I though I was the only one who had this problem I do take ativan and it helps.
After that I cried and was afraid to drive at all in case I mistakenly ended up on a bridge. That and dont take caffeine and watch your sugar intake, make sure you have been fed with a decent meal. You are already subscribed to this email.
I hope something helps. I only drive to local places now on roads I know and tend to drive at 30-45mph any faster seems to make my problems worse.
So many people focus on the bridge that it magnifies the irrational thought. We are planning a trip to Disney next month and my fear of flying prevents plane travel so we'll be driving. The authority receives a half dozen such requests a year, officials there say. Now ever since that day I can't cross a suspension bridge without getting panicked for days ahead of time thinking about it, or having the same attack when actually crossing it. So a bit of an explanation for my inspiration on this: On Sept.
Common symptoms of gephyrophobia include sweaty palms, a tingling sensation, numbness, trembling, nausea and shortness of breath. As far as flying is concerned, alcohol is the cure, as I am not the pilot, but in the hands of... I sympathize with everyone who has this fear.
As a passenger i'm fine, just the driving i can't do. Their fear may result partly from the fear of enclosure claustrophobia or the fear of heights acrophobia.
Purple, Green And Gold: Last year we were in Chianti country in Tuscany where the roads are steep, hairpin curves and no guard rails - I could not get behind the driver's wheel. The giant loader pulled me and the truck to the top of the quarry, and that was that.
But guess what? Have you ever experienced it? Even thinking about driving across the 4,260-foot suspension span made her start to feel dizzy, made her heart race, her breath tightening into short rapid gasps. Enough people have fear problems there that a special program is available to hire drivers to take gephyrophobes across the bridge.
The strangest part was I felt like my body was going to lift up and fly over the edge. Is this weired never ad a problem with a bridge gone over same 1 4 over 20 years I can't do it now I can't explain how it how it feels it's an over whelming rush panic attack all in 1 my sister think it's realted 2 the death of my mum last year I don't think it is I av a 5 yr old neice I i wanna do stuff with cudnt even take her on Pier at coast I don't wanna keep missing out on things this isn't me never ad problem b4,any advice is truly welcomed.How To Say Gephyrophobia
Healing is avaliable............ I have mapped out routes to avoid certain roads and bridges. I too welcome any suggestions, but it seems like this fear may be too tough, and legitimate, to overcome.
