#Blogtober16 Day 21 - What Am I Afraid Of?

What am I afraid of is an interesting question. I don't have any particular phobias. Snakes and clowns give me the creeps and lots of regular holes all together make me feel ill (tryptophobia). But I'm not petrified of any of them.

The things that frighten me are more personal. I'm scared of losing my parents. I'm getting to the age where my friends are starting to lose their parents and the thought of my mum not being around is more than I can take.

Another things that frightens me is my children's future. With Missy and Boy having autism and ADHD I worry about what life holds in store for them. Boy has a tendency towards violence when crossed, which is part of the ADHD. I've mostly got it under control at the moment but I'm scared of what will happen when he's bigger. Or what he will come across in secondary school.

As for Missy, it's very unlikely she will ever be independent. She shows a lot of PDA traits which means that she struggles with every demand put on her. If she's asked to do something she HAS to put her own twist on it. It's almost like it would be physically painful for her to do it exactly the way she's been asked. And there will be situations in life when she has to do exactly what she's been told to do. This shows the most in her schoolwork. Although she has learning delays she's very clever and is capable of doing the work she's asked to do, but she won't do it in the way she's been asked. This results in her getting extremely low marks in tests because although the answer might be correct, it's not answered exactly how they want it answered.

Those are my fears. What are yours?
