Packarat Posted November 2, 2014 Share Posted November 2, 2014 Hello, all I'm a shy girl who probably won't post much, but I wanted to register because I acquired a pair of hissers not two weeks ago, and I have some questions which I'll post in some hopefully appropriate section soon. As for myself, the most interesting thing is, I guess, the fact that I used to be pretty severely entomophobic all my life.. like, 'hide in the bathroom and cry until someone gets that june bug out of my room' level entomophobic. So I'm also living proof that phobias can be overcome, and I'm proud to say I did it myself with no help - just subjected myself to some auto-exposure therapy by reading about insects, watching youtube vids and eventually getting my roaches. Now not only am I not repulsed by bugs, I actively want them to crawl over me - too bad my guys are shy and hold on to their root for dear life when I try to pick them up, and I don't want to pull too hard and hurt them. Any advice on how to gently pick up a stubborn hisser? Anyway, I'm glad to be among fellow bug-lovers and hope to learn many interesting new insect facts on the forum.
