What ever you do, when/if you want to pet or hold a rodent, dont hold one that is known to bite. You dont want to be scarred for life, LOL!
But yeah, as everyone else said, just having them around and looking at them and getting used to them really helps.
Ive never had a phobia of any animal (except for large, flying, buzzing bugs...), but if something creeps me out a little, Ive found that once I handle it and spend some time with it, its not half as bad as I thought it would be. Once you realize that the animal you are scared of is a little living being with a personality, feelings, ect you start to appreciate and understand them a little better, IMO.
Exactly what is it about rodents that freaks you out?

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
