I'm afraid of spiders, worms and frogs

by Veronica

My phobia of frogs probably developed when I was a child, I remember that I was walking near a swamp and suddenly I noticed a huge frog, the sixe of both my palms in front of me. Needless to say I freaked out and now, when I'm 17, even little toads frighten me.
I haver no idea how I developed my arachnophobia. My mom told me that I used to smash spiders dead with my bare hands when I was around 2-3 years old and I was laughing. When I was 5 years old, I totally started to freak out even seeing one. The phobia is so bad, that I can't even approach to kill a spider if I see one and I freeze in terror and start breathing really fast. I think if one would touch me I would get a full panic attack.
When it comes to worms, I have pretty good idea, when I started fearing them. I was forced to touch one as a child when playing outside. That was all it took. But what I find weird is that I'm not afraid of snakes, I even want one as a pet.
