    Go skydiving. That will kick start your fear right away.

    Don't like needles? Get a tattoo.

    Thank you sir. Will do. Thank you for the very informative link too. I had a question I wanted to ask you that I didn't want to ask on here but I couldn't send it to you. It's ok.

    LOL skydiving eh? Isn't a fear of heights really just a fear of falling though?

    As for needles, they don't bother me. I don't have any tattoos but I could get one if I want to.

    Once you get used to it, you need to keep familiar with it. I set up my aerial once a shift and I climb it once a tour. That way, it becomes a habit as routine as stringing lights.

    Good point. It's one thing to get over it but you still gotta keep at it. Thanks.

    I went on the escalator at a Tigers game and it must be about 80 feet high or something and it made me a bit nervous but I did it.
