Probably one of my worst was when I was jumped on by a large animal and was pinned underneath.
I was alone onn my property, and suddenly got very calm and thought "this is how I am going to die".....however the moments before that were terrifying -SAVED BY MY DOG!
I think I have also been terrified when just about to go up on those things where the boat takes off and you go high in the air as someone had landed in the wrong place a few days before and was killed.
I had not even said I was sure I wanted to go and they were strapping me in and I said WAIT and he took off -in that second I was terrified. However it was absolutely beautiful once I was up in the air.
Yes. My son was supposed to be asleep on my sister-in-law's bed, my husband went to check on him and came running down the stairs to say he had disappeared.... we searched the house from top to bottom and couldn't find him, so the others went to search outside (our son could open the front door) whilst I sat down as too terrified to think straight - it was the week after my god-daughter had been found dead and two weeks after the unexpected death of my father-in-law so I was not feeling strong anyway...... then I thought best to keep busy, so went into the bedroom to tidy up and found our son fast asleep on the floor under a blanket. He had rolled off the bed, pulling the blanket with him and my husband hadn't seen him and when searching the room hadn't thought to look under the blanket. It took me a long time to recover! And I will never again believe my husband when he says he has looked everywhere!
I have a massive fear of drowning after nearly doing so,aged 7, in the surf at Wilson's Promontory when a surfer on a board pushed me under as he rode straight through.I threw up for days and I have never gotten over this fear. So you can imaging my absolute terror when an idiot picked me up and threw me in the 9 feet deep end of a privately owned pool,despite everyone there being told I could not swim a stroke.I was 18 by this time and still petrified!! I sank like a stone and passed out.I do not even recall how I came to be out of the pool afterwards. Not funny at all,and very,very stupid as well as dangerous!!
I have had a few of those moments.
Once when riding a horse, it took off and it became very hard to control....I thought I would be hurt badly, but I pulled it up as best I could.
Another was when I was on a bus from Los Angeles, told the bus driver a man was going to hurt me when I get off the bus....the driver just said 'get-off' and slammed the door as I did.I guess because people were around, and I went towards them...nothing did happen.I also had men pull up in a car with guns.
For me, my faith got me through that I was well and truly looked after..
As I will NEVER take a park ride, the other terrifying moments I've had, was standing on a cliff top, as I'm scared of heights, but not scared of flying, except the time we were in a very small plane, that only held 10-12 people. We were flying over the Grand Canyon. I cried to myself, all the way there & back! When I told my mother about that experience a few years later, she just said,"Well, if it comes down, it comes down. there's nothing you can do about it" A month after we were there, 1 did crash. I've been told you have more change of dying in a car crash, then a plain crash!
