Irrational Fear of Spiders

... I've been scared of spiders since I saw a daddy long leg kill another daddy long leg (I was 5).. and it didn't help I'm allergic to most... I used to at least be able to dispose of dead ones..
Well.. I had a weaver spider of some sort take up residence in my kitchen yesterday. I left him for my husband to dispose of.. Well, when hubby got home, spidey was no where to be found so apparently he was a jumping spider.. Last night he drowned in a pot that was soaking.. I can barely go near that sink without hyperventilating...which sucks because he's in the sink that has the water filter spout... It's gonna be a long day.
My 9 year old got a lesson in sensitivity because I had to clean the sink out (mostly) to make tea... She was standing there laughing at me because I was hyperventilating.

No more dishes for this momma today.

    I am horrified of bees, wasps etc. They turn me into a sniveling little girl.

      Dude, I don't blame you at all. I am terrified of spiders. We have lots of Wolf spiders down here and they can get pretty big. I get shivers just thinking about them!!

        Have you ever seen the things that look like grasshoppers and spiders had a baby. They creep me out. We have a lot of them here. And we get jumping spiders which look like tiny little tarantulas. They are fuzzy which metallic blue or green eyes. Scared the crap out of me they first time I seen them.

        I hate those fuzzy things! We have those, too.

          These are some sort of non poisonous house spider (I was able to catch one two years ago to take it the local extension office to have it identified) that looks like a brown recluse-they have an extra stripe... They jump...and HURT like heck when they bite. Usually they stay in teh windows and away from here...But I guess the ants found new way into the house so he was following them. Now I can't go into the kitchen without getting chills.
