I am afraid of heights. Tall buildings make me nervous. A relative of mine works in one of those tall buildings in Eastwood, Libis, Quezon City. She works at the 18th floor. Every time I pay her a visit, I would have to use the elevator since the stairs are off limited to visitors. Every time I enter elevators for that matter, i am getting goosebumps all over and get a little bit nervous. There is that constant fear that something bad will happen and me and other passengers will fall all the way down to the bottom. It must have been the movies that "gave" me that fear. I am afraid of ferries wheels too. I can't really enjoy those rides since my eyes are closed all the time with me hugging those metal posts for good measure/posture. I am even afraid of roller coasters, especially those tall, very tall ones. I have seen Final Destination 3 and I don't want something happen to me what happened to them in that movie, especially on that roller coaster. But if do ride them, my eyes are closely shut with my hands tightly gripped to the handles.

My only real fear is of snakes. It's my mom's fault she was scared of them and passed the fear on to me. My grandkids are 4 and 3 and they love snakes.
