I Am Katsaridaphobia!

I have a confession to make as regards my fears.  Among fear of heights, I am Katsaridaphobia (fear of cockroaches) and am also a wee bit entomophobia, i.e. fear of insects with flappy wings! I fear roaches so much that I would have bad dreams about it every now and then. Yes even at this old age! Recently, I found out that my eldest daughter does NOT have this phobia and YAY, I am mega relieved!!  And happy!  Coz my soon-to-be 9YO daughter will be able to save me from the mental torment of facing  those ugly and stinky creatures that invade my peace and privacy everyday.  Though I keep my house clean, yet these ugly pests find it a pleasure to pay it a visit everyday… and at the places that I least expect them to be like on our dining table or the tray that we place our toothbrushes (the monster’s favorite hideout somemore, eeeeweeee!!!).

Just this morning, Alycia saved the horrified situation by using just a few pieces of toilet paper to catch that bronze creepy creature creeping on our toothbrushes (EEEWE and FREAKS!!!) with her hand and swiftly flushing it down the toilet.  Once done, I was uber proud of my baby and gave her a pat on her shoulders and said “good job Alycia!” while breaking out in a silly yet relieved laughter, LOL!!

I read that one of the ways to overcome the phobia of cockroaches is by exposing oneself to it!! I don’t think I can do it. For someone who is mentally strong (for those of you who read my blogs, you’ll know what I had gone through with Cassandra), I have to succumb to those ugly, stinky creatures and run to grab the can of bug spray while screaming the moment I see the most feared pest!

Anyone here has a phobia of roaches too?
