Okay, Chelsea, what scares you?

I’ve made a decision. It should henceforth be illegal to post a picture of a spider on Facebook or twitter. Yes, this includes “cute” spiders, large spiders, spiders that have cool coloring, spiders from movies and anything dressed in a spider costume. And anything that remotely resembles a spider should be banned. BANNED, I TELL YOU.
I have no idea where my hatred/fear of spiders came from. When I was younger, Charlotte’s Web was my favorite movie. I used to catch spiders and keep them in jars as “pets.” I also did the same thing with grasshoppers, salamanders and snakes. My mother was so pleased. And then one day I was terrified of the crawly buggers. I nearly had a panic attack at a nature center because there was a tarantula in a tank across the room. I freak the hell out whenever I watch Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I would NEVER follow those damn spiders. No matter what.
Spiders aren’t bad creatures. They kill bugs, they make beautiful webs and they pretty much mind their own business. But I loathe them. LOATHE. I don’t like the way they crawl, I don’t like their hairy legs. God, I’m having heart palpitations just typing this.
I would love to get over my fear of spiders, but that would probably require immersion therapy. You know, where you expose yourself to the thing you fear until you’re not afraid of it. Hell to the no. I am perfectly fine being scared out of my mind for the rest of my life. Fear lets you know you’re alive.
So please, I beg you, if you know or love someone who’s arachnophobic, think before you post that picture of the gigantic spider you found in the drain this morning. Please.

I must confess that in searching online for a spider picture for the end of this post, I think I've caught Chelsea's fear of spiders...gross...
