Snakes = Panic Attacks

I don't know when it all started, but if I see a snake, whether on TV or in person, I go into a full blown panic attack.  On Memorial Day weekend, My boyfriend and I went to this wildlife refuge place near our home.  We were going to check out this little pond for turtles.  I spotted a snake and that was that.  I completely froze with fear, started crying, shaking, and I felt as if I couldn't breathe.  No snake sightings for me...

My uncle is the same way. We were in Canada at our family reunion. We get together once a year great times. We were checking the boats to see if we could use any for fishing. He bent over to life the boat. And as he picked it up a snake just slithered away. I tell you, I never heard such a high pitched scream coming from a man before. Probably, me telling his son and calling him Claries all day didn’t help. :P
