@blingqueen023  I agree on the car driving part; I have lived in MoCo for 71 years, it used to be safe but no more!

@Mersha ... I’m in PG ...  I have to admit those “S” curves seem like the Daytona 500 ...  don’t enjoy those either ... but the roads by Tysons Corner are no easy drive  !!  I DONT like the Bay Bridge and heights.  My biggest fear is I’m on top of a tall building with no railings or walls ... and I don’t like alligators ...  so I guess my greatest fear is crawling on the top of a building covered in alligators ...  ugh ... I’m gonna watch a movie ...  BUT nothing keeps me from doing what I need to ...  thank you Jesus !! 

 


@Graciesmom  Hello my neighbor!!  Oh, that Bay Bridge is another one that will scare me to death....I hate it.  There seems to be so little between the car and water.  The worst is when you are stuck there during a busy time with an accident or broken down vehicle.

 

I have seen people do things driving on the Beltway that you cannot believe.  Yes, those "S" curves....ugh!  I am always afraid trucks hauling things will have something fall off the back and land in the highway.  I have seen that way too many times.

Several things that have already been mentioned make me uncomfortable and downright fearful. One that I can't shake is my fear of drowning. I can't swim so that makes it worse.

I am a person that travels frequently, so it's not the plane ride. It's the thought of the plane crashing into the ocean. I am convinced that for the first time in my life before my trip I will have to visit the doctor for some sot of anxiety medication. 


@icezeus    Since you have a year until your trip, go to the YWCA  or a local gym that has a pool  and take some swim lessons for adults.... it would be good for you. They probably have both priviate and group classes.  It would be a wonderful thing to accomplish and would make your fear of drowning and flying over the ocean less tramatic for you I would think. 

 

I was very forturate as a child that my parents made me take swim lessons as a very young child. I grew up after that swimming my entire life in the lake by my home in the summer.   I never realized that people did not know how to swim until I had a girlfriend in school who told me she could not swim.  I just thought everyone could swim.  


@SeaMaiden

Thank you for the helpful advice. One of my good GF's has suggested this to me in the past but I never seem to make time. Perhaps, i will look into it this summer.

diabetic pressure ulcers

 

being bitten by a snake

 

Water; can’t swim, and won’t cross long bridges over large bodies of it, nor go thru tunnels.   I have no interest in being on a cruise ship.   

 

Flying

 

I am uncomfortable with total darkness outdoors, especially when there’s no power.   I have 2 outside lights and my brother has 1, so our properties are usually well lit after dark.

@icezeus  You are welcome🙂  Swimming is a lot like riding a bike.....you start out feeling unsure of yourself....and the suddenly your body and mind just GETS IT....AND you will be floating and such without a thought!  It is like a switch turns on!  I hope you do this❤️
