This is going to sound stupid. But everytime when I use ladders people think I have a fear of heights! But the actual fact is I have a fear of the ladders is more like it. I've noticed most of the ladders that are sold locally are often way too short. E.g. You usaually need to end up stepping on the last step to reach your target. How to balance? I really think ladders makers should make sure that the support reaches the waist and not the knee area. By the way, I'm 1.63. Maybe the ladders standard size are not meant for people like me? FED UP WITH LADDERS!
Erm.... no offence, but....
Fear of ladders? You're sure that it's not acrophobia (fear of heights)?
i think after you try this, no more fear
but seriously.. just go up and down a few times, you'll become desensitised to it
