I used to be really scared of flying, but after becoming member here I decided to get over my fear. The first flight (After avoiding flying several years) I thought it was really hard, and didnt manage on the plane back home, I was so sure something would happen to just that plane, and when I saw the plane arrived fine back home and I was still stuck in UK, i felt so silly.. I realised I cant live like this, and have a daughter I have to fly with as she got family in UK, so I decided to get on a plane and think positive after reading a book about fear of flying, I was really scared but asked for help at the airport, I got to talk to the captain and he said he promised me i would get safe home and he wanted me to sit down and enjoy the flight. I was actually realaxing and didnt do what I normally did (worrying about EVERYTHING).. the whole flight 1,5 hour I was enjoying the flight so much, I watched the sunset and felt so safe up there I was thinking how much safer I was among the skies than at the ground. I really loved it, and when I landed I dont think I have felt this proud in my life. I was flying again 2 weeks ago , and it went really well I enjoyed the flight and was a little sad how short the flight was, and Im out flying again in 5 days and Im sooo excited:) I want to fly all time, and I feel kind of free, now I can go wherever I want to. Planned going to Spain,Uk this summer and Im so looking forward to fly :)

I really hope that you others in here that are scared of flying will get over your fear, because that day when the fear leaves, a new world open up for you there is so much to see and do in this world and its so safe to fly :)

I have to add a picture of me at airport that day I was flying, happy and excited:)
