What is the impact of arachnophobia?

Arachnophobia is one of the most common phobias. People who have this phobia are often aware that their thoughts towards spiders are irrational or unlikely to occur. Despite this, they cannot avoid their reaction of anxiety and fear when they see an arachnid.

The most common thoughts are usually:

  • Spiders are fast and unpredictable so I won't be able to avoid it and it will crawl on my body or jump on me.
  • Spiders are aggressive and poisonous, if one reaches me it will bite me and I can be injured or killed.
  • It will crawl onto my nose/eyes/ears or even enter my ear and get stuck or leave eggs under my skin.

People with arachnophobia continually avoid spiders, sometimes so much that they can forget about the impact that fear of spiders has on their lives. They often avoid basements, attics, garages, gardens, and places where they have previously seen a spider.

They also tend to repeatedly check for spiders in their room or even in their car and do not often go camping or walking in rural areas or forests.

Don't let your spider phobia run your life. If that's your case, I highly recommend that you seek the help of a psychologist. We only live one life, don't waste it.
