I feel your pain

I just had a "palmetto bug" crawl on me the other day. I am still having problems with that. Ironically, I'm a therapist and work with patients who have post-traumatic-stress syndrome.
I'm from Alabama, and they are bad there, too. I love the South, especially Florida, but this is definitely my biggest struggle here. I have gone to a therapist about my phobia when I was in college, so I understand your issue.

It is something I constantly struggle with. I have no problems with spiders or snakes. I am constantly looking around and checking corners, etc. I have had a few false alarms, which makes me even more paranoid.

You are not alone. And Raid is your friend.
