Instead of fear being the wall to overcome....you accept that there is fear and you start there. It seems that you are fearing fear. Its a combination of arousal (fear), skills and confidence...and in that equation fear is the challenge not a roadblock.
Fearing fear, hows that for being a complicated lady? haha But I think you are right.
The initial fear didn't begin from an injury, just happened and got worse with time and attempts to overcome it by trying again.
I will say I did do one boardslide I was REALLY happy with yesterday. So glad there is a photo of it
But its just that long stupid box, get over that and I can try the rainbows.

Wrathfuldeity-Ill try concentrating on breathing on Thurs.
