    I despise dolls with a passion,

    even though I have been described as looking like a porcelain doll. It's one of the few things that can actually scare me.

    I used to be terrified of dolls

    but have slowly grown out if it. Mostly because my daughter lives them. I had to realize this was an irrational fear of mine, and beside being afeid of rodents seems more justifiable and rational.
