    So if I had a fear of being tied down and molested by hot supermodels … the best therapy would be to confront my fears directly … I see…

    Nah, I already tried that…doesn’t work.

    This so reminds me of our middle daughter. Eldest took to water – and diving – in nothing flat, but it took Middle Kiddle two summers to final dive off the board, on the very last day of the season. Agnes will get there.

    Admitting to fear of being in closed-in spaces was the second mistake, Agnes. And I’m afraid that Trout won’t forget that.

    How do you know that their fantasy is to beat a person like you to death for wanting such a fantasy of them? Just a thought.

    Once you have a made a decision Agnes there is no going back!

    If that were me I would be afraid of those feet breaking on impact.

    Did that with my daughter. It actually worked – when she came out the water, she went right up the diving board and jumped off again.

    On the other hand, if you DO go back, perhaps you hadn’t REALLY made a decision yet

    I figured out quickly the way to avoid being tickled was to not respond.

    NEVER EVER push anybody off a diving board!


    Even the suggestion makes me sick to my stomach.


    I’m terrified of heights… it makes no sense, it’s irrational, blah blah blah.


    I KNOW that…. but nothing I’ve tried to overcome it has ever worked.


    It took me years to finally climb to the top of a diving board ladder,
    and stand there, shaking and sweating, attempting to beat my phobia.

    I think I was 13.


    I started to get very nauseous and dizzy, and wanted to back down the ladder…. as I had done in all previous attempts…’
    but there was a line of people climbing up,
    and the one right behind me pushed me off…


    Whereupon, I’m told, I threw up and fainted,
    fell in, and hit my arm and head on the bottom of the pool …

    I was pulled out by a lifeguard,
    and woke up in the commotion…


    I was bruised, but luckily not broken….
    with a big lump on my forehead…. in those days, nobody thought to check for a concussion….
    or say anything to the person who pushed me.


    I survived… and I “seemed to be OK”, they said…


    but my acrophobia worsened considerably.


    And I guess the bump on the head may explain a few things…. :)

    Nah, disliking being forced to do something against your will is one of the most reasonable things on the planet.
    .
    Forcing others for one’s amusement is one of the worst things people can do. It is and shall always remain the essence of bullying.
