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 husbands and feel safe with him next to me. I am anxious, but can handle it. My flight is Sunday in 11 days and I am feeling already tense and my thoughts are "what is if I freak out up there? what if I have a panic attack when the plane is somewhere over the Atlantic? Deep inside I know that I can do it, but my thoughts are making me insecure. Can please someone tell me that I am going to be OK? What if I have someone sitting next to me who doesn't even want to speak one word ... I don't want to talk the whole flight, but someone nice next to you can make that experience more pleasant. Should I share my anxiety with the flight attendants? Maybe they can bump me up to Business ;)
Every input, help and motivation is appreciated!!
Thank you :)
