This really stresses me out.

I keep thinking there is a mouse around and it puts me on edge and nervous.

How can I overcome this?

Big field mice! Millions of them.

I dont think mice bite burt. I used to feed them. Do you like gerbils?

I guess so. Gerbils and hamster are not so bad.
Think of them as pets, very soothing to do this. I like cats, dogs, chinchillas, turtles, gerbils, snakes. Ect. I used to feed deer with my hands. But yeah an open field of mice scares me. Not finny.

The last mouse I saw in my house about 6 months ago. He was actually quite cute because he ran into an obstacle and fell over :D

Aw poor baby. What about rabies? Do mice get rabies? Could this be a reason you fear them?

I was fearful of mice until someone I knew had a pet rodent and it was adorable. It had a personality, was lovable and cuddly. I even held it.
I'm not afraid of them like I was before. We're usually afraid of what we're not familiar with.

Maybe I would run around screaming stepping on them to run away. Then again they might tickle.
