I've just moved house and my anxiety has returned focusing on the lean to dividing the house and garden. First day we moved in I started worrying about spiders in there I was obsessively looking. I found one in there and keep looking at it and worrying about it. Gone out there again and there is another closer to our back door. I stood and watched it walk around and although I didn't like it I was ok. However I am now thinking I can't cope and we will have to move. This has invaded my thoughts since we moved. We have moved to a completely different part of the area and I don't know anyone. My dp and best friend are saying this is irrational but I don't know what to do. I feel better when I check it but worse after ten minutes and want to look at it again. I tell myself I'll walk past without looking up but I can't.

Probably worth mentioning I have actually held a tarantula in the past and felt great after but these look different somehow and I can't put them in a box!
