Mommy Knows No Fear

Admit it or not; but most of us Moms are always frantic and we fear almost everything most especially if we know that it can harm our children. But a 44 year-old mom is literally not afraid of anything. Snakes? Spiders? Haunted houses? Name it, and she is definitely a mommy who knows no fear.

According to studies conducted with the Fearless Mommy; she has a rare genetic brain-damaged  which damage a specific brain structure called Amygdala.
As Wikipedia described it, "it is almond-shaped groups of nuclei located deep within the medial temporal lobes of the brain in complex vertebrates, including humans.[2] Shown in research to perform a primary role in the processing and memory of emotional reactions" It is the one responsible for making people feel fear in threatening situations.

Being fearless can be really dangerous most especially to mothers like us. We need to identify what is dangerous and what is not. However, it could be an advantage too because she is able to show example of bravery and courage to her kids. But in totality, I would rather be called coward or panicky in several occasions rather than be totally fearless.

How about you? What could be your greatest fear? Or are you pretty much like the Fearless Mommy?
