No. A fear of heights is a the body and mind's natural reaction to feeling endangered by what would happen were you to actually fall over a sheer cliff, like El Capitan (Sp?). When I was two or three my mom and dad took me swimming, but I was too scared of the big pool to want to go in, no matter how much they reassured me I'd be okay. (I don't actually remember this, btw -- my folks told me years later). That's the same instinct kicking in. <br />
<br />
If you do want to find out what things are like after death, I suggest getting a library card instead, and reading about out-of-body experiences and such. It's a lot safer than what you're thinking about.

Fear of toppling off. I could handle heights better if I didn't get that pull.<br />

My hubby works at heights too. Insane heights. He says he doesn't like heights but just focusing on what he's doing. Lol, stuff that I reckon.

Good question, I'd never actually considered that. I'm not afraid of heights, but when I look over a cliff or a tall building or whatever, I do feel kind of mesmerised. <br />
Yeah, I suppose you are presented with a choice to solve all your problems in seconds - maybe people with vertigo do find that option too tempting and so steer clear of Beachy Head (infamous suicide spot on the south coast of England - just some added info for anyone from far flung fields!).

No. I'm afraid of heights and in no way do I want to throw myself off of a building. I'm not suicidal.
