I'm flying next Monday and I'm having a stressful day thinking about it. I'm terrified about flying but what I'm most worried about is my kids having to grow up without me, I've never gone away without them. I've let the 2 older ones fly away with their sports club and while I've been worried I've been able to get it into perspective but when it comes to me I just can't. I've been very good, staying calm (ish) but today it's bad. I'm wondering will I even be able to get on the plane. I have 2 flights on Monday and it's the 8.5hrs one I'm worried most about - I can handle the stress for the hour flight. I keep repeating the statistics inside my head but then I think of what could happen rather than the likelihood of it happening. HELP.
