my biggest fear is heights, and then crowds of people.... I managed to get rid of some of my other fears, snakes, darkness, but doesn't matter how I
try, I can't get rid of these two.
I have managed to overcome both at times, and then I would think that I am cured, but the next time I am in that situation, the fear just takes hold
of me again.
Normally, when I can feel a phobia overtake me, if I can start focussing on my breathing, and forcing myself to become calm, I can do it, except with
crowds and heights. I can fly quite comfortably (but still can't sleep on a long flight, but I think that is something else), but when I start
breathing deeply next to a huge cliff, and become quite calm, then the next second I would look down, and get a shock, and then the panic is not far
away. At least I can console myself that nowadays I can get quite close to the edge of a cliff without panic, IF I force myself to remain calm, but
once the panic sets in, it is almost impossible to keep a cool head. (but I know at least some people that are more scared of heights than me), but
just thinking about jumping from an airplane with a parachute, makes me panic. Guess I'll never be able to do the bungee-jump thing either, lol
