Belen 1Kaitlyn BelenKaryn SimonelliEnglish 11127 October 2014Afraid of HeightsEveryone has a moment when their fear is overwhelming and they feel vulnerable to everything. The heart starts to pound fast, hands start to get sticky, knees feel like they are turning slowly to jelly, and become a little light headed at the obstacle that's placed in front me. My response was always the same when I had to get on anything that had to do with heights. It was nerve racking for me.
