AOA,

I am afraid of heights and can not look down from roofs or high places. The greatest fear is when I see myself climbing upstairs which are open from two sides. I can not see and look down from a buildings upper floors especially if it is open to height or is partly or naked to the open space of the the height. Once I took a ride of an open chairlift in Beirut which passed and took riders from the tops of the hills. I dreaded to see and look downside from my chairlift as I was passing above the heights of snow covered tops of the mountains. This experience was dreadful for me and I closed my eyes throughout this journey. Whenever I see downside from heights especially when there is no barriers between me and the open space from the height, I feel terrified and my legs start to feel as if I am loosing life from my legs and my breath starts to pounder and I have to take a deep breath to recover myself from this feeling of high dread and semi unconsciousness and I remove myself from such scene. This also happens to me when I am in tube lift with an open view or an escalator which has open view and I get dreadful if I see outside the open through the glass window when it starts to climb up.

My second fear is from meeting new people. I feel anxious and uncomfortable when I am in the company of new people. I become absolutely quiet or I talk a little if necessary. This is because I fear that I may make a mistake if I talked to new people very openly, and also a fear that I may not be welcomed if I talked frankly, there is shyness and partly a fear of being rediculed, and my mid goes blank as to what to talk or what to talk about when I am in the company of new people. and I also feel a lack confidence in meeting new people.

As advised by you on this forum, I took 4 does of Anacardium 200 and today took a dose of Pulsatilla 200 for shyness and social fear and I am feeling a bit better since I took anacardium 200. I still have to see the effects of Pulsatilla 200 I took today in the morning.

I live in Lahore.

15 years ago a homeopath treated me with Natr Mur which improved my hair growth and in the beginning. But later it stopped working. Now I have several medicines at home Pulstilla 200, Calc Carb 200, Nux Vomica 30, Gelsemium 30, Graphites 30, Ambra grisea 200, Creatagus Q, Kali phos 6, .

Pls ask for more info if you need.

Thanking you.
