Anyone else have any irrational fears?
I don't necessarily have a fear of heights (love roller coasters, no issues with flying, etc.) but anytime I'm at a high rise with a balcony, I can't relax for fear that someone is going to fall over the edge. It's one of the reasons I hate going to the beach. I know it rarely happens which is what makes it irrational.

I don’t really have a desire to be in a high rise building now.

Going over the side of a bridge in a vehicle
Only tall bridges
I’ll unbuckle my seat belt to make sure I die on impact & not because I’m trapped fixing to drown

Heights/tall bridges, especially when I’m driving.

Tall buildings and bridges. (Yet mountains don't bother me)
Bugs Just hate them.

Constantly think about my loved ones dying. Like my kids and wife. It cripples me sometimes thinking about how awful it would be and how I don't think I could go on.

I have the same fear. as a taller than average person, I always feel like the railing is too low and that I could easily tip over it if off balance.

re: Anyone else have any irrational fears?
I have a recurring nightmare of driving up an extremely tall and steep bridge terrified of what it's going to be like going down, always wake up before I have to go down.

I'm also terrified of surviving a plane crash in the ocean and swimming around out there alone

Thats not an irrational fear. Falling over a balcony of a high rise is a scary thing. Regardless of its frequency.

Being afraid of mustard or the color purple or some bull shite like that is an irrational fear.

re: Anyone else have any irrational fears?
Not sure it's entirely irrational, but I'm not at all comfortable on high ledges like cliffs or hiking trails that hug a mountinside. My fear isn't the height, but rather of slipping and falling off the side. I was a nervous wreck watching my kids run around at the Grand Canyon.

I've only had this experience once, but the worst panic attack I've ever had was on an offshore fishing trip and a massive container ship got within a mile of us. The size of it absolutely frightened me and I was convinced it was heading towards us.
