By: stillgrieving Written on December 10th, 2009 “My husband was killed in a fall from height work accident 3yrs ago and now I can’t even bring myself to stand on a chair. I have turned into a scared little rabbit over heights and because of this now I either put up with a blown light bulb or have to make myself ask a friend to do it for me.” Scared To Death Of Heights By: deleted Written on July 24th, 2012 “Even stilettos make me nervous.” You Won’t Get Me Up There By: gelroller Written on July 30th, 2012 “I have always had this fear as far back as I
can remember if I climb a ladder for instance I know immediately if I have gone to high because I just freeze and find that I can not move at all. And then if I make the mistake of looking down that’s it the dizziness start’s. So I try my best at all costs to keep away from high places because the last time I got stuck the fire service had to get me down and that was very embarrassing.” http://www.learningmethods.com/heights.htm “She began to walk toward the edge, one step after the other. Quite soon she said she felt a little sick. David asked her to stop walking right away. He asked her what exactly she was feeling (she said a tightening fear) and where precisely she was feeling it (in her chest and gut). He then asked her if this was what she normally felt in these situations. She thought for a moment and then said, yes it was, but normally she just ignored it and kept going because it was her ‘fear of heights’ feeling and she felt that she shouldn’t be feeling this and didn’t want to be feeling this.”
