Kinda sound like my wife Stephanie. She is sooo scared of spiders. She sleeps on the couch if she see's one in the bedroom. When I get home from work she'll make me do a thorough search for the critter before she will enter the room again. When I first met her I saw her cry over fear of a spider. One was crawling on the ceiling, and she was freaking out. I thought she was joking a bit until it dropped and she thought it landed on her. I could tell she was serious by the intense fear she had boiling in her eyes.
