Phobias

  1. I used to avoid the notion that I had phobias but lately I just cant , I have come to the realization that I have two pretty significant phobias, and I cant relate a single bad experience to either of them to prompt these phobias
    the first and most serious is my mouse phobia
    I am terrified of mice, the scurrying behaviour is part of it but I cant explain it, people have mice as pets and I get heart palpitations at seeing mice even on tv.....
    I worked at a restaurant in highschool and we had to bring the stock down to the basement afterwards and where the trucks picked up the garbage there were TONS of mice, And truth be told that I damn near passed out once when a mouse scurried by my foot down there........
    the second and least serious of my two phobias is spiders..... If i see them outside thats fine, but if there is one that gets in the apartment or whatever I FREAK, to the point where I cannot bring myself to kill it, I've tried to hit them with a fly swatter and I just cant bring myself to do it, the last time I saw one crawling on counter I drowned it with windex and then picked it up and threw it out after I had killed it already
    this sounds so stupid and bizarre but the feelings that come over me are really terrible
    specially the whole mouse thing....
    some people say there must be something that has made me so terrified but I've asked my mom and she cant seem to think of anything
    so yes I'm a fraidy cat but I reallllllly wanna get past these annoyingly silly phobias!!!!!!

    I'm afraid of snakes, all snakes in this wide world.
    But not one eye snake ..nahhhhhh.

    Wendy, try look for a book and read about them. Stare at their pictures in the book or photos. This will make way for you that even though they're creepy and ugly , they can be cute too.

    I used to have a pet spider named Wendy and am not kidding............hehhehehe.

    Deathly afraid of heights and confined spaces. I can hardly stand on a chair to change a lightbulb.
    When I wa in junior hight, my parents were renovating the house and talked me into crawling into the crawl space under the house to pull out some old insulation. I got about 10 feet into the 4 ft high space and FREAKED OUT! You'll never be able to talk me into doing that again.

    Jayne:

    I'm tempted to start a thread titled:

    ". . . And what do you call your 'one-eyed monster'?" I'm sure there's some interesting names out there. . . .

    . . . . or do you want to start that thread???

    Be my guest! . . .

    You're cool, Jayne!

    I love snakes (and own several of the non-trouser variety).
    Mice are snake food.
    Spiders are nasty and ALL MUST DIE!!!

    I am 5'3 (and 3/4) I don't like to look down...
    I have VERTIGO really really bad.

    Spiders are our friends. If you live on the North American continent you are never more than 4 feet from a spider. I am afraid of roaches...yucky bug!!

    Am not afraid of Roaches, but hates them ......yuck roach!

    One question I want to ask god is . Why did you create Cockroaches god. They didn't do anything good but drives me mad.
