I live in an apartment complex, 20 stories up.. I often hear planes near us and wonder "What if..?"
Accidents happen. A plane can hit us..
A few years ago, 2011 I think, there was an earthquake in DC and we felt it over here. It was only a tremble but I had never felt that afraid in my life until then. The building can fall and there's no way for us to get down in time; even if we did who's to say we'll get out of the danger zone in time.
Sometimes I worry about my parents being in the balcony. What if it falls or at least the railing does?
What about fires? I live on the 20th floor. It's not easy to evacuate.
In theory, what if I need 911 help? They're never gonna get up here and help me in time if I have a heart attack.
I always hated living so high up but it was usually a fear of the balcony. Now I'm just generally fearful and I can't move out yet; it's not practical.
