I do get it - I was the same once. It's the result of conditioning, but you can recondition yourself to not be afraid of them.

I know. But I'm not ready to face my fear, I'd rather whack them.

As I said, that's where you're going wrong because you're not feeling that they have a right to live. If you respect them as living creatures which aren't out to get you, you'll lose a lot of that fear.

If anyone knows of a cure I would be happy to hear of it, for me it never gets any better.

Have one run all over you, or creep over the seat in the car whilst you're driving - that'll cure you. Laughing


Cure or kill me, I'd have heart attack! Shocked

You wouldn't. You'd realise that you survived and the spider didn't hurt you. If you're driving in a car and there's one in there with you, you have to make a very fast decision - keep calm or possibly kill yourself or others by losing control of the car. Which would it be?

I've seen someone jump out of moving car they were driving (luckily at low speed in traffic) when a spider ran across them...
they almost ran (outside the car) into on coming traffic. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

And I have heard a friend that drives motorcycles story of swiftly pulling over and throwing away his helmet (then being stuck with no helmet and needed a lift Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes ) because a huntsman ran down his visor, he said he tried to knock it off then realized it was on the inside Razz Razz Razz

Ah, so you would be able to keep calm long enough to slow down and actually park safely? I presume you don't mean you would just hit the brakes right in the middle of a busy road or motorway. If you can keep calm long enough to stop safely, that means you can overcome your fear.

I would hope that you would stay calm long enough to pull over safely. That's another reason to get over the fear - spiders can and do turn up in cars whilst you're driving - it's happened to me a few times.

You have to ask yourself if it's worth getting injured or dying, or running over people, because of a spider. That's why it's good to try to get over it before something like that happens.

I'd like a pair of eyes like that. I'd freak snakes out by hypnotising them.
