    I Am Scared

    I am scared of flying other big bodies of water. I'd like to travel, but I don't like flying. If I ever have to get into a plane, I like to know that you can see land at all times. I don't feel that safe in a plane. This may sound strange as I'm a confident swimmer. I am not...

    Irrational Fear

    It's not just big bodies of water it's bodies of water I don't even know why. even like pools it's an irrational fear unless it's like a tiny, tiny kiddy pool I get really freaked out.

    Fear Is Me When Big Water Is Near!

    I get so scared when in or around big bodies of water. Especially when my dad, sister and I went canoe-ing twice: once on the Delaware River and the other time... some other place. I nearly had a heart attack before I even got into the canoe lol! I wasn't so much afraid of the...
