Hello - anyone else afraid to fly.
I am terrified of flying. I have actually never had a bad experience while flying so I'm not sure why the fear has resonated with me for so long but I am down right petrified. I think it's awesome that you are willing to conquer this fear and show your kids that it's okay to be afraid. That right there tells me that you will be very successful in this upcoming journey. I mean think about, you are afraid, and you acknowledge that you are afraid. Yet, you are still going to board that plane with kids in hand and go to Florida to see your family. Like you said, you will not let the fear stop you from doing something. The next few weeks might be stressful but focus on how much fun you're going to have in Florida! How warm it is, how your entire family will be there, how beautiful it is going to be. I'm not sure where you're flying from but it won't be more than a few hours. Just take an Ativan, hang out with your kids, maybe buy some magazines or bring a cd player or MP3, definitely bring snacks, and enjoy the fact that you won't have to be staring down a long highway for so many hours. You can do this!!!
I'm sorry but that made me giggle a little. I have felt like that so many times. I guess thats why they call it fight or flight. Hang in there! You will do wonderfully!
LOVE LOVE LOVE! Melissa, I just laughed so hard my eyes are actually watering. Well hey, if you don't laugh at anxiety every now and then we might go nuts.
I DID IT!!!
YAY! I knew you could do it!!! Congratulations on a successful trip :)
