    Re: shocked of ,freaked out of,frightened of, scared of

    The first two are not correct English. The third and fourth are possible, but I suspect they don't mean what you intended them to. I have suggested before that you use a dictionary first. Often you will find a satisfactory answer there - immediately. If you have problems with the definitions or examples, then you can come back to this forum for help.
