I am terrified of waterfalls as much as I am of snakes. I wont go to see them and I don’t like looking at pictures of them. I have tried making myself look at waterfalls to try to overcome the fear, but no joy. I don’t even like to think about them. I can’t stand dams either. I would imagine that there is a psychological and perhaps a psychiatric reason for this. I even have a fear of bridges and high places as well as enclosed places. I do have major depression and anxiety, and OCD. Perhaps this is all tied in together. I don’t know. But, it still makes me wonder why people still want to go see waterfalls, especially Niagra and Shoshone. Well, that’s their problem. I have my own.
