Scared of heights

I never thought that I would be scared of heights, but I found out that I am when I was on holiday a few years ago. We were on a day out and we had a look around a tall building. I stupidly looked out the window and I came over all funny. I put this down to being scared of heights.

I'm scared of heights too . I feel a tingling sensation even when I'm watching a video of a person looking down from the top of a building.

@millie02 Yes, a lot of people are acrophobic.They may not realize it until they get to a high place and their legs start to tremble and they feel panicky!

I've been scared of heights forever. ...fear of falling really. But then again...I fear a lot of things.

I suppose it is a fear of falling that makes us so scared.

I think it has to do with being connected to the ground. I don't worry about how high I am when flying, but I do in buildings

@millie02 Mostly, for me, for some destinations you can't beat a good flight!

I don't realize it till I"m up there either. I never go anywhere near edges of cliffs or anything, or I lose my equilibrium. Doesn't seem to bother some people at all..

@millie02 three years ago I moved to my current apartment which is on the sixth floor. I am not scared of heights, in fact I enjoy the view. But a natural reflex kind of a fear is there. And it came to me as a blessing as I used to drink a little at night before but in order to stay safe since I love to stand in my balcony,( and have to go there to fetch dry towels)I totally quit drinking. I did this in order to be walking stable on the sixth floor always., I got de addicted! :-)
