Fear of Chopped Wood

by Jersey

Anytime I see a bundle of wood or a campfire I immediately cringe and get depressed. I can accredit this to a near, self-inflicted amputation while chopping wood. Seeing any kind of axe or chopped up wood makes me imagine not only the physical pain of losing a foot, but the emotional agony pursing such an accident. On my first swing ever with an axe, I shanked the side of the wood and redirected the axe 1 inch from my toenails; the dirt kicked up all over my legs. Even reminiscing on the event causes extreme discomfort and distress. Is this fear of chopped wood a phobia?
