fearful flyer here, 9hr flight tomorrow - aaaa!

Jump to last reply

I love planning trips. I love visiting new places and trying new food, meeting new people, experiencing new cultures, seeing the wonders of the world. But my terrible fear of flying always threatens to ruin everything!

We have this great trip planned to Austria and Czech Republic, yet I've been fighting panic all week. Now it's less than 24 hours out and I'm literally shaking, teeth chattering, bowels rumbling, fighting the crazy thoughts in my head (mainly "I can't handle 9 straight hours on a plane!"). I've taken at least two 8+hr flights since my FoF kicked in, so I know I can do it, but my crazy side is winning right now.

We don't need another debate about drugs/alcohol vs. meditation, I just wanted to confess my insanity and get a little support from others who also love travel and can remind me why it's worth fighting through my fear. So send me some encouragement to help me through the next 48 hours, please!

Thanks so much -
m
