Nightmares

Today I am going to attempt the open water again. Last night I had a nightmare that I was in the ocean and was trying to swim but couldn’t breathe. Every time I felt I could start swimming I would not be able to take a breath of air and would have to roll on my back to get air, but then the tide would take me further out from the shore. I could hear my teammates calling my name but I couldn’t see them …. a very real sensation after I woke up. I am going to have to combat this anxiety head on I know. On the plus side I have new goggles that have my prescription built into them, so the “seeing” part is hopefully taken care of, so as I float off to the shipping lanes I will be able to spot the shore getting smaller. 🙂
