Acrophobia - the fear of heights.
Story time: when I was little, there was this special place that all the neighborhood kids go to across the street. There was this tree that grew on the side of a building, all the way to the roof. Kids would climb up and always brag about this amazing view from the roof top which always made me jealous. I did try climbing up multiple times which always ended horribly. I just can't seem to get past maybe 4 feet off the ground without getting dizzy, having a crazy panic attack, can't breathe and the fear of just dying. Plus, having Palmar Hyperhidrosis (excessive, uncontrollable sweating of the palm or hands) makes things worse. But that's another story. To shorten this novel, I never did climb that stupid tree and would later find out that I hated escalators, elevators, carnival rides (ferries wheel, roller coaster etc), standing close to an edge / looking down from the second floor and what really bothers me is that, looking at someone close to an edge of a cliff or whatever. Drives me insane! Hence, this day at the bridge was no different. Right after taking this photo, I left and walk all the way back down. This was another level of fear. In conclusion, please don't make fun of people who has this phobia. It's a serious thing and you just have no idea how they really feel inside, even if they're ashamed to admit, that it scares the crap out of them. K bye!
