Hi there, Today my father found a big spider on the stairs, I was near, so he warned me to stay back. He knows I have spider phobia. When I think about spiders I get all sweaty and scared... I hate spiders! It was winter past four, five months, so there was no spiders around. But it is starting to get warmer. And when summer comes, the spider invasion comes too... So todays spider reminded me to do something about this horrible spider fear. (I know this will not be easy, probably impossible, doh) I googled for some solutions, but there were many pictures of ugly spiders, so i was too afraid to look.(argg) Also I looked at an existing thread on this forum, but some idiot put a picture of a really ugly spider in it. You can imagine my reaction! (reading, reading,.. BAM, a spider!!!) This guy has very similar or almost identical spider phobia as me. As you can see it is very extreme. So, is there anyone who also has spider phobia, extreme as mine? Has any of you defeated(i know the word isn't right, bad eng.) spider phobia, and how? Interesting question: Is it genetic? my parents aren't afraid of spiders. So it might pass away when older.(i really, really hope so!!!) Help! Oh, IMPORTANT: Don't post any spider pictures in this thread, I am serious!
