Blog Every Day in May -- Day 7

Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you're most afraid of

1) An airplane crash. Specifically the few seconds before. The screaming and the pandemonium as my fellow travelers and I realize the inevitable. Shudder!

2) Losing my independence. "Old age is a shipwreck." So said President Kennedy after seeing his father incapacitated by a stroke. My father, too, had a massive stroke. My uncle was brought down, painfully and slowly, by Parkinson's Disease. I hate the thought of being that vulnerable.

Hey! This was cheery! I haven't read these in advance, so I don't know what tomorrow brings. But I hope it's a little rosier!

  1. I tried not to dwell on my more irrational fears and went with the biggie--being incapacitated.

  2. Both of those are terrible! I'd be afraid of them too!
