My Itsy Bitsy spider phobia - sweetladybug92 - 10-05-2018 08:59 AM

Ever since I was little I have been terrified of spiders. They are just so creepy looking with their 8 legs and creepy eyes. I hate how fast they move.
I'm not sure where the fear started, though I have vague memories of seeing a scene from a movie, which I later learned was the ending to the original The Fly, and it scared the hell out of me. I think I must have been about 3.

Now I can't stand seeing one, pictures or video scare me. Even like a toy spider or a cartoon spider is creepy. It's so bad that even the children's song the Itsy Bitsy Spider scares me. I just keep picturing a spider crawling on me. How do I get over this phobia.
