Dear Diary, part 2 My Aha moment...

Well, as it always, goes....had absolutely NOTHING to worry about.  Actually had FUN working.
I realized before going to work, that I have a phobia...phobias, to be exact.  I'm afraid of being late, and I'm afraid of making mistakes.  I didn't realize that it was so bad that I actually get heart palpitations! BUT, the realization, turned out to be the first step.  After acknowledging my fears, they acknowledged me too.  

Fears: So, you finally figured us out.
Me: Yeah, you've always been there?
Fears:  Since kindergarten.
Me: Hmpf.
Fears: ...

and that was it.  I didn't care anymore.  They might come back again, but I think I 'll be alright, since now I know what to look out for.  So, I'm thinking maybe I should make a journal (or blog) only about phobias...there might already be one out there!  I'm gonna go check!

OK, I checked...there were several...but they don't have ALL the phobias listed.  Some have more but others would have a different variety, etc.  My two BIG phobias, turned out to be :

fear of being late : ALLEGROPHOBIA
fear of making mistakes : Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or Mistake Phobia ...they both sound wrong...will have to look harder, they sound like mistakes.
Atychiphobia: Fear of failure.
That sounds more like it, I suppose. But it still doesn't sound correct. Wow, I need help!

Lol, this is a very nice post! I'm not going to bother naming my phobias because there will be that many!! At first glace Allegrophobia looks like fear of allergies :P
Thanks for your comments!

Aha! That could be a phobia of phobias! I amgoing to try to work through all of my phobias...well maybe not ALL, but as much as possible this year! My belated new year's resolution!
