Writer's Block: I scare myself

What is your greatest fear?

This falls into the category of phobia. I have the fear of falling. I don't have a fear of heights. If I am in a secure enclosed location, such as a skyscraper or airplane, being high in the sky doesn't both me. But when there is open air around me, such as on a bridge, I feel the panic and terrible fear that I could be blown or bumped over the side. My heart races and my legs feel like they will buckle. It's a very unpleasant feeling.
