Avoid Phobia Towards Pests


This is the story of how I developed Katsaridaphobia as a child. This condition, also known as the fear of cockroaches, can be very dysfunctional among people of all ages. Most people know about the term phobia. But only a few know how it can really affect a person. Phobia is an excessive and irrational fear that causes panic attacks, physical pain and other symptoms of fear. It inhibits a person from living a normal life, given his inability to function properly especially when there is a presumed threat. A phobia can cause a person to do wild and unimaginable things to avoid his weakness. We must avoid the occurrence of this disorder among our children.

Katsaridaphobia - The Fear Of Cockroaches

When I was a young girl, I was fond of joining dance competitions and parades until high school in Cornelius, North Carolina. The moment I developed Katsaridaphobia changed my life and my passion for good. So, I was about to left home early to go to town because I joined a street dance parade and it was time to perform. I was already late so I prepared as fast as I could, put on my shoes and ran off to catch the next bus.

During the performance, I felt something on the sole of my feet. It was pretty itchy and irritating. It was difficult for me to concentrate on my moves. I thought that it was just some bug that got stuck on my shoe. Minutes later, the irritating feeling moved up to my legs and then my stomach. I felt it crawl all over my body for the whole duration of the parade. No matter what, I never broke character, and kept dancing steadily up my feet. But when we reached the finish point, I went crazy and took my costume out. I was screaming frantically, removing every sensation of the cockroach crawling all over my body. 

Since then, I had nightmares about cockroaches and I never looked or touched a cockroach again. For months, I was unable to function even though we contacted local pest expert in Cornelius, NC to remove every trace of this pesky pest.  At times, I did not want to go to the kitchen or dining room where I know cockroaches infested. I also did not want to go into my room without getting my dad to check every space for any sign of cockroaches. Luckily, my mom took me to a psychologist who was able to help me get through my trauma by using therapy.
