Creepy, Slimy, Nasty, Crawly Snakes! I Hate Them

Snakes are the nastiest creatures in the world. I see no reason for them. THey are nothing. They scare me to death! I honestly believe that one day they will be the death of me. I am afraid of real ones, fake ones, dead ones, pictures of them. It doesnt mater what type it is I am scared S H I T L E S S of them. I have several experiences of seeing them. And I literally thougt I was going to have a heart attack.

 

The first time I came really close to one, I was 6years old and I was at my grandmothers house and was getting ready to go outside. I almost stepped on it as soon as I walked out the door. I started screaming and took off running back into the house. No one knew what was going on, I was too hysterical to even speak and I couldn't catch my breath. I was standing on the couch refusing to get down because I was afraid it chased me in the house.

 

2 years later on Easter, I was at a family egg hunt and my aunt yelled that there was a snake where I was (just joking) and I freaked out again.

 

The thought of these creatures just haunts me. I can feel them slithering everywhere and therie beady little eyes and ugly tounges! They have no purpose.

 

This is going to sound crazy but when I am driving, and there is one in the road, I can't look at it. I refuse to run over them. I almost go into some sort of a panic attack when I see them. I think that They all need to be dead but the reason I wont hit them is because I think what if they dont die and they somehow manage to get under my car and slither in and get me.

Well if I could get over my fear of flying, moving to New Zeland wouldn't be such a bad idea, but my luck I would get there and snakes would be released! LOL

your phobia of snakes isnt that uncommon... i myself have 5 pet snakes but i can understand why people are afraid of them... i dont like wild snakes, snakes born in captivity that are regularly handled by humans present a MUCH lower threat to people, even the big ones, (two of my snakes are boa constrictors so they are pretty big)... lol... and if your really that terrified of them, move to new zealand, there are no snakes whatsoever in the entire country
