In my opinion, there are several things in our lives that make us feel are afraid of a lot of situations but I think that the most importantly is to face the fear than but, not feel scare.
I wish it could be that easy but I'm sure it isn't, however I believe that it is possible when somebody wants to break besides all that things.

Doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, fire trucks with blaring horns and flashing red lights bearing down on me, bird droppings from the sky, cars spraying water on sidewalks on rainy days, going up more than three rungs on a ladder, phone calls in the middle of the night, phone calls early in the morning, computer viruses, real viruses, needles, skunks, doctors, psychologists, the fear of repeating myself in such good company...thank goodness I`m not a hypochondriac!

Ailime,

Only one minor suggested improvement here, change in to as a resulting in, "... as a consequence ..."

Before long you will be correcting me.

Bill,

Yes, it`s much better with your suggestion.
Thanks!!
This is an interesting interrogative sentence, especially since I am not afraid of almost anything physical, or even death, although I do have a large degree of respect for many things and am not inclined to do anything that is very foolhardy.

Having spent most of my life as a solidier, who tried to do his duty as professed by General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur, in his farewell speach to the Corps of Cadets of the U.S. Military Academy. In that speach his erudite and famous plea to the Officer Corps of the Army was to always strive follow the meanings of the sacred words, "Duty, Honor, and Country". Therefore what I, like most professional soldiers, fear most is dishonour, and would actually prefer "Death Before Dishonour."

And that is the full monty of what I fear.

I forgot, I am also afraid of my wife when she is angry at me. ;)

Words you may wish to look up to improve your vocabulary. (They are underlined above.)
erudite
Death Before Dishonour (a phrase)

Rafael,

Please read my rewrite of your post and see if you can ascertain why I made the changes, them please let me know if you need help on the reasons for any of the changes.

For the last two or three years I have had a fear of loosing professional opportunities due to a failure on my part to devote enough time and energy towards a portion of my studies, thereby not being properly prepared. I guess this fear is normal for a young person to have, however I am studying very hard in order to better prepare myself for the future, and maybe I will avoid this headache.

Again please let me know what you think, because your feedback is important to me.

Thank you,

Francisco,

I would like to suggest one change to your post, please change lost to losing to correct the tense.

Otherwise very good.
Bill,

You understood perfectly the content of my message and I guess your rewrite is more correct and clear than mine.

But I have one doubt that it's below:
In the first line,
you wrote: "For the last two or three years I have had a fear of loosing..."
I wrote: "I have a had fear it's in my mind since two or three years ago..."

When I want to say that am having or doing something, can I not use the "SINCE expression" instead of the "FOR expression"?
I agree with your suggestion, but did I do some grammar mistake in my version?


and you improved my vocabulary, I didn't know what is DUE TO, now I know its meaning...

Thank you so much!

Rafael,

I did not use in my mind because it is some what redundant since all fears are in the mind.

I used For the last .. to indicate an indefinate time and since would indicate an definate time such as "Since 2008 ...

Hope this helps.

Again thanks for replying and allowing me to try and help your studies of the English language.
Bill,

Now I understand the difference between FOR THE LAST and SINCE.

With respect to the sentence below, what do you think about it?
"From about two or three years ago, I have had a fear of loosing..."


Again, thanks!

Again, thanks!
Rafael,

In this contex From and Since would have the same meaning and For is still the prefered word.

Good questions.
thanks for your help!
I could understand perfectly your explanation.
I think it's cockroach :o .Maybe because when I was a child I remember it climbed from my foot till my neck.Just chills me the thought of that slimy thing.But about any othe insect I have no problem at all.I just think they're perfect creatures of God.

How about "... cockroach crawled up my leg until it reached my neck", "... as far up as my neck"?

Instead of "But about any other insect..." you might have chosen to say and write, "As for the other insects..."

Of course, I do not possess the final word on writing. Others please correct my errors. Thank you.
I'm afraid of frogs and snakes :O
Don't laugh, it's serious. Hehe!
