Why oh why do I still freak out when i see a spider. They’re tiny, and lets face it, I’m not. At 37 years old I’m still scared of these things. it’s utterly pathetic. These 2 I stumbled upon recently. One was in the play ground my daughter was enjoying, the other on a wall in my house. I freaked like a pathetic fool at the sight of both. Anyone know how to overcome such a stupid phobia as I’m sick of it now. I can understand totally where Giger got his inspiration for the face hugger in Alien. Those spider legs and quick movement play quite sweetly into a common human phobia.
