I never had a fear of flying or gave it a second thought until 12 years ago when within about 3 months I experienced two VERY turbulent flights which really frightened me and I witnessed a small plane crash where the pilot died. I was totally traumatized. I did try flying once about a year later but I had an awful panic attack and had to breathe deeply and keep my eyes closed the whole way. It was awful and I haven't flown since. I finally have the courage to try to fly again as my family is having a reunion in England this September. When I think about the flight I feel ill. I think there are two main factors I'm afraid of: turbulence means "we're all gonna die!!!!" and the over-riding fear that stepping onto a plane at all means I'm stepping into my death. Oy ... sounds quite dire, doesn't it? I know it's an irrational fear but I feel it nonetheless. I've read books and watched videos about the sounds on aircrafts, what turbulence really means, and what to expect during flight and intellectually I understand it but it doesn't seem to help the fear or anxiety. I joined this website to see what has worked for others ... any suggestions?
