    I used to be terrified of needles. Yet, a bumpy journey through
    life has taught me to brush aside those fears and now I can
    inject others and myself with ease. Both ways, I can do skillfully
    all needle lengths and thicknesses, any substance density, and in
    the foot, arm, shoulder, waist, stomach, you name it.

    Anyone here transited the same journey from fear to comfort in
    something like that?

    I can tie my shoelaces in the dark.

    There comes a time when the pot just isn't enough anymore, so you do what you gotta do.

    Ladders. I have big feet and no grace in movement, so climbing a ladder has always scared me.

    I beat it by painting the inside of my home. It was a 2 week job and I had to climb the ladder so many times that I became use to the feeling of being up in the air. The fear subsided and I now feel at least somewhat comfortable with it.

    I used to live in a two story home with 10 foot ceilings and in the fall always had to climb a ladder to get the leaves out of the gutters. I am not tall and get vertigo looking at my feet. I conquered that fear by buying a one story home and hiring a teenage neighbour to do the climbing/cleaning.

    There are two strategies for dealing with fear. One is to avoid the thing you fear. The other is to do the thing you fear. The first strategy merely postpones the fear; it will keep returning until you apply the second one. The second one will have one or the other of two possible outcomes: either you will survive the ordeal and no longer fear the thing, or it will kill you. Either way, you won't have the fear any more.
