Health Benefits of Sea Swimming

I have lived with depression for many years and only now I have been able to talk about it, this is due to me taking up fitness. Sea Swimming is by far my biggest fear as I fear the deep water more than anything, and jelly fish, but the feeling I get after getting out gets me through some of my darkest days and since I have been swimming with you my fear is sliding away. I used to cry trying to get in to the water but made myself do it knowing how I feel when I get out. It was a real fight but now swimming with you I can go deep and stay in, I have cried but with joy, I am loving it, THANK YOU for making me feel safe in deep water, it's also giving me confidence in everyday things too.
