Is anyone else this scared of spiders?

I am terrified of spiders. Doesn't matter how big or small, if I see one it creeps me out, if it's too close I scream. I have to leave the room if I see one. I can't stand pictures, videos, even books about spiders creep me out. Even songs scare me, worst of all the Itsy Bitsy Spider. That song scares me and I can't ever handle it.

  • I think you have what's called "Arachnophobia" (the fear of spiders).

    I almost act the same when I see lizards and sometimes snakes.

    But most of the time they are the lizards.

    I can't tolerate seeing their pictures or even a drawing of them.

    Sometimes I cry if I see a lizards some meters away from me.

    Once I saw a lizard in front of me in the street and I screamed and my eyes got teary..

    And this happened in the university too. I know it's really embarrassing. -_-"

    I think I have Herpetophobia.

    Spiders really don't scare me as lizards do.

    • ? Are lizards poisonous where you live? I like reptiles...but you do have some dangerous snakes...do you have that obnoxious saw-scaled viper where you live? I like most snakes...but that is one I think I would probably shoot on sight...o.O

    • probably so

    • I am confused as to what you think is dangerous (your comment on my answer) but saw-scaled vipers are possibly the leading killers of human from snakebite...we do not have them in the Americas...(:(:(:

  • Okay...yeah I'm not that bad. I'm still terrified of them though. It doesn't help that both of my brothers are too scared of them to kill them for me. Wasps are wayyy scarier in my opinion.

    • Eh..cars do not bother me...but I FINALLY caught one a few weeks ago downstairs here.. and put it outside...where it will no doubt die since it is now freezing here...but he/she tried hard to get away from me and then finally hunkered all the way down..was very difficult to pin it down and then get underneath it...without harming it...only to put it outside where it will most likely die anyway...eh...I felt better for not killing it...but was way more trouble than it was worth...o.O

  • I wonder why people are programmed to be afraid of spiders. I think it's those hairy little legs.
