There comes in our life when we had an accident that affects our lives for long or if not forever.It happens anywhere & anytime..I for one had this experience.It's always a tradition in the family (including cousins)that during new years day,we go swimming.I was only 8 yrs old then,together with my cousins we were playing in the water,in the rubber boat when one of my cousin took frank on us & tried to moved the rubber boat,we fell down & I hit the water head first & for almost 10 minutes,my cousins thought I was just playing in the water but then they realized I was drowning already & helped me.That incident nearly took my life and it affects me greatly,I never learned to swim,I love the water but I can't stay for long as I have the tendency to panic.I have tried to overcome it but everytime I tried,I feel suffocated.Have you been in an accidents or near an accident that affects you? would you like to share it & I would really appreciate it so I will know what have you done to overcome it? Thanks & have a lovely day to all.

That's really a bad experience and what makes it more bad is,you were always having fear of drowning. I haven't had such experience like what happened to you,but i do understand about your situation. It would take time for you to overcome your fear,and i hope soon you can overcome it and will learn to swim also. Just hope for the best and also keep helping yourself to overcome your fear. no one can help you but yourself alone. Have a good day always
