    Well I mean come on? Who really likes having a

    Hello There (:

    Hello, I'm Katie. I've had belonephobia since I was about 10. It was trauma-induced. I got into a bike accident (with myself and a parked car! I'm clumsy!) And the handlebars pushed my pancreas into my spine, of all things. I was admitted to the Children's Hospital of...
