Fear: Try to identify the origin of this fear, did you actually get hurt by a bee or are you transferring fear in general to this situation. Talk openly with a trusted friend about the worst case scenario, what you expecting and then journal about what is actually likely to occur. Compare reality with fantasy and remind yourself of the facts daily. Seek therapy if it persists. Best.

Brief counseling: This is an unwarranted and unwanted fear and is called a phobia. A skilled therapist can help you uncover the reason for your fear and then educate you as to how you can resolve that fear.
