Thalassophobia

Well i have Thalassophobia, fear of the ocean. I started noticing this when we went to the beach for the first time in Mexico i was about 11 years old. We got to the beach and we all ran off the car but as soon as i got near the ocean i backed away and i started shaking and i backed away from it. I was very confused i didn't know what was going on with me. So my dad carried me into the water and then let me go. As soon as he did that i started screaming at the top of my lungs and crying i was yellimg " get me out please now!". Since then every year that we go to the beach i go near it to see what happens and as soon as i get close to it i start shaking and sweating once i even just began crying. It's the worst feeling i have ever felt in my life and i really hope i can overcome this fear and be able to swim in an ocean someday.
