You are not alone!!

Yes, I relate to a lot of what you've said.

I never liked heights and was very uncomfortable in a carol service sitting in a church gallery, about age 10.

However, later on I developed real problems with wide open landscapes such as a wide harbour lagoon and, like you, open sea.

At one stage this seemed to have almost past away again but made a surprise return, possibly when having to deal with a very sick father with dementia.

To encourage you - it can vary day to day and a bad experience one week might be followed by a much less fearful mood, in the same place one week later!
