Fear Of Lip Ointments

I know that it sounds crazy and ludicrous, but it is true. I've been terrified of them ever since time immemorial, and to this day it still bewilders me. Generally, I am ok with lip gloss, lip balm, or lip stick, but when it comes to other lip products such as Zambuk, Vicks, Petroleum Jelly, MCO, Beauty Butter, and Menthol, I just freak out. I don't know what it is but I just find the packaging and appearance of the aforementioned ointments terrifying and disgusting, and not even to mention the offensive odours!!I could die from such an assault to my olfactory senses. I especially hate it when people apply them and then go on to touch me or my property. One time, a friend of mine applied Zambuk to his lips and then proceeded on to use my colored pens, which really annoyed me as I had to disinfect them afterwards. Such ointment-related experiences are really common in my life that it will take a whole book to recount them. The internet does not seem to have any information on my problem and my friends and family don't even take me seriously. They just think that it's one big joke, and it really saddens and pisses me off. There was once a point in my life when I tried to at least get used to Petroleum Jelly by applying it daily to my lips but I finally gave up as it was too disgusting to carry on. I just don't how long I can entertain this madness because I think it is one of the reasons why I will never want to date, because I seriously don't fancy the idea of kissing Zambuk or Vaseline smeared lips. So I'd rather die a virgin than to put my self through an unpleasant experience. I just hope that one day I will be able to live a normal, ointmentfear-free life but that day doesn't seem to be any where near.
