I apologise if this is in the wrong section, but I wonder if anyone else finds their interest in the Titanic, especially in the wreck, hampered by a phobia of deep water? I've been a Titanic enthusiast for years ever since I found a secondhand copy of Geoffrey Marcus's book, The Maiden Voyage. As a kid, I remember the wreck being discovered and got Ballard's books, etc. but I find it really hard to look at photographs of the wreck or video because of the depth at which it lies. It *really* freaks me out. I hated deep water and running water, even as a child, but it's actually got worse to the extent that I now try and avoid any pictures of the wreck itself. Even doing image searches on Google have to be done in daylight in case I inadvertently glimpse an underwater pic... Pathetic and really annoying! ETA: apparently it's called bathophobia or thalassophobia. Surely it must be pretty common?
