My Gerontophobia Fear of Old People

So one day I went to a nursing home with my church and I walk in the front door and I went in the Cafeteria and I saw some old people and my heart started beating faster. Then they told us to go and talk to the people and ask then how their day was going and stuff like that. So I went and I shook the lady's hand and I started shaking. and I was getting really sweaty and I was about to started to cry. So every time the church goes to the nursing homes to give gifts and stuff I ask my mom not to go. Or I go help out and play Bingo I call out the letters and numbers because i'm to afraid to go talk to them or touch them. Also I hate they way old people smell.
