What phobias do you suffer from? Personally, I am thermophobic, as I have a big fear of heat (especially hot objects like stoves, grills, etc.)

People are afraid of heights because they're afraid they'll jump.

That being said, I'm afraid of heights.

I found this particularly amusing. Hi Misty, how scary do you find the notion of albuminuria yourself?

Bloody "THIS IS AN ATTACK WEBSITE" warning buggered up my post (Hit submit, it gobbled up my post).

But in summation, I don't like 'rickety heights'. As in, I don't like standing on anything that doesn't feel rock solid. IE: Stepladders or regular ladders. 1 foot off the ground and I'm worried I'll fall off and bash my skull in or something.

But standing on the edge of a precipice is of no concern of mine, and I'll enjoy the view.. I don't mind being very high up, so long as the structure I'm in or on feels solid. So yeah, I'd rather stand on the edge of a cliff than be a foot off the ground on something that shakes when I move.
