CONFRONTING
MY LIFE-LONG FEAR
OF DEATH BY DROWNING.

I HAVE ALMOST
LOST MY LIFE
ON 3 SEPARATE OCCASIONS
TO WATER BY DROWNING…

AND HAVE BEEN HAUNTED
IN MY DREAMS
BY A WATERY DEATH
CONSTANTLY.

    Wow this is quite an image!…your terror is very visible in this creation Tammera!
    My husband shares the same bone-chilling fear of water and is quite convinced he lost his life to drowning in another time…so perhaps your fear is of something in your past, not your future. (Managed to get him out in a canoe last year…he actually coped quite well!)

  • i swim…i am quite a good swimmer and i love the water…but i did almost drown at age 3 then age 5 before i knew ahow to swim…and once i knew how almost drown tryign to save mys sisters life in a public pool at age 11…and did not know that a panicked drowning person will climb on top of you to get air and puch you under…i finally managed to grab her long hair and pull her by her hair to the pool edge…..but the nightmares of all sorts persist.
