Scared of children
I'm a 49 year old woman and feel extremely nervous around young children, especially toddlers, and have spent my life avoiding them. I feel very guilty, ashamed and sad, and a freak of nature. I missed my neices and nephews growing up, and now I am a great aunt the whole cycle is repeating itself. I can't talk to anyone about it. I don't know anyone with my phobia - even Googling it didn't bring up any results. I am being tested for Asperger's soon, I hope it's positive as it might be a reason or at least an excuse I can use. There's certainly something wrong with me!
