem, I was approached (polite word for it!) by a pervert some years ago in our local woods. Knowing I couldn't run away, I had to keep calm and try to talk my way out of it. Luckily my then dog, normally a placid ol' lab, came out of the bushes and did her impression of the Hound of the Baskervilles. Phew! The worse part was finding out he had assaulted another woman the week before... and yup, he had just been released into the community. No surprise there really.
