    Default Do you get scared?

    AT the moment there are helicopters buzzing all around near my house.

    I just saw on the news that they have had a lead on a missing school girl (presumed dead) in a reserve that we walk to all the time (10 minutes walking at max).

    Normally, i don't think about these things much..but over the last few months there have been "missing posters" for at least 5 people being hung.

    I live in a reasonably good suburb in Melbourne...I am not someone who normally worries that much....but the helicopters are really starting to get to me

    Yikes! What area of Melbourne do you live (north/east/west etc)? I hope that's not near me!

    No I don't get scared. I used to ride my horse in a reserve when I was a teen and a young woman was found murdered there. I also used to rent a property on a lonely dead end rd when a teen was murdered by kids I knew from high school. I have cattle dogs and they are great guard dogs so I always feel safe with them. I was walking one of my dogs in a huge park with bush and my dog was growling and barking when we passed scrub and later that night I got a call from the police asking if I saw anyone suspicious as a lady was attacked there!

    Yes I do get scared, especially if they were to find the girl there and the worst had happened.

    Yep I'm terrified of robbers and getting attacked in and around my home, and the crime rates in my suburb aren't even that bad.

    I did when I used to live in the city. Very much so. But I am far more relaxed living regionally. Not saying bad stuff never happens, because it does - just far less than in the city.

    That is scary - I really hope they find the little girl soon

    I used to but being a single mum I am way more 'mother tiger'. I also installed a security system with a panic button so feel really safe at home. I live in a city area where the crime rate is ok.

    Yeah that would definitely scare me! What a horrible situation

    I never used to get scared. When I was 18-20 I lived on my own (well, with my dog) and I often left windows/doors open and never thought anything of it.

    Since having DD though, everything freaks me out. The slightest noise and I'm wide awake thinking what I would do if it were someone breaking in. I make sure everything is locked and deadlocked. In storms I freak out that a tree might fall through the roof over her bedroom... argh. I'm pretty much just a massive stressball that something may happen to DD.

    Exactly this! I used to never lock up etc - now I'm a mum I'm so scared!
