    Terrified... mortified.

    .. petrified... stupefied... by spiders. It doesn't matter how big or how small, whether they can bite or not, poisonous or harmless, I am still afraid of all spiders. I'm not sure why, but I cannot be in the same room as a spider; they creep me out with their beady eyes and...

    I woke up last night having still left the

    light on in my room, and noticed a black spec out of the corner of my eye reflected in the mirror. Turning around, it was a HUGE house spider, chunky body and long legs. Oh god, I thought. I weighed up the options. Shall I just switch the light off knowing this imposter was here...

    Rules 1-6

    1. If I see it, no matter where it is, it needs to die. 2. I cannot touch or stomp or go within 3 feet of it. 3. If it is on me I will need to visit the ER (one time i burned my shoulder with my hairdryer, because one was on me) 4. If it moved under any furniture it will be...

    Trembling

    Spiders and I don't get along. We've never got along. They hate me and I hate them. Once I was on my bed doodling on a scrap of paper when I feel this tingling on my bare foot. It was a spider. A few days later I'm having a bath. I reached down for my towel, and the same spider...

    Earlier Tonight

    Earlier tonight I decided I needed to pee. But after closing the door and turning around, I discovered there was a spider [or what looked like one, I didn't stay around to look very closely] on the toilet lid. Needless to say, I got out of there fast. I then discovered...

    They're more disgusting

    than scary. I can't stand bugs, I don't like them at all. If there's one in my room I call my Mum in to squash it or get rid of it and if she doesn't then I'll refuse to sleep in my room.

    I don't like spiders.

    Especially small ones. I'd kill them or use the vacuum hose & suck them up. The worst ones are the ones with egg sacs. ( shudders while writing this). I even saw one 2 years ago in the bathroom sink the size of a pop bottle lid.

    Wolf Spider Attack! (Dramatic Writing)

    There are two things I know I'm afraid of in this world. 1.) Spiders and 2.) Bigger spiders A few years ago I came across this gargantuan wolf spider in my tiny closet sized room at my mom's house. I am naturally an extremely messy, unorganized person so on a weekly basis I had...

    Last year this big spider camped out on my

    porch. I found that I am afraid of spiders, but if I did not touch it or it did not touch me I was ok. I slowly exposed myself to it a little everyday. I even got kinda curious about seeing what it was doing from a safe distance.

    Last week, I saw a Whitetail spider(native to

    NZ) on my door. I got a lid from the shaving gel can and trapped it. It was quick, but I got it. Bites from those spiders, leave itchy bites worse then mosquitoes.
