Day 10: Something you’re afraid of
There aren’t too many things that I really am afraid of. I don’t have a fear of bugs or spiders or anything else creepy, crawly.
There is one thing that I am afraid of though. And that is falling. I am not afraid of heights. I can be in tall buildings on the top floor and have no issues with looking out the window. I also don’t have issues standing up on a roof.
Where my fear comes in is when I am standing on something that is not stable or can possibly cause me to fall. Such as, I have a panic attack just from standing on a chair. I am a big sized girl. And chairs can break. So I get images of the chair breaking as I stand on it.
I also have panic attacks while climbing up ladders. Once up on the roof, I am fine. I just get scared on the climb up.
I know it probably seems weird. I can’t really explain it. All I know, is that when I am standing on a chair or climbing up ladders, my heart feels like it is beating so fast that it will burst out of my chest.
What are you afraid of?
