Would any wordsmiths be able to help?

I am writing a story for the GC and I need a long list of words beginning with F. The list so far is frazzled, frightened, fearful, so any more along the same lines would be great. They do Not have to be English, or real words, just words that sum up a state of fear.

The heroine of my story Is s ‘righter of wrongs’ and is designing a website to advertise her business if that helps.
Thanks.

What a lovely idea Flossieturner
When it is freezing cold my GC and I have been heard to say that we are absolutely 'Frozzenigated' if that's any help?

These are brilliant thank you. How about this, the story contains several hybrid animals, for example a Cowganroo and then Octomouse. So judging by your help so far I can pass this little task over to you. I will give you all credits and share the royalties
