An example of why you leave mental health issues to professionals and not to random jerks or “friends” as you called them. One of my grandfathers was terribly allergic to bees and wasp stings. He nearly died from one once. Fortunately my Mom (his daughter) came by while he was having a reaction and got him to the hospital.
fear is not a mental heal issie it's a core emotion and very very normal. what OP described is not a phobia either so no need for professional intervention. also, OP was talked into what happened I'm sure if they were allergic they would have told their friends. no need to be so serious over a failed attempt at helping.
I would drop them as friends in qn instant! I am absolutely terrified of bees, or anything that stings, I've slowly gotten better over the years but it's still really hard. I can't handle them flying at my face and absolutely hate out door gatherings with food because there's always bees and wasps flying around the food so I just sit there in full on anxiety mode not being able to enjoy myself. if one comes near me I get the full on tingly arms and panick feeling. you aren't alone!
