I don't think I've got spider phobia but I hate them so much, I just can't stand them, I don't get scared when I see them but when it comes to picking them up and throwing them away I literally get the chills. Thinking about this alone makes me want to shiver. I've seen this skinny one today with 8 legs, somewhat small body but it looked mutated because the two front legs were so long compared to the rest. Flushed it down the toilet but first used like 1/5th of a toilet roll to pick it up. I don't know why I'm scared of them but it's definitely not because I'm scared that they might bite me or anything like that. I find them hideous and killing them is not an option because that just makes it even more unpleasant for me. Killing them would probably be the last thing I'd do, picking them up would be the second last. I even find it repulsive to step on a spider and crush it with my shoes, that's something I'd never do. I don't know, maybe I'm just weak hearted but fuck I know a lot of people that are scared of spiders. I don't think I will ever overcome my fear. I found this picture on Yahoo Answers and I'm disgusted, this is definitely much larger and completely different than the one I saw today but I can't even look at it for more than a few seconds. If I saw one in real life, I'd probably get a heart attack. :| WARNING (Read the above before you click.): http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2637638535/ Share your stories.
