So you're fine with having to cope with it? The OP gave me the impression it made every day hell. Well eitherway meds could maybe make it easier to deal with, but I definitely approve of staying clean where possible. I suppose I'm kind of a hypocrite suggesting meds when I don't take any for my arthritis, but that's because I firgured out symptoms only occur when I'm stressed.

I'm not "fine" with having to cope with it. It is everyday hell, but I can live with it, I haven't lost control of my life yet. It's a bit hard to explain and maybe medications would really help with it, but I'm not the biggest meds fan.

Anywho, got any interesting life stories for us? I'm curious as to how you react upon seeing a spider hehe.

I don't think I have any funny spider-related stories, they're just kinda unusual hahahah

We had a ping-pong table in our garage, and I was playing one day with my sister. Then, suddenly, she said "Lucca, there's something behind you". I looked to see what it was, and it was a fucking huge armed spider 10 centimetres away from my feet. I ran directly into the car as fast as I could (since the spider was right in front of the door) and screamed for help.

I remember one day, when me and my family were watching the Brazilian Carnival, and a giant spider appeared from behind the TV and went directly to the door, locking us all inside the room. I don't know what happened, I just know I passed out, and when I woke up the door was open and there were no more spiders.

Those were the two worst situations, but it's not rare in the summer for me to see smaller spiders inside my house. I generally get scared, ask someone to kill it and shake a lot. And then my day's ruined.

In that case you could always just try it and see. If after a while it does more harm then good simply drop it. I wont talk about meds anymore though, you've obviously thought of all that already.

Dang, even passing out! Do you have a plan for if/when you're living on your own? While not to the same extent, I share a fear of bugs aswell, they're just annoying and disgusting! Even so I'm usually able to kill them. I worry what could happen in your case though. A spider appearing making you pass out at an inopportune time with no one around could be dangeous! D:

Other than living on a high floor, a lot of cleaning and insecticide. Or just calling someone if one too scary appears. I hope I won't pass out, it only happened once and it happened because of a variety of factors other than the spider.

Maybe you need to get rid of your arachnophobia too. The fewer factors to make you pass out the better. *gives you big virtual hug* ^^
