    What is good to keep down acrophobia?

    I want to know, I'm sure some of you know what I have, and I trust you guys. It's just ripping my mind apart.

    swallow another piece of glass so that it opens you up and allows you to finally poop, then you can poop all over your phobia.

    Get a good hobby to get interested in, and hopefully it will occupy your mind instead of a bunch of other crap that isn't good for you to think about.

    Jump off of something tall. That way you’ll get over it.

    Not too tall, mind you. 20 feet tops, and remember to tuck and roll to absorb impact.

    It was great when it first came out. I played Zelda (as in play play, not video game play) all the time in recess.

    I remember me and my friend made our own Zelda characters.
    It was the children of Link and Zelda, and we had special powers. My friend had special powers on her forehead, and I had a special power in my finger. We got that special power because Ganondorf stabbed Zelda with a sword a few times in the belly while she was pregnant with us. So we had some of Ganon's powers or something. I can't really remember all the details.

    I think it was terrible then and terrible now.

    But that’s just my opinion.

    No like fear of open spaces? I also feel like a little bit of oxygen keeps getting sucked out of my head. I don't know what to do. Earlier today I nearly had a panic attack.

    Isn't that agoraphobia?

    Ignoring the gentle mockery. The doctor will most likely prescribe Prozac. I read that only two things need to be learned to beat agoraphobia. The panic attack, no matter how severe it is, no matter what the circumstances, will not cause the affected individual to lose control of himself/herself.

    I'm acrophobia, but I know the difference between virtual and reality...I got it when I was like 10-11 years old.
    Also I can handle it well...just I can't handle when there is no support

    I'm not going to attach some "phobia" name to myself, but I don't like heights too much, either.

    It's not heights that bother me so much as hitting grounds at speed...

    I guess technically, you could beat BotW without dressing up like a girl. But you'd have to bypass that whole divine beast and fight the boss before Ganon in the castle.

    I was more referring to the fact that you played that section in a dress to, and I quote, "Get into character"!

    I generally pick up spiders and let them go outside. It used to drive my ex wife crazy.

    Now, if I lived in say Australia I would probably feel very differently. I heard if an Australian bites you you turn into a kangaroo.

    I thought it was funny to dress up like a Gerudo in BotW.
    It was humoristic.

    I don't understand why you must still wear it after you have helped them out, though. That makes little sense.

    Yeah, that part didn't make sense. Kind of like how the Ganon goop is still on the Hyrule Castle after you defeat him and win the game.

    It's not like when you finished Mario World and they thought to give you a graphically new game!

    That's only because the game doesn't save you actually beating Ganon. It acknowledges it with a star next to your file but doesn't do anything else.
