So far, I’ve only been posting about OCD, but unfortunately I do not only have OCD, but I also have a couple of pretty weird phobias – which I guess have absolutely no connection to my OCD.
One of them may sound funny to most of you: I’m terribly afraid of chocolate chip cookies.
Yes, that’s true. I’m not joking…I know it sounds ridiculous but it’s unfortunately true. Just to show you an example of what kind of chocolate cookies I’m afraid of, I have also attached an image – and yes, it’s terribly scary for me to look at it.
Obviously, this phobia is not making my life much harder, but it’s still pretty inconvenient especially that you can not really tell it to anyone as most of the people would simply make fun of you or laugh at you – or simply think that you’re just joking. (And I guess many of the readers will also think that I’m not being serious.)
Looking at chocolate cookies can literary scare me to death. It all started when I was a kid and I’d just cry if someone gave me chocolate cookies. Then, this whole thing continued in my teenage years, when my cousin and my friends would bring me some chocolate cookies to make me run away – which was a totally cruel thing.
And yes, nowaday it’s getting slightly better cause for example I could still look for the picture above and attach it to my post but I still avoid looking at it and also at McDonalds, I’ll always try not to look at chocolate cookies (I could actually never understood why they even sell chocolate cookies – it’s just scary). But then at least, I’m not running away from chocolate cookies anymore, so that’s already a huge step.
I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to overcome this fear because it’s not something that has a huge impact in my life, so I prefer simply avoiding it – however, writing a post about it seemed to be a good idea to me as I’ve tried to google if anyone had the same fear but I haven’t found anything similar, so I just really want to know if I’m the only one who’s scared by chocolate cookies of if there are any more people with the same fear.
So, please feel free to comment if you have the same phobia! – and as you may have seen in some of my previous posts, I sometimes laugh at myself so I’ll not be offended if any of you makes fun of my phobia – even though it’s really not a joke.
