swimming tips anyone?

ok so i'm scared of the pool because, firstly i'm short so i can't touch the floor without getting myself under the water, second i'm a beginner, third i can't breath underwater (well i now that's a pretty silly thing to say but still) fourth, i just learned the basic kicking with arm pulling but i can't take breaths while swimming, you know, the right breathe left head down thing.., i can't do it, i lose focus and eventually stop kicking and i fall under.., please help me i am very scared and nervous

i think fear of water is a common thing....i've been swimming for a long long time and then when i was 13, on my grade 8 trip, me and my classmates were in the pool, dunking ppl, right? i was dunked and didn't care, but then as soon as i came up someone dunked again...i had absolutely no air so i was terrified....after that i stayed near the edge or just away from people.......i still love swimming, i wish i had a pool near me so i could get more exercise...but like nikki said, maybe just practice near the edge, or perhaps have someone watching you (in the water) just in case you go down. you could also practice holding your breath under water too...like stay near the edge, and just go under water, seeing how long you can hold your breath for....i use to do that

Ummm....you should practice on the side of the pool. So you can hold on to the edge. Sooner you can start practicing farther and farther away from the edge and in no time you will be able to swim. That is what helped me. :P
