Big Trip is coming up - getting nervous

Posted on August 17, 2011 at 4:22pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone,

My job is sending me to Amsterdam for training and I will extend another week in Germany to see my family and friends. I am really excited to see everybody, but this is my first long distance flight by myself (8 hours). I did a couple short distance flights by myself within the US - I can manage them, but my anxiety is always with me. But I am able to tell myself "It's only for a couple hours and then you're out here". I've been on many long distance flights with my…

In the meantime, if other people's experiences are anything to go by then you'll be fine and won't freakout at all.

Hello Diana, and welcome to this social network for people who are anxious about flying. We’re here to help you in any way that we can. You may want to just browse or you may want to join in, we don’t mind, whatever helps you is what we want you to do. I’m sorry that I’m unable to send you a personal message but administering this network and the website in addition to answering questions is very demanding of my time and I would rather greet you when you join than get behind with personal messages.
I’m here to answer any questions you have and to give you support help and encouragement. I can’t offer you any quick fix solutions or any miracle cures because there are none, despite what some people claim. We deal with all the things that make people fearful on this social network and on our website at
When you signed up as a member we asked you about the things that make you anxious so we have pages on the website that address those issues. You can find those pages on this link.
I will add more information to this page when time permits.
The most common feature of anyone trying to overcome their fear is delay. Rather than set about overcoming a fear today, most people put it off until tomorrow. Tomorrow seems a safer and better day...perhaps something will happen that makes facing the fear tomorrow easier than facing it today. And as I’m sure you know there’s no point in doing anything now, because you’re not flying yet.
Has doing nothing ever made flying easier for you?
Well anyone who has been anxious about flying for any length of time knows that the weeks and months pass and then suddenly you’re faced with a flight. It’s then too late to do anything about it. And if you do find a strategies there won’t have been much time to practice them. So we recommend that now you’ve joined us that you keep the momentum going and do something NOW. (Read the next message to see how we’ll encourage you to do something now.) Captain Keith
