I've had/had arachnophobia since little because ALL we learned about in 1st grade was the bad ones. None of the good. Then a ganater came and got class because there was a black widow in the guys bathroom. To top it off the movie arachnophobia came out at the same time and my folks went and took me to it. Lived by mountain so would get tarantulas found etc and just went from there. We get scorpions too and snakes but spiders are the worst for me. Actually just yesterday there was a garden snake in front of house and scared the living sh&t out of me because my dog got out and saw it and I didn't know if rattle because so quick so had to grab her so fast I felt bad cause think choked her when pulled her so quick and she wasn't happy with me but I would rather get bit by a rattle than my dog at least THAT would be covered by medical lol anyways answers yes sorry so long just blabbing away. Lol
I scream and make my hubby kill spiders. I can't do it. I'm always afraid they're going to jump on me!
I am so glad you guys are like me! My parents live 2 mins away and I have called my dad to come "rescue" me from spiders on multiple occasions. Oy!
I think it's natural to some extent to be adversed to these little creatures. A survival instinct of a sort. I was inspecting bridges in a semi-desert area of Alberta, Canada. This meant climbing all over and under them (naturally), and they had many spiders on them. I had this spider phobia at the time. What I noticed, and this helped, the little creatures did there very best to get away from me. Often they would jump off, and spin a threat of web all the way down to the water, river or creek, far below. Yes, my fear is greatly diminished since then, but I do know how bad it can be.
