I love water. I love to swim and it takes a lot to get me out. I love to be in pools, lakes, rivers, baths...etc. But there is one place you will never catch me......The OCEAN!!!!! I never understood the reason of this long time phobia. The horrible thoughts of drowning. But then I reason with myself and say that's crazy. You can drown in any other place. And then it happens. I was at school one day, ( I am a massage therapist), and we got a new vibro-accustic table in. I decided that I wanted to try this out. So, my instructor put on this cd called balance. Very nice. The table starts vibrating on certain notes and I can hear the music. Very relaxing. I probably had been on there for about 25 minutes and the sound of the ocean comes on. Now mind you I am super relaxed. I see myself in an old ship with other people. We are very scared. We have been told that they are not accepting Jews in this new country and that we should go back. The ship turns around and then we start sinking. I don't know what caused this to happen but all of us being in the belly of the ship and not able to get out was aweful. Then I feel myself starting to drown. I feel the water start entering my lungs. Now, remember that I am on this table, I can feel myself panic. I am taking deep breaths and telling myself that I am not drowning, that I am taking in air....But the drowning sensation is still there. Now you are probably asking yourself why doesn't she just get up from this. The answer is: I was so relaxed that I couldn't even move. I was stuck there, trying to get out of a nightmare that I had to relive again. You can't imagine how I felt after I was able to get off that table. Anyone ever have this happen to them too?
