I woke up last night at 3:30 am. I was lying on my back. I thought to myself "why am I awake?" then I looked at my chest.

Sitting on me, firghtfully close to my face, was the biggest freaking spider i've ever seen before. It looked like it was the size of a tarantula. And it was staring right at me.

I threw off my covers and ran out of my room stark naked, slamming the door behind me and all the while screaming "oh shit! oh shit! oh shit!"

i'm crazy afraid of spiders and bugs of all kinds. Only when they're in my bedroom, where i have to sleep though. Outside I can deal with them.
A couple weeks ago a bumble bee flew into my bedroom and I accidently stepped on it. I only lightly stepped on it though, and i could feel how fuzzy it was with my foot.


Anyway, for the rest of last night i was too scared to go back into my room, so i slept on the couch in my living room. this morning i checked it out and there was no giant spider. we don't have any spiders in canada any bigger than your average wood spider. that makes me think it was all a hallucination.

but then why am i hallucinating about spiders?

I'm not scared of spiders at all in the day but if I wake up and see one I do jump out of bed, have never come across any really large ones though.

Thing I get spooked out at night by is random noises. My ears are really sensitive and every little creak in the house I pick up on, makes me think someone has broken in all the time.

Chill man, he was just standing guard, keeping the insects away.
I'll take spiders over pesky insects anyday, in this part of the world there aren't any poisionous spiders, and I really hate bug bites.

I occasionally have "Exploding Head Syndrome" (seriously, look it up) and no matter how much I know that no one has broken in, I always have to prowl around and go on patrol for at least an hour before I feel like I can go back to sleep again.

As for that manifesting itself in insect form ... when I was about 10, I woke up to feel a cockroach munching on my scalp. I ran my fingers through my hair, flung the thing across the room, sat up, turned on the light, and saw the tail-end of it scurrying away.

There was very little sleep after that.

When I was in the Army and in the Saudi Desert prior to the start of the Gulf War, I was in my sleeping bag one night and felt something run up on my sleeping bag. I turned my flashlight on and a kangaroo rat was staring right into my face. I told him "Get outta here!", and he scampered away. Cute little guy!

Atleast it wasn't one of those horrible camel spiders. Yikes!

Oh man, I would have freaked the fuck out. I remember one time I was cleaning up the basement, and I flipped over a little blanket thing, and there was a big spider on the other side. I had the biggest spaz attack I had ever had.

You sound like my youngest brother...he lets out girly shrieks and runs off when he sees a spider. I would have loved to see the expression of your face when you came running out of the room yelling "oh shit". :D

I'm not afraid of spiders. I'm not saying I'd want to cuddle one at night, but I'd rather have spiders than stupid flies or mosquitos, since spiders do eat those for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so I'm quite grateful that they help cutting back on the nasty insects-population. Of course I'd prefer a sleeping environment without spiders. If I do find one, I get a cup and some paper, put the cover over the spider, slide the paper between cup and wall and take the whole thing outside, where I release the spider.

A spider's stare is more scary because they have eight eyes glaring at you!:rolleyes:

Chillhouse, it could have been much worse. You could have waken up (or hallucinated) about the spider staring at you and be all wrapped up in the spider's silk!:eek:

In texas, we have these guys hanging around: http://www.badspiderbites.com/images/spider-vickie.jpg

... and other types of Argiopes too. I'm not afraid of spiders, but I understand your reaction. if i woke up and saw an Argiope inches from my face, I'd probably freak out too. No one expects that to be the first thing they see when they wake up in the morning.

I've had something similar when I was little. I woke up, don't know why. When I was awake I heard some buzzing close at hand. I turned my light on and I saw a wasp had landed right close to my head. I am absolutely terrified of wasps and I ran out my room screaming much to the annoyance of my parents. When I went back in my room I couldn't see it anywhere. Whether it flew out or was never there I don't know, but it really frightened me a lot. I think now just something buzzy flew past my head. I woke up, tired, and saw something unclearly. Mistook it as a wasp out of fear.

As for how big it seemed. One thing you do have to remember is the angle you saw it at. You were looking down from your chest and it was closer then you usually see spiders. It could just have looked larger due to the odd perspective and how close it was. Combined with the fact you were frightened of them and you were tired your brain made a sort of illusion. It amplified what was there.

But I wasn't there so it is hard to say.

I hate insects and spiders with a passion. I can deal with snakes and rats and other animals, but not insects. Of course a few weeks ago I had a nightmare that a bunch of bugs were attacking me. I fell out of my bed trying to get away from them, but who knew a good faceplant could snap people back to reality?

The more and more i think about it, the less it seems real. I'm pretty sure it was just halucination. I've hallucinated in bed before. sleep paralysis, anyone? It's happened to me three times.

I have another bug story, it's from a few years ago. I was just sitting at my desk, doing my homework, when I felt something tugging at my sleeve. I look down, and what should I see? But the biggest mother of an earwig I've ever seen. I screamed, shook my whole body to get it off, and ran outside, where I stayed for a good 10 minutes.

I don't know why i'm so scared of bugs. I was never chased by a bug or molested by a fly or bitten by a bee or anything like that.

I like spiders, but then I live in a place where they are quite small and harmless. I usually encourage them to spin their nets in my bookshelf or some such place, so as to avoid vacuuming the poor guys..

Wasps and hornets, however, are a different story. I watched a short clip on Youtube about the giant Asian hornet, and had to check my bedroom TWICE before I dared sleep.. Nevermind zombies, giant hornets are the ultimate nightmare creatures from HELL!

I don't usually get paranoid about people breaking in. However, I have a wildly overactive imagination, so seeing a horrorflick and then spending the night in an empty house? Not a good combination.
I didn't sleep the night after seeing Coraline. Yeah, embarassing I know..

Okay, the spider came back for more a couple of nights ago. I was just laying in bed, waiting to fall asleep. Thanks to my insomnia, I hadm't yet.

The spider, apparently, was waiting for me to fall asleep. when he thought the coast was clear, he ran up my leg frightfully fast. using my cat like reflexes, and out of sheer murderous instinct, i slammed my hand down on it. you see, not only do i hate bugs, i also hate it when bugs crawl on me.

so i smooshed it with my fist, then ground it into my leg for good measure, smeared it in my hands, and threw it to the ground.

needless to say, no spider has dared become my bedfellow since.
