Fear of Millipedes - Flaketheblake - 01-07-2018 04:41 PM

Hello all, newbie here. Both my parents think I’m just acting, and my friends think I’m being ridiculous whenever I bring it up. This fear has been going on since mid-to late elementary school for pretty much no reason I can think of. I’m 18 years old now, and in college, and think this really needs to stop. I can’t even look at a picture of one without getting heart palpitations, sweaty hands, and a sense of momentary panic. I’ve had nightmares about millipedes from time to time, and get slightly similar reactions if I see a centipede or earthworm, though not as extreme. Are there any other millipede-haters our there? Any help would be appreciated.
