ICEBREAKER: WHAT IRRATIONAL FEARS DID YOU HAVE AS A CHILD?
I was always afraid of the monsters who lived under my bed. I would regularly shove things (books, blankets, clothes) underneath so that it would make it more difficult for them to find their way out.
GOING DEEPER: WHAT IRRATIONAL FEARS DO YOU HAVE NOW?
I don’t know that I have any irrational fears. Rational or irrational, I believe I’ve faced all of them. Oooh, I know! I recently had an MRI and it was the most terrifying experience. I was in a tight tube (arms at my sides), with a medical mask on, headphones over my ears giving me direction to hold my breath at random intervals. Have I mentioned I’m asthmatic? The whole experience is one I never want to experience again: sedation will be required.
