So Terrified

I am the biggest wuss when it comes to spiders. I don't care how small it is I can't even kill them unless it is like a them or me situation LOL! I will scream for my hubby to come kill it before I will get near enough to smash it. The women I work with know how deathly afraid I am and are very good about "saving" me (our building is like a boarding house for brown recluse spiders). There is no traumatizing childhood experience or anything that can explain this horrible petrifying fear. I know I will have to buck up when the baby gets hear but I really don't know how I am going to do that. This isn't just being ickified by them it is an all out panic-attack crying-fit inducing fear. But I love the movie Arachnaphobia....how weird is that?

I'm the same...I go white and I can't control my breathing, sometimes I feel like I'm going to pass out. Some people like to make fun of it when I get like that but it's no joke sometimes!!

Trust me, I too am deathly, unable to mutter words, frozen in fear, afraid of spiders. But I will say this.... After you have children something inside you will grow balls. Cuz as soon as you see a spider crawling anywhere near your child you will almost immediately muster up all that you have and kill that bloody bastard good. Trust me. The Fight or Flight wont cross your mind for too long. Fight (SQUISH) is all there is.

Your parents must have sung you ALL the lerics to Itsy Bitsy Spider as a child! Very grusom little song. I'll get the lerics and post them in the discussion! Gotta go watch Eight Legged Freaks, so I can refresh the words!!! lol.
