6. Making decisions - fear of making the wrong one
7. Fear of making a fool of myself in public

12. Dealing with my partner's temper and lack of understanding
13. My family

17. Calling in sick
18. Sex

26. Getting/ looking older

29. Having panic attacks (well, overwhelming need to cry and hide somewhere to sob. Light headed, racing heart, detached vision etc if this is a panic attack?)

Sorry - just a cathartic list for my own rambling and as prep for a discussion (perhaps) with partner or day...or maybe not! :no
