    Look Back

    Whenever I'm up on a high place, I'm frightened and can't look down and I always look behind me to see if there's someone there. I'm afraid they'll push me. I went to the top of the Empire State building and needless to say I didnt go near the edge.

    I almost had a panic attack walking across a

    flyover. I was halfway across when I realised I wasn't walking across the ground, I was walking over a giant never ending bridge. OVER WATER! O_O I am TRAUMATISED of bridges. And falling. And drowning. And I can't swim. :( Never again.

    Not knowing what or where I'm falling into makes me so nervous and anxious. I just would hate to fall in love with someone cause I know that sooner or later falling is gonna lead to the ground to break
