I've always had a somewhat fear of sharks but, when I went to Florida a couple years ago my fear became more intense because of a shark warning at a beach I happened to be swimming at. Even since then really I get scared in any body of water thinking there is a shark in it. Freshwater lakes, which is impossible cause sharks can only survive in salt water. Or even pools without people in them I get scared and start thinking about sharks. I try to not think about it but when Im in the water I immediately start imagining a shark behind me and I go into panic mode and have to get out of the water. Its rather embarrassing but, i can't seem to prevent it no matter what I do.
