Re: Spider phobia is controlling my life...
There are therapists who work with people with phobias and they help them get over it. In the case of spiders, what they do is over a period of time, slowly get you to become comfortable with a spider nearby, and eventually get you to even hold it. Yeah I know, sounds scary....I have the spider thing too, always have. And I've had the spider in the car...fortunately my husband was driving but did almost go off the road because of me. Anyway, there are people who help with this sort of thing and know how to treat it....and I've also heard that hypnosis can work, too.
