  1. i think literally every job seems scary to me or just the thought that something bad may happen while i am working. like s shooting, or someone puts me at gunpoint. these fears are a little dated now but they could still happen.. once i tried to work at a nursing home but that wasn't a good fit either i deeply disliked the job and it took away from my quality of life and i was glad when they let me off for the woman coming back after maternity leave, but jobs like scary like i know like this guy i just met hes a railroad conductor and i just think that is so scary!! even less risky jobs though i am afraid of doing, its like a paralyzing fear it's so bad

    even a sewing machine or hammering a nail freaks me out

    these are my opinions/raw feelings i hope i am not made fun of for this here is a safe space

  2. I have social anxiety that screws with me a lot, but I don't let it keep me from goin' where I wanna go...I just prefer to be kept to myself rather than socialize with a lot of people. You ultimately just have to face it though, or not, and no one can make that choice for you.

    The world mostly sucks, like life, but if you don't seek the bright spots of it out it will always suck.

  3. I'd have thought the nursing home job would have been the scariest. The reality of seeing what can or will eventually happen to us would make getting shot a preferable alternative.

  4. No. But if you're worried about being shot the best thing is to have a gun so you can at least put a few in that punk bitch's chest before you go :)

  5. Thats the depressing part..... not all that scary. Im glad I have a little experience working around healthcare but at the same time, I would almost rather not know those realities.

    Exposure. Go buy a board. And a box or two of nails. And hammer every single one into it. Do it in your basement while no ones looking if thats what you need. And then burn it. Even if you smash a finger, it will heal. If you dont just put yourself out there in the world, you never get used to it. That being said, I am no longer interested in working in industries where relatively common equipment failure can cause death.

  8. Those things are scary, and I'll add fire. A house fire or a threatening wildfire terrifies me. .
    That said, i carry a lot of anxiety and a lot of things scare me. I get around what I can and face the rest somewhat sideways, I think. Life can be very uncomfortable at times. Thank goodness for cannabis!

  9. Hmmm. Safe space? Possibly, but probably not. This is a public cannabis forum. I would highly suggest weekly appointments with a therapist, and a visit to a psychiatrist. I have compassion for you, but think these 2 options would be more appropriate avenues to guarantee a safe space and get help and support.

  11. just last week 'we' had a rock coming in from space at a ligthspeed,
    lucky for the planet it was only the size of a dumpster,
    most of us didn't blink, or care, we are so wrapped up in our own shit

    maybe getting educated so you don't need to do shit lowlife work,
    in truth you need a confidence boost

    good luck

    ps I said to a buddy the other day who coughed in his beer, when I said I think I need a shrink,
    as I haven't been to the city central for a month

  12. More times then not super scared froze in your tracks normally gets people hurt/killed.
    Or just freaked out/insane, if your that scared, then don't put yourself in certain situations where you can get other people hurt or killed.
  13. "Normalcy bias, or normality bias, is a cognitive bias which leads people to disbelieve or minimize threat warnings.[1] Consequently, individuals underestimate the likelihood of a disaster, when it might affect them, and its potential adverse effects.[2] The normalcy bias causes many people to not adequately prepare for natural disasters, market crashes, and calamities caused by human error. About 70% of people reportedly display normalcy bias during a disaster.[3] The normalcy bias can manifest in response to warnings about disasters and actual catastrophes. Such disasters include market crashes, motor vehicle accidents, natural disasters like a tsunami, and war. Normalcy bias has also been called analysis paralysis, the ostrich effect,[4] and by first responders, the negative panic.[5] The opposite of normalcy bias is overreaction, or worst-case scenario bias,[6][7] in which small deviations from normality are dealt with as signals of an impending catastrophe."
