Get the only on-line Fear of Flying Course at premium.flyingwithoutfear.com
I had a fantastic day in September doing Keith's ground course and came away confident and enthused about flying for the first time. It did surprise me that I was the only one who hadn't flown before (that's 35 years now!) and that practically everyone on this forum seems to have done it before too.
Anyway, I've got a flight coming up next Saturday morning to Edinburgh, and 3 weeks on from the course the prospect of doing it for real is starting to ring alarm bells. I'm feeling restless at night, forgetting things at work and basically contemplating the idea of not seeing my children again!
I think the novelty of it for one thing and just the speed and energy associated with air travel as opposed to road, rail etc is affecting my ability to treat it as a normal and safe way of getting somewhere. I've also watched a lot of air crash documentaries in the past, unaware that I may be collecting images and ideas that might prevent me from tackling my fear.
I'm just wondering if anyone's got any words of wisdom or useful strategies, however simple, to help me through next Saturday and maybe enjoy my first ever flight?! Many thanks, and best wishes to you all.
