phobia of things under the water...

so i have this issue with things under the water... it really bothers me...especially trees under the water...sick! i get creeped out (sometimes even shake and cry)... when i see a tree under the lake/creek water...or big boulders but its just mainly the trees or those huge bush looking things. i want to cry when i peek over the boat at night because there is always some nasty looking tree under there...I love to swim, but have an intense fear of large objects in water. and the weird thing is, is that I love to go boating, but get very nervous and uncomfortable especially at night time...but at day time when i go tubing i cant fall off because i know there are billions of trees under the water...or when we stop in a cove to swim, i have to look all around the boat and if i see no trees lurking under the water i can jump in, on the other hand if there is a tree i panic. my family thinks i am crazy and my dad even threw me in one time not knowing how afraid i really was of this. i felt as if i were gonna go into shock. i was in the water alone swimming to the boat as fast as i possibly could. now i am more comfortable with people in the water with me if there is a tree but i can NOT be alone. (even with people i still panic.) i go through times when this phobia of things under the water is not so bad but as to other times i cant control how bad i freak out...
