Come on now. Own up. How many of you use VERTIGO to describe the fear of heights.
One has joked most of one's (tall) adult life that one suffers vertigo just standing up.
One has still so much to learn.
ACROPHOBIA is an extreme or irrational fear of heights.
VERTIGO is more accurately - a spinning sensation that occurs when one is not actually spinning. (Thank you Wikipedia) ....which can of course happen when one is teetering on the edge of a precipice - or standing up.
Is the fear of heights about imagining that one might FALL?
Or that one might JUMP?
One feels very powerful when walking away from those opportunities, and full of life.
