I know that fear, but have mostly gotten past it these days. I used to be the same about getting out as quick as possible, but later realized that mentality would sometimes make me careless in that effort to quickly get out, increasing the likelihood of causing a problem myself. I now just remain calm and take my time. I also tend to use wheel cribs these days instead of jack stands. I've read threads and made posts on this forum while laying on the creeper under a car waiting for the oil to drain.
