I'm scared to death of spiders. It's a completely irrational fear, this arachnophobia of mine, that leaves me paralyzed in the presence of any arachnid specimen I may find roaming about freely (the ones that are confined don't bother me in the least). Not in a million years would they catch me in these cure trials, though !
P.S. - I completely understand being driven out of one's wits by spiders but this poor woman really totally lost it.
