Wired question

AbigailAbigail Carer/musicianPosts: 686 Incredible Poster
My wired and slightly stupid question to you is:
Are you scared of thunder and lightning? Is there a story behind it? Let me know and any tips to lower anxiety would be great!
Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.

    I don't like when the storm comes and I always get paranoid that the house will get stuck. I have to be in the centre of the room and all sockets have to be off. I'm not too sure why I do it and I've never had bad experiences it just puts be on the edge.

    I live in a tall house and my rooms at the top and growing up I always had top bunk so assumed that I was at the highest point of the house so maybe it was just a way of me protecting my self.

    I'm not really scared, hate when it's a really bad one (but then again those are rare over here). My sister (19) is terrified though, I'll have to ask her for the story when she's out of the mood shes in😂.

    I'm afraid of thunder and lightning, I hate it so much but its also linked to my other fear of fireworks so they are both linked.
    reception (in school) there was a really bad thunder storm and round the corner from my house there was a street light that got knocked off but it didn't fall quietly so I always have that fear of what is something happens. Annoying as it is, just get on with it.
