I am absolutely TERRIFIED of depths. not heights – depths. I hate staring into deep holes. I am also terrified of going anywhere near the edge of something like a cliff if there's nothing to keep me safe. I can't go within 6 feet of the edge. But if there's a fence or something to stop me falling off, I'm hanging over it.

Weird.

PS. I'm also scared of caterpillars.

I believe that would be
Aeroacrophobia- Fear of open high places.
which I have. I believe it applies to any place where one, if they fell, would fall for a while. On a positive note, at least you don't have logizomechanophobia- Fear of computers! :lol:

In an episode of Wizards of Waverly Place, one of the characters gets scared and faints, immediately wakes up screaming, and repeats it, then is asked why she did that. She explains that she faints when she's scared, but is also scared of fainting, so she wakes up. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
