Bear with me this might be a bit long... Okay so we were having a discussion at the dinner table tonight with all the family gathered around. We were talking about recent things we had done, seen etc. Well I was telling everyone about our family trip to the zoo in Cincinnati. Well snce our last visit there they had created a new entrance. Instead of parking being on zoo property they constructed a parking lot on an adjacent street and a walkway that goes from the lot (over the roadway below) to the zoo. Okay that's cool I am psyched about being there and can't wait to go in to see what's new. So we cross the parking lot go up the elevator and get to the top where the walkway over the road is. As I take a step onto the walkway a wave of unbelievable fear sweeps over me. What was I thinking????????? OMG....I am afraid of heights and this walkway is at least 30-40 feet above the road. So the rest of the family proceed to walk and there I am frozen dead in my tracks. They all try to coax me to go but I cannot move. My knees felt like they were going to give out from underneath me and I was getting dizzy on the verge of kissing concrete. So my kids finally came back for me....gee thanks... and with eyes closed, led me ever so slowly across this walkway. 20 ft seemed like an eternity. What would have taken 2 minutes to cross took me 15 mins. Well needless to say after that ordeal, I was able to actually enjoy our zoo visit until we decided to leave and the whole thing started all over again. Well some of you will say OMG how pathetic while others will know exactly where I am coming from. Well the debate at the table ended up being is it all in my head and I have the power to change what happened or was my reaction truly real and can't be helped? I would appreciate your input on this...What do you think? Do I as my brother so eloquently put it need to 'Grow Up?" Or am I not crazy and am entitled to feel the way I do?
