im sitting on the bed…shuddering. i kept feeling this tickle on my stomach, kept ignoring it, then finally pulled my top to look at what was going on and SPIDER.
worse still, i swiped it off and now its hiding somewhere in my bedroom. and now im having ‘imaginery tickles’ and i have to keep checking to make sure there arent more.
i feel quite traumatised. if my fi were here id send him on a spider hunt but sadly im alone¬!

@newname_99: OMG, I am on your side. I have a huge bug phobia. I’ve posted about it here. It’s actually embarassing–I once made my 61 year old mother leave work to kill a cricket in my house.
Anyway, one time I was laying in bed, feeling a tickle, and ignoring it, like you. “It’s just your hair” I told myself. “Or your imagination..”
It was a house centipede. ON ME. I won’t post a picture because I’m not cruel.
Or, don’t. It’s traumatic.
I made DH completely take apart the bed every night for THREE MONTHS to check for bugs before I would get in it.

@Quietserenity: OH HELL NO!!! When I was still living at my parent’s house I saw a centipede on the wall. I. Freaked. Out and my brother was home for lunch and was laughing at me while I got the extra long hose on the vaccum to suck up the little bas****.

We had a giant spider on the curtains at our old apartment. FI and I fought over who had to kill it, and he won (or lost? lol). I was standing on the bed and he swept it away, where it disappeared. I started looking around and it was ON THE BED CRAWLING TOWARD ME! AHhhfhgashgdajghsdakjshg
In that same apartment, one of our cats was staring at the wall next to our patio door. We wondered what he was looking at so intently, and then we saw this HUGE spider on the wall! We started arguing over who had to take care of it, but our kitty reached up and chomped it down. Yuccccccck.

@Quietserenity: Centipedes are quite disgusting and FAST! We get them in our apartment at times. I’m learning to use my hand held vacuum to suck those critters up.
I happened to look up while laying in bed today and saw that there was a spider right above where I was. I jumped up so quick and sucked that little thing to flush. Yeah, I’m cool.

@Rouquine: Do you know what DH told me? I used to use the handheld to get spiders, until he said “You know that doesn’t kill them. They just crawl back out, and then they’re pissed.”
Way to take away my ONE coping skill.

OMG!!! AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Now I have the creepy crawlies!!! OH how gross!!! EEEEWWWWW!!
House centipedes are nothing compared to spiders. We had an infestation of all manner of univited living creatures in our last apartment: mice, spiders, centipedes, cockroaches, etc. Now we’ve moved to a nice new place across town and it’s rodent and bug free!

@Quietserenity: That’s why I empty it before I use it and then flush them in the toilet. Muahahaha!

My cat once chased a cockroach into my bed…and I knew it was there and was freaking out looking for it…and it was in the crook of my elbow. asfjklsdjtgio;seryhtiosbjhdklfgbdflkgh. I couldn’t wait* till the lease to that place was up!!!
*Okay, I did wait, but it was such a gross apartment. Thank god I only spent one year there before moving to my cockroach free apartment! Hurray!

I spent four months living in a gross basement apartment where my bathroom was in the unfinished part of the basement. I had lots of run-ins with spiders, centipedes and earwigs but the worst were two separate occasions when I got out of the shower and as I pulled my towel off the rack and shook it before drying off, a spider came out and went flying across the room. Ugh I shudder just thinking about it.
Now I have cats and they eat all the spiders and bugs for me 🙂

Oh, I’m so sorry! I’m not afraid of spiders, but still…to have one crawling on my arm out of nowhere would definitely still freak me out. Just a few days ago I was walking in the hall and out of NOWHERE a spider began to fall (on a string of web) from the ceiling until it was almost touching my face…I walked away quickly!
