Fear is a powerful thing and can wreck havoc on your life. What are you afraid of and what do you do do conquer your fears? My person, Carol is afraid all the time and that is her mental illness. She is afraid to be alone. Afraid of her heart beat. Afraid of dying. Afraid of drinking. Afraid of eating. Afraid of bodily functions. Afraid of water. I guess all those fears together make her afraid of living.

Somewhere the sound she hears from the pulsatile tinnitus and hearing her heart beat changed and morphed into many fears. Now finally after many kinds of pills for anxiety, depression, schizophrenia and more she is afraid every day she awakens.

I want so much to help her not to be afraid. My dear sister Bonnie sent her this note and suggested I buy Carol a gun. Well I have tried everything else. I guess this might be next. So I guess I will go online and get a gun. As I do not want Carol to be afraid of a fucking thing.

A State Trooper pulled an 87 year old woman over for speeding.

As he looked at her driver’s license he was surprised to notice that attached to it was a conceal weapon permit.

Taken aback, he couldn’t help but ask if she had a gun in her possession.

She replied in her crackly voice that she indeed did have a 45 automatic in her glove compartment.

The trooper then asked if she had any other weapons to which she replied that she also had a 9mm Glock in her center console.

The shocked trooper asked if that was all and the little old lady held up her purse and replied, “Well, I do keep a 38 special in my purse.”

Finally the astonished trooper asked, “What are you afraid of..? and the little old lady smiled and replied,

“Not a Fucking thing.”
