‘Biggest spider I’ve ever dealt with by far!’
I had worse than a fear of spiders to be honest. I had full blown arachnophobia. I had nightmares about them most nights, had invasive thoughts during the day, couldn’t use our bath (would only shower instead so I could get out quick if one appeared) and had a breakdown last year where I nearly left home because I genuinely believed we had an infestation (we didn’t)!
Exposure therapy didn’t work and citalopram took the edge off but it wasn’t until Katie helped me that I have finally got to the point of dealing with them!
When I went to get on a zoom call earlier there was a whopper of a spider on the wall. I caught it with my new spider catcher and it sat next to me throughout the meeting until I then released it outside. Biggest spider I’ve ever dealt with by far. If it’d been 6 months ago I would have had to conduct the zoom call elsewhere, would have felt physically sick and become really teary.
Thank you Katie!!
