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.
