    Given that you have used the noun "fear" in the first half of the sentence,I would stick with it and use the noun in the second half - "impatience".

    I would remove the definite article though.

    Note the correct spelling of "(im)patient/ce".

    (Note that Ferdie is filipino/a. Using 'e' to represent an /eɪ/ sound is unsurprising. I imagine s/he learnt primarily by ear. )

    Oops! My mistake. Yeah, I am not really good at pronouncing words, but I'm doing my best to improve this. I listen to native speakers of English when I practice my pronunciation.

    Dekaselinos - you need to start a New Thread for this question which is completely unconnected to the original thread on which you have posted. You won't get many replies here.
