|No, It was a bit of a scare but not too terribly frightening as we both knew that she wouldn't have any ill effects from missing the safety stop. We had come up so slowly we knew she would be OK. It was more the loss of control. Her panic was really more of a struggle to get back control of the situation when she realized that she couldn't she stopped struggling and just let her self surface. It was that feeling of having no control that really got to her. I think she liked diving but for her it was one of those things where you try something like it but aren't really interested that much in it. I would always do a few dives (if you could call them dives) at the local pool when I was getting ready to go to the Bahamas just to check out my gear and get myself back underwater before I threw myself off the back of a boat. One year I took advantage of a Peak Performance Buoyancy Class. It was a good way to check everything out and gain some valuable training. Actually it in someways started a new chapter in my diving. I needed more dive time than I was getting so one year I found a group of divers from the local dive shop that were heading out to Grand Turk.
