    For the past few years of my life I've dealt with an overwhelming fear of spiders. At first I thought it was just a plain digust for the creatures but as I soon discovered, despite not being medically diagnosed, I'm a full fledged arachnophobiac.

    What Bit Chaz

    That was what bit our beloved Chester. A "Brown Recluse Spider". I'm so scared I had to make Will, who is also an arachnophobiac look up the pic for me. He screamed upon looking at it, while..I...forced to look at other spiders, was sent into a full fledged nerve attack, sweating..shaking violently..and yelping under my breath with the feel of 1000 spiders crawling in my skin(no pun intended.. :wth: )

    Will, and Me are severe arachnophobiacs..just the sight of the creatures can haunt us for hours.

    I dont think I can go living in fear...so I may go through painful and horrifying therapy to cure this.

    I'm shaking just thinking about it....i need help.

    I wish there was a cure for it, but there's not. Phobias are psychological diseases that can't really be treated.

    Damn spiders. *shudders*

    Eww @ that spider.

    I am not that scared of spiders. The big evil ones are bad though. I see lots and lots of spiders so thats why I am used to them.

    I have Arachnophobia too. I don't know what to do to try and make myself better I just try to not think about it. I see them all the time around my house. One time one was in my shirt and I ripped my shirt off and started like crying/screaming.. it was bad. Another time I went to take a drink and it was on my hand and I like threw my cup and started crying/screaming. That was all around the same time too.. :wacko:

    well the worst spider we get in Newfoundland is your basic spider. they still scare the sh!t out of me. Once there was a giant one on my back and i almost sh!t myself. Besides that its the only spider in Newfoundland, we don't have Poison ive or anything realy dangerous besides those people that are in jail.

    I could watch spiders but not for hours. I actually wouldnt watch them at all because I would get bored. But I dont mind them.. unless they are in my room and I am trying to sleep. :p I like small spiders the best because they are small.

    I don't like spiders, but it isn't to the point where I have Arachnophobia. Hope everything goes well Derek. ;)

    Same for you Will. :)
