    Worms give me the creeps, and spiders.

    Am always trying to get a grip of my fear of spiders. When I had my daughter I was determined to not pass this problem on to her and I did really well, even sitting with her while she would have spiders crawling up her arm in the garden or if she walked through a web,turning to me with a spider on her head I'd manage to remain calm, go me I thought..until I was stood cooking one day when she was about 3years old and I felt a tickle on my neck, scratched it but it remained, so I pulled the polo neck out to get a better scratch at skin, stupidly looked down and there was a huge spider right there,inside the polo neck!! Sadly that's when I lost it, every piece of clothing came off quicker than a blink all the while turning the air blue with a stream of swear words and yes all in front of my daughter... Hmmm... Ahwell, 10years on and I can remove a spider with a glass and paper, if I have to, and my daughter runs away, best laid plans and all that eh!:rolleyes:

    I am ok with spiders but I did get bitten by one once. I had scooped it up in my hands, to throw it outside, and the ungrateful **** bit me! It was quite a sharp pain but it didn't last.

    Add one here to the spider list. I've also had a bite from one as I pulled grass for a horse. Thumb tingled for 24 hours afterwards. I do try to put them out with a glass and a card- but if they're really gross have to use a cup so as not to make eye-contact on the way to the garden. :eek: What if I fainted and woke up to find it sitting on my chest staring...?

    rabbits :rolleyes:

    It's not so much that they scare me, i think they look cute. But i could never handle one. We had a white, pink-eyed rabbit when i was little and it was evil! lol. I remember it being out running around the garden, i wasn't aware. I bent down to tie my laces and the little s@&! bit the underneath of my thigh! For no reason, scared of them ever since haha
