I'm afraid of touching something underwater

by Amanda B.

Yep, strange as it sounds, I'm deathly afraid of touching something underwater, both in pools and in natural bodies of water. In natural waters, If I touch a rock, a bit of suspended rope, maybe some drift wood, I have panic attack and try to swim away from it as fast as I can. In pools, if anything has sunken to the pool floor, I won't even go near it unless someone is near or in the water with me.

And what's worse, It's not even if I just touch something; if I see and object underwater, I freeze up. (By the way, anyone afraid of boys?) I don't even like to go on boat rides or go fishing anymore because of this.
