Why? Because I have an abnormal fear of bee's! Seriously I do.
I would say I 'don't know why' this is, but I think I do. I remember being 5 or so and my Grandmother telling me that if my mother were stung by a Bee she would DIE. Yes.... and she went on to say that once she did get stung and her tongue swelled up; she couldn't breathe (or perhaps I imagined this part) regardless this is where my fear was born.
Bee's SMELL my fear; like dogs. I could be hiding in the shower and a Bee will find it's way in and try to attack me! Today I lifted the lid to turn on the BBQ and there was a HUGE Bee inside! I freaked out and hit the 'ignition' button ASAP...poor little bee... NOT.
This bee fear actually gets in the way of my enjoyment of the outdoors, true story. I'm not sure if anyone has a similar fear but the fear is real...panic sets in. I can't stand it actually! I can't eat at an outdoor patio and have become used to the groans and moans from my lunch friends when I request we eat 'inside' on a hot day; I run at the speed of light if I think one is even near me. If a bee is flying around me and my children I will leave them there... my children that is..yes.. that is how much fear I have. I remember once when my son was a baby in a stroller and I left him in the stroller as a bee flew around while I ran like a lunatic down the street flailing my arms in the air.
Funny hey? Funny but embarrassing. Imagine me a grown woman running and screaming over a little bee?
One time recently it took me twenty minutes to come in my house. Everything was delayed; dinner, homework and why? Because a bee was sitting on my front door (waiting for me of course) and I couldn't bring myself to just go shoo it away and so stood there like a moron waiting.
The only time the bee comes in handy is when I'm running (like for real running) and I want to stop; because I can't breathe. If I see a bee; even if I can't breathe; I sprint like a Cheetah.
The Birds (You know the movie) hey..that was cool..I love horror films..even cheesy ones..BUT The Bee's (The movie) forget about it! I had nightmares for weeks!!
|Not this movie...I liked this movie..kinda|
I feel a little better about myself knowing I don't have a fear of something dumb like frogs...(ha ha I dig at my cousin)..but you know..I'd still rather not have the fear!
|These are Killer Bee's -- But I'm not really afraid of them..just the mullets|
OK... so you can all wipe the tears of laughter from your eyes...
How do I get over this fear of bee's?? I mean seriously people? Hypnotism? Would that actually work?
