OK OK OK... it’s a spider... it can’t do me any damage, it’s just an isty-bitsy
But it’s a big disgustingly fat horrible hairy b*stid of a spider in the garage above the washing machine and dryer
And it’s giving me major heeby-jeebies
In fact, it’s kinda getting bigger each time I see it
Now I thought I had dealt with it a while back... it was there in a huge web " and when I couldn’t see it I sprayed some Raid up high " and I haven’t seen it for weeks. It’s back... it’s bigger. It makes me feel sick.
I’ve been really good with this of late, I’ve managed to get two out of my house without totally losing the plot, calmly and fairly rationally, and one that I got really angry at on a particularly bad nite and ended up... well, it went in to the after life (first time I have ever done that!)
I can’t get this one out. I keep going and checking where it is.... which I know is really daft. Even if someone got rid of it for me... well, they are starting to come in the house now and I gotta get a grip on this fear.
Advice please, how to keep this stupid irrational fear at bay.
I've don't want to get like this in front of the little fella.
(I know... it’s just a spider.... but, ack ack ack... it’s really getting to me!)
( I was a true arachnophobe...fainting, the lot - but I managed to sort that... then started getting worse again and did the hypnotherapy thing a few years back.... - I didn’t think it worked... but it must of, or something changed)
Oh .... this sounds so ridiculous.
