I must say I got the idea stuck in my head to get certified. However, after hopping up on the net and doing some research, ive seen a ton of things that are easily making me want to change my mind. So, now i figure its best to get into an interactive discussion where the information is not so "one-sided". a growing list of concerns that i was hoping could be addressed are:
DCI: how often does it occur? have you had it? if so how many time and how many dives have you had.
Unexplained DCI: Again, same questions as above.
Gear Failures: Same questions.
Free Flow: Is it an easy situation to deal with?
and a general newbie question: The premise of breathing underwater and the brains "programming" to say "thats not right", is that easy to get past once you've done it a few times. Say in a pool?
I know it sounds like im A. retentative, well probably true. but I really really do want to learn to dive.
i guess i just need some re-assurances at this point.
Thanks To all
