Phobia anyone?

If you have a phobia you know how hard it is to deal with whatever it is you are scared of.

I have arachnophobia.

I am absolutely petrified of spiders. No matter how tiny they are. Of course if they are huge its worse. I don't discriminate with spiders though, I'm scared of them all.

So what did I do? Me the arachnophobic decided to buy a house that has them inside and outside. They are EVERYWHERE! Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating a bit.... but not so much. I know they are on the trees and my basement and they crawl up to my living space every now and then. In my head though? They are EVERYWHERE. I cannot tell you how difficult it was for me to sleep the first few nights. I keep thinking they are going to attack me. The worse part is since I've moved in, I keep having nightmares that they are indeed attacking me.

The way they look. All those legs. Their spider webs. Ewwwwww. Don't get me wrong, I like the web... when it comes to the Internet. And I love Spiderman, but case in point: see what that tiny spider do to Tobey Maguire? It bit him!

I don't like it. End of story. I don't care how they are good because they eat all other bugs. How do I know they don't look at me thinking I'm a bug? What if they think I'm dinner? They probably do. In fact, I'm sure they look at me whispering to each other: "look at that nice piece of meat, lets get her while she is sleeping." Little bastards! I give them a roof and they plan on devouring me. How ungrateful.


  1. LOL! You crack me up!!

    I'm terrified of snakes. TERRIFIED! I know my sister-in-law has snakes around her house since they live near a large grassarea and all I can think is "I could NEVER live there!"..

    Oh, and they live about a mile away from me so that does little to calm my fears :-O

  2. im scared to of them too..any that moves... n the dark i hate the dark

  3. ME TOO! If I see even a teeny tiny spider, I scream and run away. My husband thought I was being dramatic while we were dating, but now he distracts me if he sees one (probably so I don't pierce his ear drums) so he can get rid of it.

    Fall is the worst! They all come inside when it gets chilly! ICK.

  4. Nice piece of meat? I agree with that one, I think you are cute.
    I'm scared of the dark and snakes too like the previous posters. Those things are freaky!

  5. I'm scared of heights. And I don't mean tall towers - anything higher than a chair. I even cried last year when Todd was on the roof because it scared me to watch him. I know - I'm crazy.

    Unfortunately (for me) I run into stairs and high places more than I do spiders or snakes or other creatures.


I heart comments, thanks for leaving one =)
