phobia
by: jess

I've searched this for ages and have finally found this page!! My mum has the worst fear of taxidermy and she has passed it on to me! Its getting ridiculous now I have to get my boyfriend and family to check every new place I go and its so embarrassing asking people at receptions and people who work there its like no one understands! Thank god I'm not the only one! It is a serious phobia. Mum went to a shrink who actually helped her so much that she was in the same room as a stuffed owl. Her fear is mainly of stuffed birds but all animals as well! Mine seems to be the bigger the worse I get. I'd love to talk to someone in the same boat as me. Message back!

my fear runs my life

I have been scared of mounts ever since i can remember... Has anyone tried hypnosis? It pretty much runs my life, its the first thing i look for in a new place and at 21 years old i still ask whoever i am with to go check things out and let me know if there are any before i go in anywhere.

I completely understand.

I used to go screaming from rooms as a small child. And considering I lived in an area where hunting was common there was no shortage of taxidermy. Years later, at 18, I have it more "under control", but I can't be in the same room for long periods of time as a stuffed animal or head, and never alone. Less screaming now though...

Scared too

I know what you mean!!! Taxidermy is the absolute worst! My fear has gone a step further. Even statues and carvings if large animals make mr VERY nervous. I wish there was more info out there about this phobia.
