Traumatized by Water Slides

Day five: Day at sea

Okay, wait a minute. How did this happen? It's already our last day on board?

In cruises past, I feel a light panic come over me on my last day on board. I love to cruise so much, and I never know the next time we will get to go. So, I feel a slight urgency to have as much fun, and relax as much as possible on our final day aboard.

This day is usually spent by the water slides, on a lounge chair, under the sun.

Ever since I was little, I have been very afraid of water slides. I had a bad experience when I was probably around 7 years old. I use to love water slides until the one time when I sat up and stopped sliding, and couldn't get myself to go any further. I began to scoot myself down before somebody came flying in behind me, but it was too late. I almost made it to the end of the slide before somebody came flying behind me, their body shoving and holding me under water. It was very painful, and traumatic. I haven't been able to go on a water slide, ever since.

Each year my husband asks me to go, but I just couldn't do it. Instead, I'll be laying on a lounge chair while he slides the day away!

Water slide. Are you able to do them? Do you find them fun?

  1. I HATE waterslides! I'm sorry you had something so traumatic happen to you. That sucks! I just don't like the feeling of being out of control like that.
