I joined the forum as Im looking for support to overcome my irrational fear of flying but I really dont know where to start anymore. One of the main reasons I took the job im in today was because i got to travel, now its my worst nightmare. I cant get through it without diazepam, alcohol, both or a panic attack. Its a real change to where I was and is stopping me seeing the rest of the world. My problems started 9 years ago and have really grown since then, I had a bad take off on a North West flight from Newark Airport that has changed me beyond belief.
The last straw for me was last October when I flew with my husband and 2 year old daughter. I drank that much brandy to "calm my nerves" that I dont remember getting off the plane, how embarassing! Then on the return leg I was terrified due to the vibration and tubulence on take off that I had a panic attack and couldnt breath. When you ask my 2 year old what mummy does on a plane she says CRY!!
Im due to head to India with work and Im dreading it and the flights are not even booked yet. Im currently trying Reiki to help me learn to relax but I know I will need further help. Although I know I need to relax I need to learn more about flying. Ive tried hypnothepahy, spent too much on that with no success whatsoever, diazepam and alcohol are not the answer I need to conquer this once and for all.
