Just think... "Whats the worst that can happen" I think its brave of you to try and overcome it, I personally aren't really bothered by them but my girlfriend is terrified of spiders and moths... which is odd since she has 2 lizards... and feeds them crickets! You're probably making it seem bigger than it is What is the worst that can happen? They dont bite unless they are really really big! Good luck!!!
the thing is, i just see it and its legs and the whole body it just looks i dont know scary. i mean humans are so much bigger and i know spiders dont do any harm unless they are larger than your common average house spider but i just freak
im a firm believer in conquering your fears and if you want to do something you have to do it yourself.
when i get the courage one day i might be able to go near it, i was scared of wasps a while back they dont seem as bad any more.
right now though im quivering with sweat turning cold and fear running through me. i wonder if i could be hypnotised for this kinda thing?
Not hypnotised, but you can be paralyzed with fear. I happen to be deathly scared of small spiders, but big ones don't bother me. I remember as a small child being bitten by a black widow, and I nearly died. But I'm attempting to overcome it. I killed several spiders, and after basking in the death of my fellow creatures (mwahahaha) I've overcome it.
Hey just remind yourself that its just a little bug...sure it could harm you but whats the worst that could happen...there are few deadly spiders. Me i just had a black widow in my room the other night. I have had a 8" (head to tail) scorpion right next to my head when i was in bed. I have had a vinageroon/sunspider with me in my bed. I live in the desert so this sort of thing is common. I am just scared to death when one is on me! when one is on the wall i just smack it...although sometimes i have to get worked up...sometimes i torture the things...just gives me some sort of satisfaction; anyone else like that?
