It’s funny sometimes, how things seem to converge and head in the same direction. A day or so ago I made the decision that I want to cure 100 phobias by Christmas; the very next day there was an article in a national newspaper stating how the spider population has exploded this year and with the winter on its way many of them will be coming indoors. For me this isn’t an issue, but for many people it is. A major issue. It really reflected what I had learned this week, which is if you talk to people about phobias you find that almost everyone either has one or knows someone who has one.
