@futurepilotswife_:  Ahhhhh!!!  That’s some scary stuff!!!  I’m sure you killed it and it just shrivelled up so small it was hard to see.

OMG OMG OMG BROWN RECLUSE MY WORST NIGHTMARE.

I actually love spiders, except those. They absolutely terrify me because I’ve seen incredibly graphic photos of the results of their bites. Normal spiders I think are generally kind of cute, though I’d rather they stay out of my bedroom/bathroom, I try to put them outside rather than kill them.

My parents sometimes just let them stay because they have a bad bug problem (super old house in the woods) and a few unobtrusive spiders in window corners actually make a difference for the better.

Can you consider moving somewhere colder?

Yes, it is cold and snowy here in Cleveland but that means, almost no spiders! I have seen maybe one big spider in my house in 3 years. A few baby ones, but they don’t bother me much.

I did stop sitting on the couch for nearly 6 months when I saw that big spider there, LOL so I hate them too.

I feel your pain.  I’m convinced that no amount of therapy or hypnosis can help me conquer my fear of spiders (I can’t even kill the itty bitty ones by myself- S.O gets quite a kick out of it.  Then kills it when he realizes how serious I am.)

The two of us want to move to the Southern U.S states because I have really bad fibromyalgia and cold Canadian weather really aggravates my symptoms, but the main thing holding me back is knowing that warmer climates= more spiders year-round.  Just thinking about it gives me the shudders.

I hate spiders!!! Actually all insects but especially spiders! If I see one in the car & i freeze, my car stalls (it’s stick) a complete stranger usually gets it for me if I’m alone. If I’m at home I can’t sleep until Fiance come home and kills it. Believe when I say I feel your pain…

Spiders in cars are terrible! Once my fiancé was driving, I was in the passenger seat, and I see a spider out of the corner of my eye right next to me. Once I realized it was inside, I tried to get away from it, and accidentally switched the car into neutral, hah! Also, I was bit by a brown recluse when I was younger and have a terrible phobia and a scar on my arm as a reminder. So you’re not alone!
