Hi Christine

Thanks for the first post of this Group! I have no phobias that I can think of (in the real sense of the word) but funnily enough, I have seen roaches before (in an apartment I lived in) and they grossed me out so much I could no longer eat there and ultimately moved. My physical reactions were nausea and my skin got goosebumps all over. So I understand somewhat how ohiohunny feels although it wasn't a crippling phobia like some people suffer from.

I'd like to hear from others who have phobias or live with someone who has.

Here's a little more information about phobias: http://www.empowher.com/mental-health/content/feeling-afraid-no-apparent-reason-phobias

It seems as tho I'm probably gonna b the only 1 I ever b with this fear but maybe someone else might have something similar. I have an extreme phobia/ ocd of roach germs I see shadow n feel them dropping on me,its hard to go in a store cause I'm scared I might c a piece of a roach or a live or dead one if I was to encounter this I would have to throw all my cloths shoes away after not getting into my car any walking home so I don't mess up my car! It's the worst bug case trust me is there any cure?
