I like insects, arachnids, anthropoids and similar creatures but the scare the living shit out of me when I am near them. I wish I could have an isopod farm for myself and be able to grab insects and jumping spiders with my hands but they frighten me, even the shitty house flies make me sick.
I know this is common, most people hate insects but why me? I love animals and I am interested in them, normies just don't want anything to do with them. What sucks is that I actually grew up in a semi-rural area where there were a ton of insects, I'm not just another city butthole.
The ones I will never conquer no matter what are roaches, they are fricking disgusting and I personally had an awful experience when I lived in Texas, a colony lived near my bed, they would always come crawling by me.
Have any of you been able to conquer this fear?
