    My Biggest Fear

    I can't stand spiders but it's only the big ones I don't like. A few weeks ago, I saw a huge one about the size of my palm run across my living room floor and disappear under my sofa before I could kill it. I never did find out what happened to it but I suspect it may have...

    Spiders: Tiny Assassins

    I have been afraid of spiders my ENTIRE life. Small ones don't usually bother me that much, but I still kill them if there's no risk of it jumping on me. If it's bigger than a quarter I WILL NOT touch it or go near it. I have to have someone kill it for me. If a spider even...

    Is anybody else afraid of the way they crawl?

    That is what has always scared me the most about them. The size doesn't matter. If it has those disgusting, hairy eight little legs I will not go near it!

    "It'S More Scared Of You"

    I'm a 21 year-old male, 182 cm. A spider fell in my hair the other day and I swear to all that is holy, I screamed like a tween girl at a Bieber concert and started hyperventilating. I cannot STAND spiders. I can't even kill them. If there happens to be one on my ceiling, or...

      I've always been afraid of spiders. And as soon as I was just okay with them, one day a spider fell down my shirt. I know this may sound silly, but that traumatized me. Now anytime I see a spider whether it be big or small I freak out. I can't even kill them like I use to...

    If one EVER touched me I swear my heart would

    explode! I know they're smaller than me but some of them are poisonous and deadly if they bite. The way they move freaks me out and they always look like they want to attack me. YIKES!

    Yup, Same Here

    Well, I'm not really sure if I'm "deathly" afraid of spiders, so you decide. :P Whenever I see a little, tiny spider I get scared enough to back away. But then I kill it, and then I don't know why, but I feel sorry for it after a while. xP Now, it's a whole different story when I...

    Omfg It's Not Even Funny

    I am so deathly afraid of spiders, it's not even funny. Even just looking at pictures of them is scary. Even cartoon spiders are scary. I KNOW they can't hurt me (unless they're poisionous, which just brings a whole new factor into my unbearable fear...) but they are so creepy...
