I just wanted to know if any of you guys developed phobias or fears they NEVER had before until anxiety came in to your life and hit you like a ton of bricks. For instance, I have a gigantic fear of spiders now when I was never ever afraid of them before. I use to make fun of my younger brother and uncle because they are afraid of them and I picked up a spider, would throw it on them and laugh when they screamed like little girls and ran..lol. I know it may seem mean but, I was younger and thought it was funny.
Anyway, after I developed my anxiety disorder, BAM: suddenly this overwhelming fear of spiders. The fear is so bad I throw myself in to panic attacks because I always think a Black Widow, Brown Recluse or a Hobo has bitten me. How about you all?
