I have experienced something like this before. I think that it is a form of agoraphobia.

i have the same fear, it is called casadastraphobia

I have a friend with this, he says it's not as bad at night. I try to tell him if it were even a possibility that it would be all over the news ppl randomly being sucked into the sky

It makes me feel so much better knowing someone else has experienced this. I somehow caught this fear when I was walking across an open field with nothing around (walls, lamposts, etc) and it made me feel awful. I was walking across the field with my friend at the time and I felt a huge urge to grab hold of her so i had an anchor if i started floating into the sky

I found this video. And I'm not alone. I thought I was the only one who is fear looking to the sky and fall. I'm used to looking up but. If I'm near on the tallest building, I feel like I'm falling

Whatever this is has caused a lot of damage on my life. It started young and I thought I’d outgrow it but never have. There’s really nothing as scary as the thought of falling into the sky.

I resolved this problem within the week! It got way worse and then totally fine. The key? The fear spread to being inside as well, so I couldn’t even escape it. This fear is rooted in not realizing that up and down do not exist in space, and only in relation to earth. We are on a floating spinning ball in ETERNITY! This gave me panic attacks this week when it truly dawned on me despite “knowing” these facts my whole life. Up and down are just on earth, and as long as you’re here, you’re fine.:) don’t psych yourselves out. Feel free to hit me up if you have any more concerns. It took a trip to the ER and a confrontation of the infinite abyss surrounding us in every direction to heal myself. But I avoided apparently years of agoraphobia. Totally fine now within a week. Avoiding all chemicals and weed.

Flankreality just realized I basically repeated my above comment. My bad. No therapy, no professional help. Just sleep and time and self assurance.
Asa Goldstein (28 days ago)
Flankreality you will gain a new appreciation for the smallness and beauty of the earth. It’s all we have. You are on the verge of existential realization.
Asa Goldstein (28 days ago)
Flankreality no, I have yet to lay on my back and see if it happens again. It had progressed over the week and suddenly got much worse. I guarantee it is related to your perception of the world and universe. Despite my years of existential musing, I never once truly confronted the fact that I am a lil guy hanging off a thing in an infinite universe. There is no up or down in space. That’s also the reason it gets worse at night; you really have to confront it. I still feel uneasy about the sky but i am no longer having major trouble being outside or in open areas like I was for that week. I am so sorry for everyone continuing to go through this. I ended up in the ER having an intense and panicked realization of my place in the universe. I started to realize that right behind everything I looked at was infinite blackness, like the night and day sky. I am 95% sure that this experience of casadastrophobia is resistance to the encroaching but extremely jarring mental frame of coming to terms with the reality of our existence. There is very little holding us down, but there’s nothing pulling us up, as far as we know. Hopefully this helps and doesn’t throw you into a panic or crisis. But “people on earth” is not just a character or idea in your mind that you’ve heard about. That’s you. Holy fuck.

Im scared of skies too when Im on the third floor when I look up at the very middle it creeps the hell out of me and I go inside my room instead to calm myself down and also when I dream about something related to skies like going outside and walking on the side of the road it creeps me out looking at the skies even in my dream and I kinda like panic in a second floor that is roofless makes me scared and my heart starts to pound and I just hold myself not to panic cause I dont wanna look like Im insane but when Im at the ground floor I feel safe but not looking above me for too long it makes me want to seek shelter and not look at the sky

I just kinda started getting this problem like a couple days ago
Siinyx (1 month ago)
Easier said than done but it's best at this stage you continue to go out as much as possible to dissipate the fear. As someone experiencing this for nearly 7 years: if you let the anxiety consume you it is possible you will become agoraphobic over time. I recommend seeking help immediately cause it's hard to come out of.
Asa Goldstein (1 month ago)
ProfessorEG me too very recently! I really want it to get better. Very concerned it could turn into agoraphobia. I want to live my fuckin life!
ProfessorEG (2 months ago)
Me too its crippling. I cannot walk outside or I'll feel swept off my feet and I'll grab onto stuff

I have the same exact problem. In the day is worst than the night. When i see the clouds moving i feel like im in that anime Patema Inverted and im gonna fall into the sky.
Siinyx (3 months ago)
For anyone struggling with this. I promise you everything is going ti be ok. I've been suffering with this for 6 years, here are some casa-hacks that worked for me personally: - Invest in a cool umbrella or parasol, people will give you looks but who cares if you can ignore the sky while being out. If you can't bare that then get a hoodie or scarf to put over your head. - go outside every day, even if it's only for 5 minutes. It'll make things less worse in the long run, staying in the house will only make it worse. - take time to distract yourself snd self sooth. Blast on some good music, get something to fiddle with, color book or sketchbook. Anything to keep your mind off the sky. - BREATHE. Slowly, count. I know even when we know the fact that it's impossible to float in the sky, you need to SAY IT and make your brain confirm. Do what you have to do to get by. No method is silly, no healthy coping skills are ridiculous, do what you must and don't be afraid to ask for help or seek assistance. People can't relate to your struggle and that's ok, they just need to be aware. DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO AND STAY STRONG.

