So just a random question, but I am unreasonably terrified of deep water. This includes pools. I can't wear swim googles when I'm at the deep end cause I freak out. I like to swim there though, I love going swimming actually. But I freak out when I look at the deep end and can see it. I also freak out when I was canoeing in my gym class. The water was clear AND deep. I couldn't look over the edge and had to pass the padel to my friend cause I was having a moment in the canoe where I literally couldn't breath. I just can't, no matter what, deal with deep water. Even in GTA I flip out. Anyone who plays GTA 5 knows of the mission where you gotta do deep underwater, and its DARK, to get something, a chest I think? I don't know, I forgot, but I was literally scared playing that mission. I started shaking, getting nervous, every little movement made me jump, I was just not myself.
Now I am also scared of climbing up. Like I love rollercoasters and coming down, thats the fun part. But forcing myself to climb up high places scare the living hell out of me. This includes short 15 ft rock climbing, that scares me. Even climbing up high ladders make me nervous. I don't know why, considering I love roller coasters and rides where you go super high and plunge downwards.
So any clue what these fears are? I guess I might as well admit I am afraid of heights in a way, but what about the deep water one?
