I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Between my sensory issues with wet sand and seaweed and my phobia of deeper water including baths, this was big for me. I'm okay with wet sand off the beach but not in the water. I dealt with it by putting on shoes made for the water - which I bought for traction for getting on and off the sailboat - and just accepted the seaweed. I swam and forgotten how much I'd missed it.
Going to shower off off the salt water now!
