look up any word, like donkey punch:
Paranoia that comes from smoking Marujuana. You'l start getting scared of everything and will turn to your friend and say "Shit, I've got the fear."

When you know exams/ essay deadines are coming up, but for some reason you just don't care enough to do any work, until at the last possible minute (oftern when it's already too late), the Fear hits you and you suddenly find the ability to work through the night and til the morning.

Jack: Don't you have an essay due on Friday?
Jill: yeah but I can't do it, I've not got the Fear yet.

Ben: Hey,when was the last time you slept man?
Jean: Can't sleep... got the Fear.

The feeling you get after having 3-4 cups of coffee and are not sure you are going to make it to the bathroom.

Usually involves explosive diarrhea.
My god get over and cover my post I've caught the fear!

'The Fear' is the concept of quitting your current job that you don't like in order to give you the motivation to pursue your dream job.

From Friends episode The One Where Rachel Quits (310)
RACHEL: I'm training to be better at a job that I hate, my life officially sucks.
JOEY: Look Rach, wasn't this supposed to a temporary thing? I thought you wanted to do fashion stuff?
RACHEL: Well, yeah! I'm still pursuing that.
CHANDLER: How... exactly are you pursuing that? Y'know other than sending out resumes like what, two years ago?
RACHEL: Well, I'm also sending out.... good thoughts.
JOEY: If you ask me, as long as you got this job, you've got nothing pushing you to get another one. You need the fear.
RACHEL: The fear?
CHANDLER: He's right, if you quit this job, you then have motivation to go after a job you really want.
RACHEL: Well then how come you're still at a job that you hate, I mean why don't you quit and get 'the fear'?
CHANDLER: Because, I'm too afraid.

That feeling that accompanies one when they wake up after a night of heaving drinking, or in the midst of a psychedelic voyage. The individual has an irrational fear of nothing in particular, and often feels worthless and lowly, as if everything they have done has been a lie, and they are a horrible person. The Fear can affect anyone.

Dude Bill got so fucked up last night. He woke up this morning and was talking about how he never wanted to drink again, and that he was going to go to church to pray for redemption from all the bad things he as done, which is a lot.

Gail: Yeah man he's got the fear. He said that last weekend and and the one before that, and before that...

The feeling after blacking out where one cannot shake the apprehension about what may have transpired the night before. Just like after drinking heavily one experiences the spins, the fears occurs after blacking out and does not go away until you find out what happened
