Talking to a couple friends the other day about SCUBA diving and how back in the day I wanted to get certified (they have theirs and we were talking about it). I told them how over the last few years I've for some reason developed a major fear of being in open water. Never had a traumatic experience, and I'll go out in a boat in the ocean for fishing, but actually getting in the water makes me completely lock up. Never used to be that way either. Years ago I would happily pitch over the side of the boat into the water and swim around enjoying myself. Now just the thought of it makes me shudder. Anyone else just spontaneously develop a fear of something for no reason?
