I am terrified of roaches. I mean not just your ordinary grossed out, but I will have a panic attack and start crying if I even think of one, much less see one. I will flip out if one is even in the vicinity of me.
We are moving into our new home today and my husband thought it would be funny to tell me that the new house house roaches. I don’t know if he was just saying that to make me anxious or if there really is a problem. Either way, an exterminator will be there this afternoon.
What are your irrational fears??!!

Tall buildings, but only if they are old- specific, I know, but hey, it’s irrational 🙂

That’s really mean!
I lived in an apartment for awhile. It was great for the first little bit, then the management changed. The new managers did not spray, or screen their tenants. The roaches got so bad for a little bit that I actually SET MY TENT UP IN MY APARTMENT AND SLEPT ON AN AIR MATTRESS INSIDE.
I finally put my foot down and told them that if they didn’t ACTUALLY get someone out to spray, instead of just saying they would, I was going to get an attorney and find a way to get out of my lease.
So I don’t think you’re being irrational at all. Cockroaches are disgusting, especially when you are a clean person and they’re not yours.

Roaches aren’t an irrational fear in my book! they are just nasty!!! I moved to florida this year and currently i’m freaked out about the roaches that live outside. I totally never believed that they lived outside, my SIL told me to keep and eye open…. well I saw one and it chased me, that thing ran after me and it was HUGE. Yeah had the exterminator come to spray our yard.
The fear I have now is this thing, I’m attaching a picture. This is the FIRST one of these that was in our house ….. the other one was killed too.

@Sunfire: I’m so sorry …. Think happy thoughts. I hadn’t looked at that picture for a few months, I’ve forgotten how nasty it was.

Ughhhhh I hate spiders and centipedes so much. I literally shiver for days after finding one in the house. However, I don’t think that’s irrational. They are SO GROSS haha.

@HisIrishPrincess: OMG that WOULD terrify me too!!
And yes, they dooo live outside and it’s NASTY! Ugh, I know they have to live somewhere but I just wish they didn’t live near me!
@EffieTrinket: I can’t believe they let it get that bad! I would NEVER be able to stay there.
@Sunfire: Spiders don’t bother me so much…mostly because they eat most of the bugs that scare me. lol But I totally understand that fear.

@HisIrishPrincess: I, too, will be having nightmares tonight! Ahh!!! We had one similar to that one you posted (but all black) in our basement earlier this summer. My husband killed it with a shovel, but I was only like 15 feet away from him when he spotted it and then killed it. I felt faint and I’m surprised I didn’t faint. I hate spiders!!!!
My biggest fear isn’t spiders. It is snakes. ANy kind, color, size…I hate snakes!!!!
