my name is rachel and i'm 14, i have a really intense fear of spiders.
when i see one i get breathless, i cry, tremble, almost feel like im going to puke and almost pass out. im not one of those silly girls scream at every bug, when i see a spider i feel like i'm going to die.
At school its embarassing if theres a spider and i scream my lungs out and i feel weak and i have tried to stop my fear and sites told me to start by looking at pictures and i almost puke at the sight. A spider fell into my bed once and i got my mother to get the sheets and wash them and look in my room for it but i still wouldnt sleep in my bed for a week! People dont understand what its like, i know it wont hurt me but i cant help it i just cant go near it!
if one who knows what its like and has cured themselves please help me!
