@peachacid: I found one of these evil monsters in my house a few months ago and it’s freaked me out so bad I started crying and called my mom. Seriously, I’m a grown ass woman and I called my mom (SO was playing in a golf tournament at the time and I wasn’t about to disturb that ritual). The thing was legit 3 1/2 inches long and it was crawling across my wall. I googled it to find out what it was, and found out it was a “house centipede” which is, in my opinion, a very uncreative way of saying “huge nasty bug that needs to get the hell out of my house.” Also found out from google that they are particularly prominent in the Midwest, so enjoy that fear, fellow Midwestern bees.
Ever since then, they have been my biggest fear and I actually have nightmares about them, which is a ridiculous overreaction, but I can’t help it.
Other than that, worms and slugs and anything else similar grosses me right the hell out. Weirdly, though, snakes don’t bother me at all, and I used to have a pet snake!
ETA: I just remembered another one. When I was little I used to have this recurring dream that I was being chased by a dachshund. I’ve absolutely HATED them ever since.

I don’t like bugs in general but spiders especially freak me out. On more than one occasion I have almost caused car accidents. Once when I fell asleep and woke up with a spider near my face, I screamed bloody murder and my parents pulled over very quickly thinking something was wrong. I still blame my mom on that one, bringing a nasty plant into the car! The other time was with my Darling Husband, he was not pleased my screams were caused by a spider.

@peachacid: THESE are my WORST NIGHTMARE, and they run so fast. Ah, they freak me out everytime. Ish. One time I had to kill one – took me 5 minutes to contemplate how I was going to kill it and what to do if it started to run. Scary!!!!
