This isn't really something that freaks me out, but I think I subconsciously enforced a fear of rat invasions into my mind. One of the places I lived had a rat infestation, so when we woke up it was common to see rats in twos and threes walking around on the floor in the bathroom where the bowl of cat food was.
We didn't want Kitty to get sick, so we left. Didn't want to wait to find out how long it would take the landlord to fix the situation.

So...the thing is, I constantly have nightmares now that I have rats in my house. Sometimes when I wake up, if I'm not all the way out of my sleepy-dreamy state, I will have strange sort of hallucinations (I don't know what else to call them, it's like I'm still dreaming with my eyes open but it's only when I first wake up) that there are shadows of rats climbing around outside the window on the walls. It scares me so much that I often jerk myself awake at night time. It's so messed up, haha. I'm not really even that afraid of rats. When I'm awake and looking at them it's not a big deal, I've held rats before... But I am afraid of disease, so...

Makes sense, right? Rats, eh. Diseases? Nope. No thanks.

There are 3200 varieties of parasites in the four major categories, Protozoa, Trematoda, Cestoda and Nematoda. Roundworms look similar to an earthworm and can produce 200,000 eggs daily. Approximately 1,008 million people are infected, making it the most common worldwide. The most frequent symptom from roundworms is upper abdominal discomfort. Other symptoms are asthma, eye pain, insomnia, and rashes due to the secretions or waste products from the worms.
Any and all are fucking nasty !!

The ocean.


Not, in the shallows, I'm ok with that but the proper deep ocean. The endless darkness that could, and would swallow you whole without a trace. The idea of that deepness scares the pants off me.

^^ That.

Oh. God. No.

Yep. Same here!

In fact, when I was a kid I used to freak out playing Ecco the Dolphin on my SEGA Megadrive (what?!) when Ecco jumps really high and then goes really deep into the depths. There's lots of sharks. *shiver*
