Ok, so I'm new, new here that is, definitely not new to being afraid of flying. In fact the last time I did fly was 19 years ago, I've been reading through some of the blogs here and while I'm impressed by the sheer bravery of you who do it even though finding it difficult/stressful etc I'm also wondering if it's only me who is such a wuss and just DOESN'T fly...?!
I haven't always feared flying, as a youngster I flew loads, had great family holidays as far as China and Africa, stupidly it was on a short flight to Portugal that I had my first panic attack and although I made it there and back in one piece I swore I wouldn't fly again and I haven't! I did used to like flying and even now my worry isn't about crashing etc I just cannot bear being closed in and not being in control or being able to get off.
I now have a husband who desperately wants a holiday not on the English riviera and a baby girl who I desperately
want to show the world, but the thought of even booking a flight makes me feel physically sick, I'm also now
anxious about being far away from home, probably because
I know it's a plane journey to get me home.
We are booking a holiday in September (it's either that or divorce!) and I'm planning a one to one with captain Keith, but having done the virgin course last year and not being able to do the flight at the end, I'm feeling even worse about it all than I did before.
Thanks for reading and well done to you all for being so inspirational!
