On Claustrophobia.

Buried movie

I was trying to think of “irrational” fears that I have and I don’t think I have many. I feel all my fears are based purely in a logical realm. The closest thing I can account for is a minor case of claustrophobia. It comes only when I am tight space where I can’t easily find escape. Examples would be under a house or a tunnel with crawling room only. Even watching that sometimes bring on a mini panic attack. There was an episode of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe where he has to catch animals under a house. I was scared for him. Also, if anyone were to follow me in a tunnel that was only as big as my body I would probably start kicking them if they decided to play a “joke” on me. Their face would be the price they pay.

If I am locked in a closet I don’t get scared or anything. It’s usually just when I am in a horizontal position. Maybe the best way to phrase this is I am just afraid of enclosed horizontal positions.

I would also have a panic attack if I was ever to wake up buried alive. The ensuing heart attack would kill me before lack of air or nutrients could get me. I don’t fear it happening to me, but imagining it is gruesome indeed.

I am sorry this is my phone in post. I just don’t have much more to say about it. Please, don’t bury me alive. I’ll be your best friend.
