    The Worst Insects For Me

    Actually, I don't fear them as much now as I did years ago. One day, I realized that I wasn't going anywhere with just screaming and hiding, so I started learning how to be a good cockroach-killer. I would creep up to them with either a slipper or something that can...

    I've Encountered One

    I was traveling on business and had to go deep into the heart of the city. The city was filthy, scary, unfamiliar, but I could clearly see my hotel was just a couple of blocks away. Bravely, I made my way across several streets, watching the myriad of traffic and trying to...

    Roach Soup

    There's nothing on Earth that creeps me out more than roaches. Especially those really big ones. I live in the country so sometimes they come in from outside. Oh that scares the **** out of me. I even have nightmares about them. Last night I dreamed i was in a chinese resturant...

    Flying Cockroaches

    My worst fear is when it lands on me and scurry all over my body. Whenever I see a roach, I imagine all the disgusting places they crawl out from. When I was a kid, I use to catch cockroaches with my bare hands. Nowadays, I whine in fear when I see one. The bad news is, my...

    They Are All After Me

    Ok, I have been thinking about undergoing hypnosis for this fear of roaches,I think  about them all day. I have seen a few in my house. Usually in my bathroom. So every time I awaken in the night to use the bathroom, I tip toe cautiously around in deathly fear that...

    Waving Waving Waving!

    Once, I used to be a roach killer extraordinaire. Adept at smashing and adept at bashing them into flattened pastes of roaches. Very handy with a shoe! And then, I became fairly good at trapping them, catching them and then sending them outside to roam These days, I just...

    My Biggest Fear

    I fear roaches because of the diseases, viruses, germs and bacteria they carry.  And then again, they are just gross and filthy.  I run from them when i see them.  I wont even go into a person's home who i suspect may have roaches.  They are just way too...

    Flying Roach Vs. Me.. He Won

    For some reason, these damn things never bother anyone else in the house, only me. Every time I use the restroom, I carefully scan the area for a roach, I have seen one in the bathroom before and believe it is the source of all my horror. But the other night, I came in ...

    Roach Showdown

    Roaches. They come in all different shapes and sizes (although the worse tend to be big.) So, I was eating alone when I saw it for the first time. The size of my index finger. Roachzilla. This thing is a ******* kaiju in a bug sense. Instantly, I dashed for a flip flop and a can...

    Now my Buddhist views on life and acceptance can handle most any adversity but I am kinda creeped out by cockroaches and I tend to smack 'em as quickly as I can! You see, I was at my (adoptive) sister Faye's house once and let's just say that home keeping was NOT her strong suit...

    This Is So Mean!

    My husband knows how much I am afraid of roaches. He thinks it is funny. The other morning he saw a giant one on the ceiling so he killed it but kept the body. He then came up to me with it in his hand and kept shoving it in my face and threatening to throw it on me. I was...

    I'm Allergic

    I don't really know how that works at all, but when I was tested for allergies when I was like eight they said that I was allergic to roaches. I've pretty much been avoiding them ever since.
