I am scared of heights and deep water too. when I am at great height just cant see downwards. it causes shivers in me, I have a thought that i am falling from such a height. even deep thick water frightened me. I wonder how deadly is the deep water.

i'm afraid of heights too, i'm afraid of venous insects, aracnids, fishes and many kinds of animals, not those that we can find at home, but its normal i think... when i was a kid, i was afraid of the dark (hahahaha), i'm afraid to live me life and in the end, believe that i wasn't important, those kind of things

Actually, I'm not a coward person. but after I've got a motorcycle accident and suffer from it. I became a coward person. I was afraid if I have to ride vehicle with high speed. I think I was traumatized by the speed of vehicles. I wish I do not have a prolonged trauma.

I'm afraid of some enclosed spaces. I found this out one day when I went caving with my geology class. Got half way into the cave and started having a panic attack. The professor escorted me out while the rest of the class went on with another person. I found myself an open area by a river and stayed there till it was time to leave. I've somewhat overcame the fear. I've went through crawl spaces and all while working but I still get that uneasy feeling.
