Post Arachnephobia

Hello Everyone,

This post is about my father, who is deathly affaid of spiders. He is now 76 and has been scared to death of them for as long as I can remember. I'm 37 and moved back in with him about a year ago when his health wasn't that good, and realized he has the same fear.

I would think after time it won't be as bad and everyone is different. Anyway this is my first post and wanted to say hello to everyone.

Hi ScareCrow

Welcome to the board.....

I'd love to know what the most common phobia is....I reckon spiders would be well up the list.....I don't mind furry ones but I can't handle the ones with spindly legs that fly. 'Daddy Longlegs' we call them in the UK...

Nice to see you here...

Yeah daddy long legs are annoying!! I have to rescue them out of my bathtub before I take a shower. They're harmless, but still they're...creepy.

I am SOOOOO afraid of spiders!!!!!!! If I see a spider I start to shake for a few seconds. And when I think about seeing one, I stark shaking. EVERY time I go in my bedroom, I search the ceiling for spiders. If there is one on my ceiling, I wont sleep in there until it's dead-- and I HAVE to see it's guts and it all smeared or whatever for me to be happy. EWWWWW, yesterday I was outside sitting in a fold-up chair, and I decided to move and sit somewhere else. Well, I un-folded my chair and went to sit down but saw a WEIRD looking spider hanging on the chair. I dropped the chair and shreiked!!! Just the thought of that THING being on me and climbing around made my heart race... and I couldn't stop shaking for awhile!!! Is ANYONE out there like this as well????

Mal
