Hallucination or real?

I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth when I saw an absolutely massive spider. I immediately backed out of the bathroom to get the bug spray, and it didn't take long for me to get it, but when I got back I couldn't find the spider. The absolutely massive spider. A spider that big can't hide easily. It's body wasn't huge, but it's legs made it bigger than a baseball. Small (baby) plate sized. I've never seen a spider that big in person, but now that I can't find it I wonder if it was a hallucination. I've seen spiders that were't there before. Admittedly never that big, never whitish, and I was usually half asleep, but I have seen spiders that weren't actually there before. Do you think it was real or just in my head? Regardless, I'm glad that bathroom is a death field for insects. It's filled with bug poison. If the spider's real, it's going to die. :\

    Hard to say, usually those sorts are quick to vanish. Where I lived, spiders near as big as my hand were common, look up huntsman or fishing spiders.

    Harmless though, I don't kill them. They eat the huge cockroaches I had around.

    A male huntsman lived in my room a couple months, I named him Zeus.

    Never bothered anyone, just appears on the wall in evenings.

    Don't forget that spiders can walk on the underside of objects, upside down. It could have been on the underside of the sink.

    It's surprising how quickly spiders can move and hide when they know you're getting the spray.

    What kind of bug poison?  Some bug poisons can accumulate slowly in a person's body and cause cancer many years later.  I suggest that you back off on the poisons.

    • Some kind of long lasting spray. You're supposed to reapply it maybe once a month. Generally you spray corners and such that the bugs would like. You can use it outside, too.
