Has anyone ever been afraid of gravity? Like you fear that it will stop working and just float away. If so, how have you combated that fear to reduce it/make it go away.
I seem to be fine inside a building, but a big huge open space, like a park scares me cause I feel like i can't grab onto anything. http://www.phobiasource.com/barophobia-fear-of-gravity/

Hi,
I don't know i fear gravity itself, but open spaces are a big problem. I struggle to get to around alot of time cause my anxiety goes through the roof. It's really bad in parking lots, schools, stores, etc...i just don't feel secure. I kind of relate in that it feels like im floating a bit or light headed. Im the same...need something to hold onto

This is exactly what I experience? Have you had any successful coping strategies?

Sadly have not found anything that helps. I think exposure is good....standing in the middle of a room w/ nothing. Just stand there focusing on your breathing. "Gravity will hold me, my feet are fine, and im safe just as i am." I think maybe doing at home will provide some exposure, but in a more comfortable enviornment.
