I share the same phobia
by: Anonymous

I am a 54 year old woman who has had that same phobia all of my life. I just recently started learning how to swim. I am still afraid of going in water too deep, for the fear of not being able to touch the bottom. When the water gets close to my neck, I actually feel pressure in my chest and a lot of anxiety. My 3 teenagers are excellent swimmers and one is even a swim instructor. I will continue this year to try and overcome this fear.
