I am an anxiety sufferer & natural worrier.
Yesterday I booked a paraglide, I'm in Queenstown, NZ on holiday & wanted to do something which challenged me.
I'm a total control freak, hate flying in planes as I feel out of control. So this was a big step!
(After the day in a plane by myself it took me to get here)
Spent all last night in bed worrying, I then had my first sleep paralysis/night terror episode in yonks.
I kept imagining the worst cars scenario, what if the parachute collapsed, what if we get tangled with a bird, what if we collide with another paraglider etc etc
Was petrified on the mini bus ride up the peak, but I went through with it. I'm still here to tell the tale & yes I would probably do it again.
There is a saying "do one thing every day that scares you", I think it is good advice. Now when I'm sweating the small stuff I can remind my self of the day I jumped off a cliff with nothing but an oversized kite attached to me!
Bungy next?! Erm maybe not!
