My Commute to work.
I have a fear of being in a vehicle. It is a real thing!
Vehophobia or the fear of driving can impact one’s daily life especially since most of us are dependent on this activity to get by. It can affect one to an extent that s/he refuses to go shopping, visit a doctor or even drive to work. Individuals with the extreme fear of driving prefer public transport or request friends or family members to drive them each time. This is fine, so long as these options are available at one’s disposal. However, this might not be the case always affecting the individual’s education, job and other activities negatively.
There are varying degrees of Vehophobia. Some individuals are only anxious about driving on highways or certain dreaded routes. Some are unable to pass their driving tests or acquire a license. A few might be having valid driving licenses but they pose a danger to themselves as well as other drivers. They can have a panic attack while driving and freeze up to an extent that they are unable to apply brakes or change gears etc. In extreme cases, a person may even be terrified of being a passenger in the vehicle.
My husband is probably the best driver I have ever been in a vehicle with. So he makes it tolerable for me.
Snippet from Island of the Zombie King…
Another dumb question so how about another short?
Day 10’s question is lame. So how about a poem?
Casper, Town of Needles
Casper, the town of dreams. The town of nightmares. The town of a thousand dreamy nightmares. All who stalk the town with hatchets and sledgehammers, thanks to dingy dope filled needles.
Casper, the town of psycho clowns, and the tiny midgets who beat them. The incorporated town with one streetlight by the post office. One gas station, four bars, and three liquor stores.
Casper, the home of crackheads who don’t give a damn. The town of a million children running around the dirt roads with bare feet, runny noses and head lice. The schools filled with teachers who would like to give a damn, but they don’t live in Casper.
Casper, where no one dares to stop. The cops don’t even wink an eye or turn to look. The town where everything runs illegal, and the oldest sibling of six is trying to buy her baby brother some diapers with twenty food stamps.
Casper, the town of forgotten dreams. The dream, when I grow up, leaves you when you turn ten. The cruel streets are harsh to play on. The drugs are real. The threat is real, but the psycho clowns are only in their heads as the dingy dope filled needles play along their skin.
Day 9 Your feelings on Ageism…
I had to google this. I didn’t know what the heck it was.
Ageism (also spelled “agism”) is stereotyping and discriminating against individuals or groups on the basis of their age. This may be casual or systematic. The term was coined in 1969 by Robert Neil Butler to describe discrimination against seniors, and patterned on sexism and racism.
I dislike all discrimination-age, sex, weight, looks, color, race, ect.
If I dislike you it is because plain and simple you are an asshole.
Day 7 What tattoos do you have and their meanings.
I have 3. I have a purple butterfly. This was to celebrate turning 18, purple being my favorite color and I like butterflies. When I turned 30 I got a zombies stick figure tramp stamp, cause I could. And a peacock which was my husband’s first tattoo. He hasn’t had time to really get back into it, but he wants to. I have plans for more.
Day 6 Someone who fascinates me and why?
I am fascinated by strong women in history. Women who have raised above what was socially acceptable to change the world. Ones who risked stepping out to be something they are not. We have it to easy sometimes, and it is nice to think of these heroes of art, music, literature and film. Queens, ladies and the working woman. Women who dared to raise their fists and shout we will not sit quite, we will be heard and seen.
Day 5 is a place I would like to live, but have never visited.
I would have to say unless I am forced from California I don’t want to live any other place. I have no extreme weather. I have lived my life here. I can go to the ocean in under 3 hours. Under 2 I can visit the snowy mountains. There are many places I would like to visit. But I am okay with just visiting.
Day 4 Ten Interesting Facts About Me.
1. I am addicted to Holiday tea from Harney and Sons.
2. My favorite Muppet is tied between Animal and Kermit.
3. I like Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat Beer.
4. I daydream more then I should be writing.
5. I have 2 goats Thor and Odin.
6. I am terrified of spiders of all shapes and sizes even when they are in behind glass.
7. If I had super powers I would be evil, or if I had the ability to use the force I would be a sith.
8. I am addicted to Farm Heroes.
9. I wish I had more time to read.
10. I sing Down in the Valley, when I am in the Shower. I sang it in chorus, and I sang it to my baby sister when I watched her.
