ecA very good evening to everyone. Thank you for being here today. My name is Ng Shin Kin, also known as SK. As you all are aware, I’m here to present to you about my specific fear. Fear, the mere sight of the word makes us cringe. It is a feeling we have all dealt with at one time or another. It is a feeling that we first experience when we are small, and are conditioned to respond to in many different ways. Some of us live in constant fear; of accidents, of bad people doing us harm, or of physical ailments. Everybody in the world which we reside has a fear of something, including me. The specific fear of mine is the moment when I have to cross the road, technical word in psychiatry is Agyrophobia. I found that I have this specific fear two years ago after an accident. Two years ago, which is year 2010, after my class has ended, I was on my way to the tuition centre which is within walking distance from my school. As usual, I go there by walking. When I was about to cross the road, a Honda MVP appeared out of sudden from the junction and came to me in high speed. Being unable to avoid it, and with the driver slowing down the car, my left feet was trapped under the front wheel when the car has stopped. The driver then moved the car to release my feet. With the help of my tuition teacher and a best friend of mine, I was admitted into the hospital. I was the lucky as I was told by doctor that only my artery was injured, but not my bone. Later that day, I was discharged with swollen left feet and a pair of walking sticks. Since that day, I realized that I fear of crossing the road. I take more time to cross the road in fear of a suddenly appeared car. I need to cross the road with my friends, family or the crowd as in this way, I feel secured. Until today I am still on my way in overcoming the fear. I hope I can overcome my fear in the near future. That’s all for my presentation about the specific fear of mine. Thank you and have a nice day.
