It’s Baaaack

The bug phobia…it’s back.  Last night Hope slept on the living room couch, apparently after comforting herself with a hefty amount of food.

Well, it wasn’t a spider; it was a moth. An apparently small moth. Hope hurriedly got dressed this morning so that she could seal her room back off. It took me all day to realize that it was because of the fear of another moth sighting. I enjoyed her company over breakfast and as I took her to school this morning that I missed the connection that dining room was a bug free zone.

It’s currently looking like Hope might sleep on the couch again. Sigh…I don’t intend to fight it, but I am encouraging her back to her bed with clean sheets, a fly swatter and some non-toxic bug spray.

If she stress binges again tonight she’ll have consumed a good chunk of this week’s groceries.

Sigh…Hoping this gets manageable so that we can skip the hypnotist tune up. That would be just one more thing for us to heavily manage.

    One day my sister was driving and saw a spider in her car so she pulled over and got out. Some teenagers asked if she was ok and she asked them to find and kill the spider. When they couldn’t find anything she called a tow truck and had her car towed home. This probably doesn’t comfort you at all, but just know that Hope is not alone in this crippling fear, lol. My sister has also slept on her couch and in an extreme situation at my house when a bug was in her room.

      Holy eff. I can’t even wrap my head around this…I am a bit more patient than I was before, but ugh…I did get her back in her bed last night. The point of your story for me is that it could be worse.
