Taxidermy Phobia. Finally .. people who understand me, thank you!! :]

by Kimberly

So, I've had my fear since I was about 5 years old. I'm now 16 years old and my family never understands me about it. When I see them and am made to go into places with them, I cry.. usually. I'm usually ok with going into Walmart, as long as I know where they exactly are. Some Walmarts will have them on the left side of the store, in the Sporting Goods, when you first walk in; then others, on the right. I usually get freaked out and my little brother teases me about it -.- I know they're dead, they can't hurt me or anything, everyone tells me that, but yet.. I still can't stand being ANYWHERE near them, even when I know they're there. I hate going into Walmart and am most of the time, paranoid of it. Yet, I do it anyway, although, I don't like going into places where I most likely know that they're there, but not sure where. I will, to the day I die, not step into a Cabela's or a Bass Pro Shops.. they are filled with deer heads, moose heads, etc. Any kind of outdoor stores, I'll never walk into. Some camper, RV, and boat places close to where I live I will never step foot into because of my fear. BBQ places, I will never step foot into again... I have before and I ended up crying and eating out in the lobby of the restaurant, so I didn't have to be around the deer head. Thankfully, I'm glad I'm not the only one and there are other people who understand me, and who have this fear, just like I do. No one around me understands it, because they don't know what it's like to go through it. I've been in this one museum, where I thought there was gonna be something like that in there, but there wasn't and I was afraid for nothing. But I usually have to ask my parents to scope out most places. To the stories I have actually been reading, thanks for letting me know about the Texas Roadhouse!! I'll never go into there.. ever. -.- I swear, I'm glad I found this site. I never knew what my fear was called until now, it's a "Taxidermy Phobia". Now that I know... I have to thank everyone for sharing their stories. The ones I've read, sound SOOOOOOO much like me, even though most of them are from people in their 20's, 30's, 40's, or 50's.. but THANK YOU. To the ones who may read this and not have this fear... DON'T JUDGE US. -.- 'Cause I'll immediately say FU to you!! -.- Thanks for reading.. I'm glad I can finally share my story with people who will ACTUALLY understand what I go through :) So thanks... :)
