Fear of dead animals?

Ok, so I have a strange situation. I have a fear of dead animals, but in Science, I could dissect the frogs and baby octopi with no problem whatsoever. But, my Science teacher, Mr. W also passed around animal skulls, and also has a dead stingray in a jar in the back of the room. Those things I can NOT stand. Also, when my guinea pig died a month ago, of course I wasn't okay with his death, but I was fine with handling his body, even with out gloves. I even kissed him on the nose before putting him in the shoe-box. Weird, huh? I don't have a fear of blood, just of mostly 'road-kill' rodents, dead human bodies, and decaying animals of any kind. Does anyone know how I can get over my strange fear? Sorry if I grossed anyone out

Soooo do you have a fear of the emotional side of death? Not the result of death.

This is weird. Lol.

I don't have a fear of dead animals but I become uneasy if I see them, road kill especially because I'm nervous while glaring at 'it' that I'll see it twitch or something.

This is somewhat off topic but it's kind of funny...
Last night I go to pick up my brother from work, I see a dead skunk in the parking lot on my way to the entrance. I sit there for a few minutes all nervous because it looked...suspicious, like it could still be alive finally brother comes out and I say "I have to turn around. There is a dead skunk and I need to make sure it's dead" and he asks why, so I respond with "if it's not I have to run it over!" he got shifty eyed about it LOL. So we're driving along and I go "is it dead?! It looks dead...is it?!" and he goes "Oh yeah, it's dead. It's not moving." I go "are you SURE?!" and he pauses while starring at it...then announces it was a shirt. I diiiiied laughing, but I kind of thought he was lying because he just wanted to go home. Today, dropping him off...sure enough there lays a shirt. >.<

Okay so...obviously that doesn't help you any, but I at least hope you laughed half as much as I did

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia
