2. Rabid animals
3. Being wrongfully convicted of a crime
4. ALL REAL LIVE monkeys (including chimps, gorillas, orangutans, and even the small standard cheap monkeys that zoos have thousands of, and even the baby monkey offspring of any of the above). Someday, you may get to know the origin of this very real fear.
5. Animals I don't know personally, because they might be rabid (see #2)
6. Seagulls, because they poop right on you, especially if you feed them
7. Insomnia and/or nightmares
8. Touching my food unless I'm at home, no matter how clean I know my own hands are.

10. Becoming so used to dealing with acute on chronic bouts of severe pain that I could develop sepsis or other irreversible conditions by waiting too long to seek treatment.
11. Developing dementia
12. Worsening of Acute Adult Onset Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
13. Losing the Love of my Life (today, tomorrow, OR even when we're old)
14. Cancer (this one's universal, I would think)

Working title: STDs*

17. Driving off a bridge or getting caught in flooded road and floated to larger body of drowning-water (see #16)
19. Developing Dementia
And last, but not least:
20. Worsening of Acute Adult Onset Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
21. And SNAKES!
