Story of a person with fear of banana
I hate bananas. When i was a kid i used to love bananas, i ate them everyday, all the time, but then i started gaining a gad reflex and throwing them up. that were it all begin… after that i just stopped eating them then i started hating the smell, i started ganging every time i smelled them. then my parents got divorced and all i remember was my father… smashed one in my face and told me to eat it, i washed my mouth out with soap…. Unfortunately that were my greatest fear , i wouldn’t touch or go near them or anyone who had ate one, once my mom ate once then touched my teddy bear, you think i ever touched it again? NOPE… my childhood was constantly like that now that i’m older i can be around them but i have to hold my breath so i don;t smell it, other then that i’m getting better. Thanks for reading my story its pretty embarrassing to tell..
