I am constantly scared to death about something. I fear catastrophies the most. A house burnt down a few houses down and I am now paranoid that mine will. I think I smell natural gas, but my wife dosent and thinks I am crazy. I often obsess about pipes bursting during the winter, things that go bump in the night, etc. I am scared to death of becoming ill, getting cancer, aids, or even deep lacerations. I am scared about finances, bankruptcy, etc although there is little threat of them happening to me. I was once afraid that I pissed God off and was convinced for months that I was going to hell despite what my pastor, family, and other religious council told me. I am scared to death of losing my job. I sleep next to a loaded gun for fear of intrusion or that the government will go rogue overnight and be trying to haul me away to some fema camp in the morning. I sometimes lose sleep over these fears.
