I Am Afraid of Bees

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 248 People

    I don't know what got me To become afraid of

    these.........tiny monsters. I just am. From wasp, bumblebees, Hornets, etc. I avoid them all at all cost. I refuse to even go outside when I see one flying around, waiting for its next victim. I don't know what it's like to be stung. And I DEFINITELY don't want to find out.

    Yesterday afternoon I had woken up from my sleep

    since I work overnights. I then go to the spare bedroom where I keep my laptop. Inside the room I discovered a bee. Instantly my heart rate sky-rocketed. Due to where the bee was, I was only able to get my laptop and not able to get the charger for it safely. That severely...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    When I was a kid I was stung really bad by a bunch of bees. Had a bit of an allergic reaction. You see, bee stings tend to cause me to die. Or so I thought. I got stung last summer on my way to Heat Transfer and nothing happened.... but Im still emotionally tramuatized for...

    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...

    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...

    I think maybe I'm afraid of bees

    for a few reasons. When I was little if I stung on the foot by a honey bee it had to be scraped off so the venom wouldn't get pumped in more by pinching it out. So my parents would come out with a huge knife and scrape the stinger off my foot. Why the huge knife? Why not a...
