Oh gods, you two!   eeek  I've had to have a lie down now, I went all woozy and whizzy!  I never used to have a problem with heights but I most certainly do now.  flaming_nora

I'll try that again!

I'm with you TA. I'm terrified of heights & feel very sick even if I watch someone on a high roof. 

The soles of my feet go like jelly & I have to close my eyes to stop from fainting. I can't even watch films or TV programmes where they have that kind of shot, I start hyperventilating.   [Image Can Not Be Found]

SNAP!  Someone sent me pictures of a narrow high trail in the Himalayas when I was at the office, I had to rush to the loo to throw up.  It's a ridiculous way to be but we can't help it.

I'll try that again!

Must admit I don't like heights but will climb a ladder if I have to, I don't go woozy just consider it common sense really - my excuse and I am sticking to it.

I don't like cities and now feel overwhelmed in a big supermarket, I am too used to my little ones. It is not that I panic or anything, I just don't like it full stop. Give me the peace and quiet of the rural life anyday. I live in the village and have neighbours all around but on the whole they are fairly quiet. cheers

I hate heights, but can tolerate them much more now. When my children were young we had a couple of holidays in Wales and visited castles, and they wanted to climb on the castle walls. At least one parent had to go with them, and since their dad tended to get lost in reading all the informative plaques and displays and lose track of them eeek  I realised I needed to be able to do it. Paying attention to them and avoiding hazards made it do-able, and I now can do it on my own account, at least on a good day, not too close to the edge.