+Asa Goldstein As of these recent years I am seeking therapy. Right now I am taking simple counseling to sort out other issues I've been dealing with. As this is a condition that is not well known at all, they could only treat me for agoraphobia as they saw a connection in that and there has been some improvement. Their advice involved daily walks for 5-10 minutes, weekly exercise, self soothing activities which for me involves art and meditation, avoidance of caffeine, improved sleeping schedules, thus far and I have seen improvements in my ability to deal with sunny clear days. Otherwise, no, I have not come into contact with any specific type of therapy that I could recommend at this time.
Asa Goldstein (1 month ago)
Siinyx did you ever seek therapy or other treatments? I don’t want to have to deal with this for years and years to come... I can barely fall asleep.

For some reason I have this but only in dreams. It's kind of scary to dream every night because I'll look up into the sky (I often have dreams about things I love like birds and bats and many other animal) and I'll suddenly be super upset and disoriented. Not really in real life though, just dreams.
Erica Nicole (4 months ago)
I have an irrational fear of the sky too. I told a family member that, the fear of the sky, and I was looked at like a crazy person. It's a legitimate fear. I have it too. If you ever find a remedy, let us know. Good luck!

As a Christian i cling to the LORD Jesus whenever i have extreme vertigo and know that at his Second Coming i will indeed fall into the sky to be with Him forever. i believe this is the generation Christians will be caught up in the clouds since we are in the last days. "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." 1 Thessalonians 4:17 (KJV) Jesus Christ is LORD.

I do not know what kind of fear it was because I dreamed one night that I walked into a long glass tunnel under the sea that I was just one and very dark in the middle of it.it's so creepy that's my worst nightmare and I don't want to happen again.😨

it's awsome to know that there are more of us, even thou my case is a bit different... i'm pretty sure i have this phobia because of a "trauma" in my childhood BUT who knows?
IfFaCT0r95 (5 months ago)
You’re definitely not alone. I think the floating feeling in your stomach makes it 10 times worse. Some days it’s better, sometimes it’s much worse. Knowing that it’s irrational doesn’t really help, and that’s definitely scary. Just glad, and sad that I’m not alone on this I guess 😅

I can relate so much with your fear of looking up to the sky or looking at tall buildings especially looking up to the roof of a building when you can see it from the first floor. I feel like Im on the verge of falling up even when I know that’s imposible. It got better for me when I faced my fear by taking a dose of LSD and laying on my rooftop. It was probably the most frightening thing I have ever felt in my life. Even when I felt extreme fear I didn’t close my eyes or stopped and after some time I just calmed down by realizing how small we are compared to the universe and realizing there’s no really Up or Down in some way, if you think about it we are just part of SPACE and somehow this calms me a lot. I also allowed my consciousness to expand to the infinity of the universe and felt the connection that we all have with everything. It’s very beautiful and my words can’t describe what I felt. You can do it by just laying down without ingesting anything, Im not telling you guys that you need to take a dose of LSD, some of you would find it odd or extreme but hey, It worked for me. Anyways, I came to the conclusion that even if I fall to the sky (Which is impossible) I would be the very first human to ever fly and that would be awesome. Im a true believer that the best way to face your innners fears is by just Facing them and realizing it’s only FEAR and that the mind’s power it’s very strong, either for bath or for good, but you need to understand that it is only your mind and not reality.

also good point same sensation as being afraid of heights , if all of us also have fear of heights maybe we could try to conquer that and kill two birds with one stone good luck!
Michael Rutherford (5 months ago)
I lift my arm up and watch gravity bring it back down definitely calms me down. Also I remind myself that I wouldn't be the only person or thing that is pulled into the sky. This is a fantasy phobia because it has a ZERO chance of happening.

I have an immense, but not consistent, fear of falling into the sky. It's the worst when the sky's clear and blue, and almost just as bad at night. People think it's weird, but it's something that actually affects me. I wish I could control it, but I can't. Just imagining myself falling into the sky gets my heart racing and my palms sweating really bad. I think it might be tied to agoraphobia... but I'm really not sure. I read online somewhere that the best treatment for this is exposure therapy, but I'm not sure about that, either. I can't deal with stuff lmao.

I lost my mom 2 years ago, And soon after her death. I noticed I can't be in tall buildings or look up at them. And gradually I now can't look up into the sky which is something I loved. I did truly think I was the only one, Cause I have never even heard of this. I am working with a therapist, I do have a severe Fear of heights, I kinda wonder if that is what caused it. But for me, I hate leaving the house because of it, But as u said... If I am in a car or house it doesn't bother me. I did notice if I am in a place with a lot of windows, It is night or I can see past trees or mountains it gets way worse. I had a panic attack right in a burger king in Indiana, Cause of the windows and I could see past mountains. I rushed to the bathroom since there were no windows to hide so people wouldn't see me freaking out.

