There are many phobias in the world, some common (heights, snakes, spiders, etc), others so rare as to leave the majority of people who aren’t affected by them scratching their heads.
My phobia is bees. Well, I should add that it’s anything that buzzes and has the capacity to sting, but it’s without doubt bees that sit front and center of my concern. Why, you ask? If I knew that I might be able to figure out a way to overcome my irrational fear.
Now, when I was a young child my terror knew no bounds. Literally – and I’m ashamed to say this – if I had the power to click my fingers and rid the world of bees, I probably would have done so.
