    I am DEATHLY afraid of bees and NO, I'm not allergic.  When I was about 7 or 8 years old, I was wearing a bright orange shirt and I was walking to the store across the street from my parents house.  Suddenly, I felt something extremely fuzzy rubbing ...

    Just Don't Like Them

    I just really do not like them if one comes near me I just find that I can not move. It's not the fact that they could sting me that scares me I think It's the way they just hover and the tendency they have got to follow you. But whatever I just freeze so they are definitely not...

    Some times last week, I was sitting on my back porch and a small bee happens to show up, it was doing its round.  At a point, it came on me and I started somewhat screaming.  My dog looked at me and must've been thinking; what the hell is wrong with this one?  lolAs a kid, I...

    I have never been stung and as far as I know I'm not allergic. I have just developed this insane fear of bees and wasps. I like sunshine in the summer, but I'm afraid to go out because there are bees and wasps there. I run like hell when one comes close and if one ever comes to...

    Bees

    I don't think I'm afraid of bees itself, I'm more afraid being stinged.  I don't know if it is being superstitious or not but I do this as I was told, put my tongue on the palate and the bee won't bite. When I was younger, we went to have a family picnic, there was lots...

    Anaphylactic Shock

    I've been afraid of Bees my whole life. I would get stung on my foot and be unable to breath and my leg would be the size of a baseball bat within a few minutes as the venom slowly crept up it. I'm kind of glad they're slowly being eradicated by pollution and extermination...

    Bee In My Pants

    I have always been afraid of bees and wasps, but my fear has increased since last summer. I had been stung once before, so I knew that I wasn't allergic, but it still scared me. My mom, dad, and brother were on a road trip and we got out to eat at a restaurant. We parked in a lot...

    I hate bees. VERY much.

    I have a phobia of bees and wasps (but especially wasps and ESPECIALLY yellow jackets). It stems from a time when I was a toddler and an adult took advantage of me because I was mildly afraid of a bee, and now I get chills and panic whenever I see them. Silently, of course...

    Never Stung

         I was never stung by a bee before. I think that's why I'm so scared of them. I'm scared I might be allergic or that the sting might hurt really badly or that I could die. I have black hair, which attracts bee stings since it looks like a bear. Once a bee got stuck in my...
