Oh yeah, so many people are scared of spiders. To be honest with you, I do not blame them! At one point in time, I was scared of spiders. Of course, to a certain point, I am too. But, I am only scared of certain spiders…like the big ones that pop out of nowhere as you’re sitting on a tuffet eating your curds and whey. I’m also afraid of the poisonous ones, like the black widow and brown recluse, which live in my region. However, I have my favorites that I like – like the wolf spider or the horned spider. How did I get over my phobia? If you call it getting over a phobia – I decided to get a tarantula, so I read all about them and got one. I would look at him, feed him and I actually held him. I see that they aren’t horrible creatures.
