Our expert says:
Nothing whatever stupid about it. Fear of heights is one of several rather common fears, and fortunately responds extremely well to basic treatment by CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ). DOP see a good local shrink for assessment and treatment advice - I would STRONGLY recommend the Behaviour Therapy / CBT approach, as it works well and you can use it whenever you need it, and gain control of the problem. Some meds may help, but that's more temporary, more expensive in the long run, can cause their own problems, and can impair your driving.
