Anyone else having arachnophobia ?

I do. I just had a huge one in my room ... ugh !!! I almost screamed out loud. I know, they are harmless, but I can't stand them.

Maybe I should have a therapy ...

OMG I so do.

It's so bad I have nightmares.

And I actually am on the waiting list to have therapy

(but it's a two year waiting list so ...)

Not specifically spiders but I just woke up from this horrible nightmare where these centipede-like things were crawling up my body and I kept frantically trying to scrape them off!

What would you call that? Do I need a shrink?

I even think it's freaky to crush them, I hate the sound!

You brutes!

You don't crush spiders, you catch them and put them outside! They are very useful cause they kill all those annoying insects like flies and mosquitos and even those centipedes .

If you are afraid... just ask Janet Jackson to help you. She is THE spider killer... she even ate spiders in her video (Son of a Gun)

um, josh is right....

however, when they're as big as your hand with your fingers spread out wide, i don't rEally know how to go about catching them...and with my brother scared of them as well, it's a brush away the spider fest in my room...

I had to catch one for my lessons biology. I had to kill it with some chemical products and then I had to draw it by looking at it through a binocular. It looks very interesting when you look at it closly.

Normaly I do what Josh said. Catch them and put them outside. They can be very useful indeed.
I do crush musquitos though.
