When I'm not in my right mind, my left mind gets pretty crowded...********************
So does my hair...
You are not alone in this.....I am terrified of ANYTHING with eight hairy legs....and will go so far as to only walk on furniture because I saw one on the floor....lol
I don't know about you but I can't get close enough to them to even squish them....cuz they might jump on me and then I would poop my pants and well....you get the picture....lol
My way of dealing with them as I am home alone a great deal is if I see one, I grab the hair spray....literally lacquer them to the wall....lol Of course my boyfriend grumbles a bit about the shiny spots on the wall....but it does kill the spider and I know exactly where it is and that it can't jump on me....LOL
Winter will be here soon hon, and in the meantime, keep the hair spray handy....
It is not a stupid phobia. Your feelings are very real to you. They are your feelings and you are entitled to them. Like you, I'm afraid of spiders and basically any insect at all. I hate them, they *totally* freak me out. I'm shuddering just thinking of them. I was in the middle of a shower once and spotted something moving. I stood up on the sides of the tub and yelled at the top of my lungs for my husband to get his a** in there right now, screaming, sobbing. In he came, I'm soaking wet, soap dripping and yelling at him to get the thing out of my shower. I couldn't be in the tub with it. He asked why I didn't just run it down the drain with the water? WHAT? I can't look at it, I can't run it down the drain. What if it's a jumping bug and tries to get away from the water? And what if it lands on or near me? Oh no, you get it out of here right now. Sometimes he thinks it's funny to show me bugs that are outside. Or he'll pretend to pick one up and try to show it to me. I flip out every time. He thinks it's funny. I guess he just doesn't really get it. He likes to play jokes on people. He's not trying to be mean, I honestly think he doesn't understand my fear. It's very real to me. The other day, I spotted a bug in between the double paned windows we have while we were getting ready to WOO HOO. I made him get rid of it right then and there. He got mad and then decided he didn't want to WOO HOO anymore. I just knew that it was going to be looking at me the whole time. I knew it was there, I couldn't just *ignore* it. I felt bad that he was mad, but there was no way I could have it there. Every fear is real if it's real to you. It's yours, do not feel bad.
BTW, JKRsgirl-my hubby does the same thing, he'll catch them and take them outside! This also happens to be one of the times he pretends he's going to show it to me, what if it jumps out of his hands and on me? Not funny!
There, now I'm off my soapbox!
