    Does anyone else get this feeling....


    Whereby your in bed, and at that stage where you have your eyes closed half sleep(can hear stuff going on tho like outside etc) but not fully asleep.

    and you get that falling sensation from climbing ladders all day??

    I get it most nites, sometimes I either jump out of bed, or force myself to wake up to make sure its not happening for real....!!!!!

    wierd sensations!!!

    I have had the same thing before, not any more, but I did used to suddenly gitter or jolt, and wake myself, just before going to sleep. If its something that is troubling you. I have one solution.

    Go rock climbing. Once you've been up 60 feet on a harness, and come off, it wont trouble you any more. Its not to say that there isn't an inherent risk when working on a ladder, but you will soon find faith in your climbing ability. Once you've got over a hard route, a dozen times. It will make climbing a ladder seem like kids play.

    Basically face your fear.

    Never had that G but just climbing the ladder in itself was me facing my fears, hasn't got me over my fear of heights totally but ladder heights don't bother me in the slightest anymore. Still won't go up Blackpool tower though lol.

    Wierd that others have felt it though.

    I hear a rattling noise when I'm in bed. Usually it's someone trying to lift my ladders away. Never happened yet mind, but that's my fear. Always paddlocked though ;)

    Last 2 posts tickled me! :) guess that's why your a h&s guy smurf!
    Didn't realise the thread was about w/c anxieties, in which case I've not had it, just the standard feel like I'm falling sensation. Although I did once dream all night I'd been at work, and had to take the day off to recover, but it was this time of year!
