I'm a 23 year old who is terribly afraid of water and the dark but will be conquering both my fears by scuba diving for the first time, AMA!
Since a young age, I have had these irrational fears of the dark as well as large bodies of waters.
I still wont sleep without some sort of light and I haven't been near a pool, yet alone an ocean in over 5 years!
My boyfriend is an avid swimmer and has finally gotten me to sign up for scuba diving lessons this summer! I am terrified,but its the only way to face my fears head on!
