# 12 I am pretty sure it is more of a "This is supposed to be a funny comment; don't take it seriously" then "I am trying to comfort you OP so take it as seriously as possible" comment.

They are disease-carrying, blood-sucking cockroaches with pretty wings. Your "fear" is reasonable caution and everyone is living in blissful ignorance of the death and destruction that butterflies cause.

You know, minus all the pretty wings, butterflies (or should I say the wormy part of the butterfly) are quite scary-looking.

Google it if you don't know what I'm talking about.

You're not the only one OP, my boyfriend has a phobia for them - all because of some SpongeBob episode, he claims.

Be prepared for some portion of non-understanding and teasing from almost everyone you know.

Almost everyone I know does that. My family always tells me that it's just a harmless butterfly, when I run away from them like they're going to murder me. Lol Like yesturday (spelling?) me and my grandpa were outside and they were flying around, and one came within like 5 feet of me and I had to force myself not to run screaming. He looked at me like I lost my mind.

I have to admit that I also have a hard time to be respectful towards his phobia('s). Every time he runs away, screaming like a child, in agonizing fear of a butterfly or even a ladybug, I feel so ashamed. I even became totally mad when he jumped on me in the car (luckily in the passenger's seats) because he thought he saw a spider. And sometimes I give pretty mean remarks too. But yeah, it is hard to understand a phobia if you don't experience it.
