You feel fear because there is always a real chance of injury when leading. There's a lot of things you can do to reduce the risks - wear a helmet, use double ropes, climb within your ability, TR hard routes before leading them, have a very good belayer, take care of the rope crossing your legs, don't climb damp sandstone, etc, etc. However at some point, if you climb long enough, you are going to have a serious injury. Ankle injuries seem ubiquitous.
