Anxiety and Pre-Death Wishes January 23, 2012

Filed under: Link Ups,Lists,Uncategorized — Sara @ 5:16 pm

I LOVE lists!! So this week I’m joining in with the Monday Listicles Link Up

Ten Things I’d Like To See Happen Before I Die

  1. To see my boys grow up and be able to live happily on their own
  2. Gas go back down to under $2 a gallon
  3. Large companies to lose the ability to take advantage of customers
  4. People to stop feeling they are owed anything or entitled to it
  5. No elderly, disabled, or veteran to go without
  6. People learning relearning what common courtesy and manners are
  7. Insurance companies to realize that 1:91 children with autism will be 1:91 adults before we know it, they need to start covering more to help prepare children for the future
  8. Better temporary assistance to those who need it so they can get the help they need, but until people stop taking advantage of the programs already in place that will NEVER happen
  9. I want that contraption from The Jestsons to be invented and come standard in houses…you know what I’m talking about right? The conveyer belt thingy that woke them up, showered, dressed, and got them ready in the A.M.
  10. Peace on Earth….pretty standard answer I’m sure, but it’d be nice

Then Things That Give Me Anxiety

  1. The Dentist
  2. ARD Meetings
  3. Snakes (I’m pretty convinced anything that moves on land without legs [oh and can eat me] is evil)
  4. Bridges….weird right…I hate bridges…not heights, just bridges
  5. Roller Coasters….again not the height, it’s the fact I could fall face forward over the edge and fall crashing to my death or land on the tracks and be crushed by the roller coaster cart
  6. Airplanes…funny because I’d love to go skydiving and I’d love to get a pilot’s license (maybe this part should be moved to the top list…), but I don’t like someone else having that much control over my life….or paying $5 for a drink…)
  7. Swimming in lakes or the ocean…I have real issues when I can’t see the bottom….I try to convince myself there are no fish or other creepy crawlies in the water
  8. New situations
  9. Thinking about the future….autism and the long term scares the beejeebus out of me
  10. Loud overcrowded places…not like the mall on a Saturday crowded, but no room to move my elbows crowded
  11. Small spaces….okay so I added an extra…what can I say ;P
These lists are in no particular order…just me rambling away…so what’s on your list?

  1. I’m with you on many of these! Oddly enough though, while snakes do give me a little anxiety, I get more anxious about spiders. I guess because they are EVERYWHERE. And I can’t believe I forgot them on my list!

      We’ve had a lot of spiders this past year so my fear of them isn’t nearly as bad as it used to be…as long a there’s a shoe near by to smush it with lol 🙂

  2. I hear you, on all of these apart form dentist. I love going there. Except when they bill me. OK, so I guess it still causes me anxiety in some form. Great to have you join us Sara, we all LOVE lists too!!

  3. You are so right about autism & funding! Eventually these classified children will age out of school and then what? Great list!

  4. People that think the world owes them something are a dangerous lot and I wish that thought process didn’t even exist. Gas below $2.00 would help families get more groceries and that is always good!

  5. paul Says:

    #4 and 6 from the first list please.
    My #1 is the dentist too.
    Great list.

  6. I have NEVER thought about the 1:91 point of view before. That’s the best way I’ve seen it put to really mean something.
