I'm officially...

...afraid of balls.

Not THAT kinda balls, mind you.

It's the balls we use to play basketball, baseball, and other games.

Well, I think I developed that phobia in primary school.

I wasn't good in basketball and my PE teacher had something against me.

Then one time in high school, I was playing baseball with a friend and I was trying to hit the baseball when the baseball came smashing into my face, exactly between my nose and my lips. *ouch*

I was wearing braces then...It hurt soooo bad I thought I was going to lose a few teeth but thank God I didn't. However, one of my coloured rubber bands came off.

From then on, I told myself not to play with ANY type of (game) balls.

But when I came here, I thought maybe I don't have that phobia anymore and what do you know?

Got hit by a basketball again right at my nose! >.<

And now I'm thinking...how do I ever learn any sport involving balls?

*shrugs*

I MUST overcome my phobia...but how?! =S
