I decided to use a phobia that I suffer from I suffer from coulrophobia a persistent abnormal and irrational fear of clowns that compels avoidance despite the understanding by the phobic individual and reassurance by others that there is no danger And my fear extends to circus music clown outfits clown voices etc My mother claims I have been coulrophic since birth but for this essay I need to pinpoint a moment in my life that could have caused my phobia So I will use my earliest memory of not only clowns but of fear and sadness When I was 4-years-old our home phone rang in the middle of the night It was a family friend named Becky My mother came and got me out of bed loaded me in the car and we headed to Beckys house I knew something was wrong because my mom was crying and wouldnt tell me anything Becky lived not too far away in an old mansion She collected clowns Her wallpaper was clowns her furniture her phone her dishes and her artwork She had clown music boxes statues and figurines There was a shelf ran around her entire living room and its purpose was to display clown keepsakes When we arrived at Beckys house we were greeted in the foyer by many of my relatives While I had no real sense of time I knew that it was odd for my family to be randomly assembling at Beckys I could tell everyone was sad My mom then proceeded to try to tell me about death and angels and tell me that my grandfather had gone to be with Jesus At that moment all I remember is the room seemed to be spinning around and all I could see were swirls of color and clowns everywhere In the background I couldnt hear my family I could hear was the sound of circus music playing from one of Beckys music
