Our expert says:
Nobody (musually ) actually likes cockroaches, and they are nasty creatures. Depending on the degree o dislike, one could indeed have a phobia for cockroaches. And the sort of reaction you describe does indeed sound excessive and posibly phobic. Indeed, you provide an excellent textbook description of a phobia. See a good local shrink who can asess you and provide CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) which can rid you of this phobia. It won't mean that you'll come to like the critters, but you will be able to deal with them calmly ( and a can of DOOM ) rather than be so unpleasantly affected by such encounters
