    When I go too far under water I freak out.

    I have no idea why. Fish over my head kind of freak me out.

    I am so afraid of the idea of being deep underwater and not being able to reach the surface. Or even worse not being able to tell which way is up.  It is so terrifying i would think to be in complete darkness and not able to breathe.  I can handle swimming in the ocean...
