I was 7 when I Nearly Drowned During a Professional Swimming Lesson

I was a little girl in the 1960's when no one understood children could have Asperger's Syndrome and lots of anxiety. This is my story of the day, when through a series of errors, I nearly drowned on my first day of swimming lessons.

First Day of Swimming Lessons

My parents decided, as many parents do, that it was important for my brother and me to learn how to swim. So we were enrolled at the local Catholic school for swimming lessons in the school's pool. On my first day of swimming lessons, I remember my mother taking me to an office near the pool and introducing me to a nice lady and then explaining to me how to get a swimming suit and go out to the pool. She then left.

I remember the locker room as a dark, musty-smelling place. The floor was made up of lots of little tiles and a lot of the floor was wet so I had to be careful when I walked. I also remember there were a few wood benches and lots of metal lockers. I did not particularly like this musty, dark place and I was confused by all the little girls moving around. I wasn't quite sure what was going on.

The Pool was a Confusing Place

Somehow, I managed to get my suit on and followed some girls out a door to the pool. It is important to note here, no adult directed me to where I was supposed to go. My mother was with all the other parents some distance away in the bleachers. I did not like this pool area very much, either. There was not much light and it smelled funny. I later learned the funny smell was chlorine. There were lots of kids in the pool and a few adults. It was kind of noisy. There were kids lined up in different sections of the pool and some of the adults were standing a few feet apart from each other in different areas. It was not clear at all what the different groups were doing and which group I might belong in, so I just picked one.

I got in the pool and got into a line behind some other girls. I was really rather anxious because I did not know what I was supposed to do. But, I figured some one would tell me eventually. I watched as the girls ahead of me started moving their arms and legs as they splashed through the water in motion -- passing by the adults -- who would assist them in some way. I figured when the time came for my turn, I would just figure out what to do like these girls did.

Nearly Drowning

Then it was my turn. I took off into the water, but I really had no idea what I was supposed to be doing with my arms and legs. I ended up submerged a few feet above the bottom of the pool--kind of moving along slowly. I remember seeing at least a couple of adult legs standing there. It was really quite eerie submerged in the water. There was no sound or a few very muffled sounds, anyway. I instinctively held my breath, but it was getting harder to hold it so long.

Then all of a sudden, someone pulled me up out of the water and I was coughing a lot. My mother later told me that she and the other parents had been yelling for someone to pull me out of the pool. I decided I did not like swimming lessons very much.

Later Swim Lessons

In later years, my father took me to a public school pool for swimming lessons. I really think my parents had no idea how excruciating my anxiety was and how I felt I was being lead to my death-each and every Saturday of the lessons. I forced myself to participate and eventually I did learn to swim. Though to this day, more than 40 years later, I still don't particularly like to swim and if I do swim, it is always with my head above water.
