Unwarrented worries - do you have any?

Personally, I have an irrational concern about tetanus. I have my shots and I don't hang out in rusty nail factories, but every time I think about possibly getting tetanus, I get a little freaked out. There's no real reason why I should be, but they thought of being stuck in bed, unable to move, with tubes running into my stomach for six weeks? Yeah, no thank you.

Another is the feeling that my belly button might unravel. I'm a pretty well-educated person. I've worked in a hospital lab and graduated with a four year degree and the intent to go to medical school. I know that it's not possible. Still, someone poking a finger in there when we're play fighting or something? They get a definite smack. It just makes me get that awful niggling "what if?"

What about you guys? I know that I'm not the only one who thinks about stuff like this, so don't be shy!

When my anxiety gets really bad I worry about there not being enough oxygen in the atmosphere. Even though I know that there are plenty enough organisms (especially in the ocean) that produce O2 from CO2, I still freak out about it sometimes.

I also have a weird fear of space, if that makes any sense? Like the cold, emptyness and the fact that just us living and having so many chemical reactions a second increases the entropy of the universe exponentially, like us living is killing the universe?

Hahaha, I dunno, I'm a hard science geek because it terrifies me and, because of that, interests me.

I am absolutely terrified of being buried alive. The thought of being in a box, deep in the ground with no way out....

So I am getting cremated. Makes sense, huh? Instead of being buried alive I would be burned alive, but that does not even cross my mind as something to fear.

This thread is really interesting. Looking forward to the answers!

I don't have any extremely irrational onces except general social anxiety stuff, worrying that everyone is looking at me while I'm at a restaurant or walking down the street. Doing a bad social thing and then worrying about how I messed everything up and what people thought of me for the rest of the day. I don't have low self esteem or anything. Maybe low confidence in my social abilities or something. I think that's just an anxiety disorder type thing and is fairly normal?

At nearly 60 years old and unemployed - I'm worried that I will never find another good job!

I have an irrational fear of ice skating. Specifically of falling while ice skating. And I even took ice skating lessons as a kid.

Good luck getting me on the ice now.

Science is terrifying sometimes, I swear! Even if I wanted kids, after studying all the horrific things that can go wrong, I don't think that I'd be up for it.
