I just wanna know if this is an irrational fear or if it's normal. From the time I was a teen, I've always been afraid to ride inside of elevators. So afraid in fact that I usually prefer to take the stairs. I absolutely CANNOT ride an elevator by myself. Whenever I have to ride in an elevator, I just tense up, freeze, and keep imagining crazy scenarios like the elevator crashing or getting stuck inside of one. When I reach my destination, I rush out of it like Sonic The Hedgehog on crack. The crazy part is that I've never had a bad experience with elevators! Is there something wrong with me or is this fear normal?