+Mancho Sikharulishvili I felt like that last week. I'm trying to get my doc to give me meds that actually work. I also try not to focus on it too. It kind of rules my life right now. My wife always wants to go out and do stuff all the time. It really sucks. I have ptsd too and it makes it worse.
Mancho Sikharulishvili (5 months ago)
You know when it started to me 3 years ago I had no idea what was it and I have never been to therapist so I had to deal with it all alone with Google and so on but here are things which made me alive even in the darkest times 1) I stated reading Harry Potter and imagining that there was a world like this it was so cool I started dreaming and had no time to think about what was going on with me of course not absolutely but I felt much better 2) I started writing and it made me feel better because I had to dream and think what would be the next chapter about so it made me feel alive kinda 3) there were only few times when I didn't go somewhere because of my anxiety so tried not to leave time for thinking but it was too hard then I felt better sometimes but now it's back and I'm too frightened but never wanna give up because I have always wanted to have a great life and how can anxiety disturb me if my wish to be happy is so powerful. You just have to stay strong and don't let something what is only in our minds disturb us
Mancho Sikharulishvili (5 months ago)
Absolutely nothing I just tried to live with it and don't pay attention. Sometimes I felt better when I had positive moments in my life being with friends and so on but sometimes it feels like I can't handle it anymore... OCD depression anxiety derealization... Last night I was so afraid that sky frightened me that my heart was pounding and thought about every stupid details and that I could never go outside again but even at home I'm frightened all the time...

I always thought this was part of agoraphobia so it interesting to know this sensation/fear has a name all to itself lol. Only a week ago whilst on holiday I felt quite paralysed by this fear as I went to have a look at the hotels rooftop pool😳as if that wasnt bad enough as I fear heights, the fact their were no objects around, like a high wall, trees, cafe...nothing but the pool and the big sky above me...yikes, I felt my feet rooted to the ground even though I wanted to run away, it’s a horrible sensation and hard to explain to non sufferers. I tried walking to the other end but my panic set in and I had to stay nearer where the door was...damn anxiety😢I’ve had this phobia for years and am missing out on lots of outdoor stuff, not to mention climbing volcanoes which I’d love to do😖
Tu Tu (8 months ago)
It’s so nice hearing about this fear as this is the only fear I really had. It all started when I was a kid and I had a dream I fell straight into the sky. Ever since then if I would look at the sky too long I would damn near fall on the ground 😂 my legs would turn to jelly. How I got better was I would hang upside down on a pull up bar at a park. I would look at the sky and just get comfortable with it. It was torture for the first couple times, but now I’m not nearly as scared. My fear is practically gone at this point.

I was on the beach and looking up and I got so scared and I thought I was the only one who has this but I don’t have a fear of looking down if I am high up
PinguinCrazy (11 months ago)
I too am casadastraphobic, everyone that I told that makes fun of me which is fine but noone ever took it seriously. Its quite debilitating sometimes, specially those fucking party spotlights. I'm not afraid of heights though which makes it even weirder.
neil hilton (11 months ago)
If it’s night time then I cannot possibly look up. If i do then I will have a panic attack. Simple as that. In the day is not as hard. Years ago I used to have to walk to work with an umbrella even though it wasn’t raining because of fear of looking up. Flying is so difficult. I have to be drunk to fly without having a panic attack. I went on a Ferris wheel couple weeks back. I had to get off before the doors shut because I had a panic attack. I’m going New York in December and I just know I’m gonna be a mess with all the tall buildings.
Graham Harris (11 months ago)
The first time this happened to me was about 10 years ago when I was in Chicago. At least it was the first time it was sever enough to remember. I looked up at the buildings and I had to look away. Then when I was leaving the city it was like I could see the buildings from afar but reach out and grab them. Like my mind lost track of perception. It never was strong enough for me to seriously consider but it has gotten stronger in the past couple years. I saw a hot air ballon and I wanted to look at it but I had to force myself to look at it. I was tilting my head down but squinting up for as much as I could. I tried to explain the strange feeling but no one could really grasp it. Now I’m doing an engineering co-op for a crane company and when we are out on the test pad I have to look up at cranes boom tip and I can never look up without holding something... I have to override my instincts and force myself to look up. It’s strange, I get some vertigo but the disturbing feeling is in my skull. It’s like my mind disconnects between reality and perception which makes my mind feel outside myself. I can’t really explain it, it’s the mental reaction that has a such an unfamiliar feeling, like I’m going crazy. The night doesn’t bother me because the stars on the night sky are like a canvas, my depth perception is masked. But In the day time it’s so unnerving to look up at tall structures. Anyway, thanks for sharing, now that it’s effecting me daily I had to look for something to relate to, your video helped make feel better about it .

Literally just had the same thing happen to me. I had to hold on to the stair railings in my house. I was indoors as well. Not even outside.
The Dry Chef (11 months ago)
Yeah, its pretty embarrassing sometimes, but i have found a way to at least help it go away, Just looking straight up and jumping, it's super scary at first, but each time you do it, you get better and better. You just have to train your mind in to knowing that, that wont happen. I used to get a lot of dreams where i was just sliding off the earth, so it kinda gets engraved in you, so you have to undo that, and practice looking up. :)

Reclusive Sloth (1 year ago)
I have a very mild case of this. Its not a constant phobia I have, it just comes out during times when my anxiety gets bad. I also have a fear of the ocean, because of what massive creatures it could potentially contain.
