OP, I feel for you. I have a super phobia of just about all insects – iNCLUDING butterflies. i run away from those suckers as fast as possible!

I’m terrified of cicadas and don’t know what to do with myself. Fiance thought he was being cute and bought me a giant fly swatter. Just last week, I saw a creepy crawly on the couch (like 6 inches away from me!) and I nearly died. I have not sat on the couch all week long (it ran away before i could kill it). Now I totally know the chances of it still being there are slim to none. Annnnd considering my apartment is super tiny, it’s probably moved to another room or it’s out of the apartment. However, logic does not apply to this situation and I have been using a chair from the kitchen to sit and watch tv or I’ve been going to the bedroom to do work. It’ll take a few weeks for me to get over it and use the couch again. Did I mention that I am a school psychologist?- with extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy. Yeah. totally doesn’t matter!
