Over the last 3 years my fear of flying has increased. I fear it all: the months of anticipation to a flight, the airport, plane, falling out of the sky etc. I was due to go to Berlin in March for my 30th birthday, then there was a technical fault on the plane which meant we were stuck in in taxi for 2 hours while they fixed it. I freaked out, all the weird noises, the caltain wandering about...it was too much so I made myself and my wife get off the plane. I ruined my birthday but more importantly I took a step back by not going through with the flight.
I have read Keiths book and Im undergoing councilling for my fear yet I still feel terrified.
I have a flight on August 28th to Lindos, its 4 hours long. I really want to go but I feel Im dealing with 2 issues now: the fear of flying and staying on the plane!
Any encouragment to smash my fear and face it head on would be helpful
