I have a serious fear of leaches. I know they can't hurt me, but they freak the hell out of me. I had one on me last week at work ( in a vineyard), I screamed and cryed and carried on, squeeling " get it off me, get it off me" etc etc. Some of the blokes laughed. They don't understand. If it was a snake or a spider, I would of been OK, but no, it was a bloody leach, YUCK! Does anyone have any ideas why people might get leach phobias. I have to stop here, I can't talk or think about them to long.
