How to overcome a fear of high places? [Aug. 23rd, 2016|11:35 am]
The Question Club

[tsuperbus]
Seriously, it's pathetic. I can't even climb a ladder without breaking out into a cold sweat and freezing up. The fear is worst when I'm looking down on a wide, expansive space; such as a football stadium. Or when I'm sat in one of the "upper circles" of the local theatre. It's okay when I look directly down at the stage, but if I look across from myself and get a glimpse of the ceiling, I realize how high up I am and how big the room is, and start shaking and feeling sick.

Sometimes I am afraid to leave the house because I know that I will see the sky, and I feel like I am falling up into it. As if I am clinging to the ceiling of the biggest possible room, and the floor is so far below me that I can't even see it.

I find it hard to walk across bridges, even if it's only a pedestrian bridge across a road.

It sucks, because I want to get trained as an electrician. However, "sparkies" tend to work up ladders, installing ceiling lights. Even plumbers sometimes have to install things like guttering and ducts, so no matter what trade I enter I am guaranteed to have to go to a high place at some point. On some days, I can sort of handle it. But on others, it's just too much for me to handle.

The weird thing is, I'm totally okay in aeroplanes. Elevators, too. And I can easily cross a bridge as long as I'm in a car or on the bus. I think small spaces make me feel safe. Which is odd, because I'm such a big guy.

I live in the UK. If anyone could signpost me towards some sort of support network, that would be cool.

I have my own office on campus for this semester only. It is very prison-industrial. What should I bring in to make it look less like jail and more like a workspace?

What do you have in your office? On your desk?

dk;dc: what's for dinner tonight?

If you have lived alone, did you have a hard time adjusting back into living with other people, like a roommate or boyfriend/girlfriend?

Did you settle into weird habits that didn't agree with the other person you lived with (i.e. Drinking out of the carton or leaving things out)?

EDIT: DK/DC/I never lived alone: will you sign my yearbook? I need to look back and remember myself being super popular.

Suicide In Home. [Aug. 23rd, 2016|02:26 pm]

How would you feel if you found out that someone shot and killed themselves in your home before you lived there?


I just found this out from my neighbor. They told me that the former owner's first husband shot himself in the head in the upstairs bedroom. In the three years that I have lived here I have never felt uncomfortable in any way up there. I just keep picturing what the event must have looked like and I find it upsetting. I was wondering how you guys might feel about this.

Earlier today, two guys knocked on my door. I didn't answer and they moved on and went next door. About half an hour ago, they came back and knocked again. I ignored them again, but it freaked me out a little.

So, tqc, tell me Who were they? so I can relax about it.

The one at the door looked like a clean cut white guy, late teens to early twenties. I didn't get a good look at the other one. They both were wearing shorts, but I think they too long to rule out Mormons. JW are more likely here, but I've never seen them double back.
