Arachnaphobia

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 27, 2013, 7:52 PM
Time to tell y'all a little truth about me...I have Arachnaphobia. What is it? Well....it's the fear of spiders.

I'm not kidding, I really am scared of spiders. Whether they be big hairy icky ones(like tarantulas) or little ones(like house spiders), I just can't help but jump and yelp out when I see one, mostly in real-life...(Sometimes I'm too scared to even try and kill it, they freak me out so much XD)

And the strange thing is...I actually don't mind drawing spiders, in fact I find it "fun" to draw the little legs and such.  Weird huh? Well.....I hope it's not "too weird" for you guys..and perhaps I'm not alone on this ^^;

Well, I guess my phobia is a bit of a mild one ^^; I just find it strangely entertaining to draw the legs and the bodies, plus I also happen to like Spider-man too ^^;

I was about to get scared, I thought I read "ArachnaPHILIA"

LMAO XD


Anyway, it's a pretty common phobia, nothing to worry or to feel constrained about.

I hate those little crawlers too. Plus you reminded me that I had made a list of phobias a few years ago and some of them are weird, some are from the childhood, and some.. kind of make sense. If you want I'll send a note to you with a few.

I think my fear is similarto Buttercup's.

She was nervous at first (yeah, more like SCARED) but in the end wasn't afraid to CRUSH them.

I wouldn't be going around and crushing tarantulas though...

Crushing tiny spiders is gross enough. I don't want a big and hairy corpse under my shoe with all them guts sticking out with other gooey parts.


Me: Buttercup, lick it off.

Buttercup: Are you INSANE! *takes my boot off and wipes it on my face*

I hate spiders too.

When I see bugs in my house, it makes me angry and then I kill it.

When I see spiders in my house, it makes me EXTRA angry, nervous, alert and then I do everything in my power to find it - neutralise it.

:D

I do respect life but for spiders, i do it out of safety. Some are toxic, others have painful bites.

After seeing a film as a child where a sleeping man go devoured by tarantulas, I saw a spider SUCK HIS EYE OUT!

Not having any of those eight legged freaks crawl around me in my sleep, I'll kill them FIRST.

But deep down, I love spiders, fascinating little bastards. :D



In my college we have spiders and have to work with them. Last years we had to handle them as a practical session, now people with a fear of them didn't have to.

I wasn't in on the day but if I wasl, I would've given it a try.

I actually don't mind tarantulas despite the fact that the man who was eaten in his sleep was devoured by BIG HAIRY TARANTULAS!

And I loved the movie "Eight Legged Freaks" with the giant mutant spiders. :p


It's the little house spiders with tiny scampy legs that make me angry and nervous. I hardly feel much fear these days for some reason.

I bet if you threw me into the lion's den, I wouldn't feel fear, just get nervous. (Just a guess, I could crap my pants for all I know XDD )

I also hate cellar spiders, there's lots of daddy long legs around. I found some in my house.



OH GOD, I remember once when I was brushing my teeth and between some two candles...

I lean down to spit water and there's this small thred of web and a little white bastard spider making a web....

I forgot what happened to it.


But the SCARIEST one was when I was writing a story and a huge daddy long legs crawled down my laptop screen and sat on my laptop just relaxing...

WHAT THE HELL? I'm just proof reading, quite close to my skin and suddenly... "Oh hey there sir, don't mind me crawling down your screen!"


Ironically, I like Spider-Man. XD

Eeeuugh, Spiders really gross me out sometimes, especially during those nature documentary films(like during their lifescycle...and mating ritual o_o). Blegh! >-<

But strangely, I like Spider-Man too XD How ironic isn't it?
