Personally? No, but to watch my child or husband or someone else be up high and looking in danger... yes.

I linked to you in my post today, introducing you since you are on my blogroll! Hope that your day is blessed Mel.

Hi Jennifer,
I'm glad that you are not afraid of heights. I must admit that I am really afraid of heights. Even looking out of a high rise building window would give me a cold chill in my stomach. Thanks for your visit and comments. And thank you too for including me in your blogroll. It's such an honor. God bless you and your loved ones always my friend.

I am not afraid of heights, but do tend to have a little butterfly action when I first look down from a high place. I have a dream to sky dive one day. I know, I am not getting any younger. But hubby wants me to keep both feet on the ground. Something about insurance and missing me. Is he telling me something.

Hi Sameera,
It's good that you are not afraid of heights and in fact, heights give you a thrill. You can probably do some mountain climbing one day to feel the rush of fresh air in the rarefied heights of the mountains. BTW, I remember that it is your fondest wish to do bungee jumping someday. Well, good luck my friend and I hope you realize that dream. Thanks for your visit and point of view. God bless you always my good friend.

Hi Jerry Junque,
Maybe your husband is also afraid of heights and he fears for your safety. But skydiving can be a safe recreational activity if you have been fully trained by competent teachers. Insurance has nothing to do with that. Nobody's sure of what will become of him or her. Thanks for the visit and point of view. God bless.

I don't know the type of heart that lies within my chest. Fear is almost out of my zone. There are few things I am really afaid of, and height is not amonst those.

Hi AZ Blogging,
You're a remarkable person to have almost no fear in you. Fear is a natural defense of humans against present and potential danger and its presence may even save our lives. Excess fear or phobia is different. It is an unexplainable and excess amount of fear in a seemingly unfearful situation. Nice to know that you have conquered your fears. Thanks for your visit and point of view. God bless.

I use to be very afraid of high bridges when I was growing up especially the ones that had the metal lifts to let the ships and boats through. I always feared I would get caught on the metal grate and go right over into the water. The higher the bridge the more stressed I would be traveling over it.
As an adult I have finally conquered that fear. The only way to get around Hampton Roads, VA is to go through tunnels or over bridges. I just got use to it whe I started driving myself.

Wow, so at last I appear within the top ten of a certain blog? Hmmm. I think this months I will have to do better.

Thanks very much.

I am afraid of heights. Even going near the railing on the second floor of a shopping mail makes my knees buckle. Watching someone on TV go near the edge or look down from a cliff or skyscraper makes me have vertigo.

However, I don't let it stop me from doing things.

Hi Kelly,
Yes, there are people who have fear of heights. We both do, but as you said, that does not stop us from doing what we have to do. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.

Nope. But I used to be. Now, not anymore when I was able to conquer that fear by riding the Superman rollercoaster.
