Hi Alexia, You may remember that I came to see you in Barnstaple a few times with regard to my fear of heights. Just to let you know that all went well on my trip back to New Zealand. There were occasions when I started to get panic attacks but overall I was able to get through them with relative ease. Once was when I was on a high bridge heading off Manhattan on the way to the airport, and the other was climbing up several flights of stairs inside the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Both times I was able to breathe deep, raise my head and look straight ahead as you suggested and get through the situation. I avoided going over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, though did go in a boat underneath it!
