864: Mutilation Dilema

It's funny how deep some memories run. I was playing in the pool with a three year old today. She had on a floaty and we were in the deep end. She grabbed on to me and even though I am a strong swimmer now and an adult, inside I had such a strong memory of being five and being dragged to the bottom of the pool that I internally started panicking. I think I hid it well, but I had no idea that playing with a kid in the pool would trigger such an old bad memory!
