Really Scared

I am so afraid of heights. Everytime I get in a situation where I'm scared of the height of something, I get this huge adrenaline rush and just tense up. I feel that being scared of heights holds me back from things like climbing a rock wall, going hiking and even certain escalators that are too steep. I don't view it as an absolute negative, I just view it as a part of me.

i never used to be afraid of heights. when i was a kid, i would climb the biggest tree in the neighborhood with no problems whatsoever. but one day, when i was about 20 , i all of a sudden was VERY nervous about heights. now i have trouble even getting on my roof and cleaning the chimney.<br />
i've never had a fall, or a bad experience with heights, so i don't know why all of a sudden, i am afraid.
