As a kid I used to have my sister go through books like the Guiness Book of Records or anything that could have a picture of a snake in it and tape the pages together so I wouldn't turn to it and throw the book clear across the room in panic.
    I have so many fears, it is hard to name just one, but snakes is right up there.

    And I thought I was the only who couldn't handle pictures of snakes in books. I couldn't open science books because of the pictures of snakes.
    My high school science teacher threatened me with failing the class unless I touched a snake. I said - try it, I will go to the principal/school board. Now that is irrationale, fear of snakes vs. principals and school boards.

    Ever being seriously broke again.
    Clowns. Especially the Bozo/Krusty type. They're too creepy. I mean, really, why would a grown man do that???

    Losing my kids or my husband. Everything else is nothing compared to that.

    I've been there so I shouldn't be afraid of anything but still, I'm scared of diseases like cancer. I'm also scared of ending up homeless and of fire. I've been in all kind of dangerous situations but fire is the only thing that can really make me loose my self-control.

    Agree. Not being able to take care of myself is #2 on my list.
    #1 is not being able to communicate.

    Blessings to you for your losses.

    I have been in a fire and I have been in an auto accident that could have killed me and yes, cancer causes me concern but outright fear of losing my kids and my husband is the #1 thing on my list. Homeless is still a real possibility for us if things do not improve within the next year, that will be a real adjustment I am sure, but so it goes!

    Since I currently am a housewife, I fear the thought of being forced back into the work force after a long period of absence (through DH's death, financial need or divorce). As a former graphic designer, my skills will all but be obsolete even five years from now. But me staying home is something we both wanted, so that's the risk I take. I'm just going to have to keep myself as updated as possible, just in case.

    Mustard. As stupid as it sounds, it's true. Can't smell it, can't look at it, can't touch it. If it comes near me I run the other way. My loved ones thing I am little bit crazy.

    I once found a website with people's strange phobia's and found solace that there are others like me who are afraid of mustard.

    I can understand this, because it can be so humiliating. I know it was for me a couple of times after my car accident.

    I am another one who cannot even stand to see a picture of a snake. However everytime there's a nature special on TV about snakes, I find myself watching it for at least a few minutes. I guess I like scaring myself to death.

    I admit I'm also very afraid of dogs, have been since early childhood. I'm a little better now, I can at least stand to be around one, but if it jumps on me it's panic time.

    Getting Alzheimer's, my grandfather has it now, and I came to the conclusion a few weeks ago that the hardest thing is missing someone when technically they are still here.

    My mom getting cancer. My grandmother died of lung cancer earlier this year and my mom still smokes.

    A bad car accident, especially one where I am at fault, causing severe mental, physical and financial trauma. Life can change in an instant. But I don't worry very much any more, just make an effort to appreciate every day, the joys and wonders of life.

    Getting sick with some serious illness, right as life is getting good.

    A break-in.....I lock my doors at night, then close my bedroom door and lock it as well, when I sleep at night...not to mention check my closet every night before bed(it's a walk-in).

    Used to be terrified of death, but have come to terms with the fact that once you get past the actual not conscious anymore, it's probably not that scary because you aren't aware.

    Flying.........I've never been a fan...but I'm not terrified or scared stiff by it....I just don't like it much and would rather not. Irrational I know.

    Chronic diseases like cancer. I have lupus but so far it isn't that grave, I can cope without too many problems with my medicine. But I'm terribly scared of it getting worse.

    Bad Accidents and consequences (becoming handicapped or deformed in any way).

    Being unemployed.

    Cancer. It's already killed in my immediate family twice.

    Nuclear War (hopefully, I'll be old and senile by the time that happens, but I do worry about the future of my grandchildren.)

    Other than that, I try not to worry too much, and not sweat the small stuff...
