Irrational fear

I want to go outside and read out in the sun. But I cant.

Why not? I hear you asking.

Because, what if a wasp or bee lands on me, thats my fear.

I know, highly unlikely, since there arent even flowers in my yard. But still. I’m so fearful of it happening, that it stops me from going out.

In fact, I rarely go outside in the sun on my own, and, if I do go out with people, I make them be on the look out just in case a wasp or bee lands near me or on me.

Silly isnt it? Thats my mind, irrational and very very fearful.

Its so frustrating and annoying. I just want to be able to enjoy our good weather, we dont get it too often!

  1. This may sound so crazy–no surprise there–but they seriously say that sliced cucumber keeps away wasps. They suggest that if people go outdoors, they should put sliced cucumbers out–maybe on a plate–since there is something in it that repels wasps, and they suggest not having any other food out, especially NOt drinks with sugar in, since that attracts them. They also say to wear white and not patterns that look like flowers, and that helps keep them away since they don’t mistake you for a plant. Mint plants do too, so if you planted your whole yard with mint, which grows wild, it keeps away wasps and bees. There are natural repellants too, like catnip oil is used to keep bees away. Good luck with it. I’m sorry you feel scared of them.

  2. I’ve also heard this about cucumbers. I am myself also afraid of wasps, never tried doing it though, so can’t verify it in any way. But yes there surely are ways to keep them away. Plus I don’t think tey’re so very active already, so far I haven’t come across any bees and wasps this year yet.
