The day I jumped into the ocean
Shruti Sharma

I’m acrophobic, heights terrify me even on steps stools and ladders. I’d prefer my feet never leave the ground. However, I can’t ride in a car for more than about 2–3 hours because of a bad back and I just want to get to where I’m going as quickly as possible. So…if the trip by car is more than about 3 hours, I take a plane. It still freaks me out to the point where I take Dramamine to keep calm. It’s an artificial way to beat my fear but I’ll take it.
