I understand completely! I used to be scared of falling from heights, not a good thing if you are a firefighter; so I pushed myself to embrace my fear. I volunteered for high angle rescue training, working off 100' aerial ladders and then did sky diving until I solo'd. I don't have a fear of falling now. Now my problem is when i get to the edge or a really high roof or at the top of a 100' aerial ladder, i want to jump. It has nothing to do with a death wish, just everything to do with that flying like a bird thing. :crazysmile:
