Get the only on-line Fear of Flying Course at premium.flyingwithoutfear.com
The only time I am anxious is on take off. As soon as those seat belt signs go off I'm fine!
But as soon as the plane starts to move away from the gate I panic, and I mean panic, 25 years of age and I turn into a crying baby with no regard to what anyone else on the plane thinks of me or how stupid I look at the time. I usually fly with my parents and they manage to calm me down, but this time I'm going with my younger cousin, and I'm pretty sure shes just going to laugh at me and/or record it on her phone.
On Monday I am going to speak to my doctor to see if I can get anything to calm the nerves, although I've tried this once before and it didnt really do much.
Why do some people think that statements like that are funny?
Idiots get a bigger audience than they deserve.
Bev, you are right.
There is more pressure when returning because if you can't fly ... it's a long train or boat journey home again.
When you go on holiday, although you're not completely conscious of it, if you choose not to take the flight you just lose the money upset your partner and get disappointed. It's not nice, but in your head you can say ' at least I'm safe'.
Funny old thing this fear of flying! but isn't it great when you succeed?
Hard thing is to accept that any flight is success ... you don't have to feel like I do or want to be in the Red Arrows or go wing walking. Just doing it without too much anxiety makes you a winner
