    Thank y'all for the warm welcome! I will definitely see what the chat room is all about. I was seeing a therapist a few months ago for some panic attacks and anxiety, do professionals have phobia expert in their title?
  2. Hello my name is Dacus and I live in Oklahoma with a fear of cockroaches. I am very new to discussion forums in general, and am excited to be here because I was directed here from google and there are apparently people on here that share my fear. I am not exactly sure when my fear developed. I have always been averse to insects with exoskeletons, but I could deal with most of them (June bugs, beetles, locusts, ect). The cockroach has always been a different story.. I think the first incident was when I was 7 years old or so.. Going to the bathroom in my moms office.. Minding my own business when I look over and crawling up the urinal next to me (on my right) was a disgusting 2inch roach and a dead one on its back to my left.. Now I wasn't necessarily in a position to run away which is my first instinct, so in this instance what I do is I curl my toes up in my shoe and stand on them until I can get out (not sure why, it's just what happens). And now being 23 I don't use that bathroom unless someone checks it out before I go in. There have been other instances too but I don't want my first post to be so lengthy that no one reads it. I realize that cockroaches are way smaller and cannot conceivably hurt me ( I am a 6 foot 204 pound male) but there is just something about those little disease carrying, nuclear bomb surviving creatures that scares the hell out of me. I am very open about my fear and not above asking ANYBODY for help regarding instances involving roaches.. I'm not sure how to end posts, so I will just say thanks for reading! Dacus
