Journaling reads: I don’t fear death.  I don’t even fear pain that may be associated with death.  But I do fear the idea of drowning and suffocating.  I can swim and I am not afraid of water, but there is something about this slow way of dying that terrifies me.  I am sure I could deal with being shot or even being subjected to a natural disaster, but being under water, knowing there is a way up and out, and not being able to successfully get there, makes me feel so stressed... heart beating fast, heavy breathing, on the verge of tears, scared!
