Flying sat Aug 16. Feeling nerves :/

Hello everyone, I am new to this website. I have had a severe fear of flying for the past 20 yrs. I have had to fly several times, but each time is met with severe anxiety and panic. I am going to Europe this saturday, and will be on a 10 hr flight, and will have to fly 4 more times during our vacation. I have taken on online fear of flying course, which helped when i went to Boston a couple years ago, so I repeated that. But i began feeling panic set in when thinking about flying again. So i have been doing hypnosis to possible get over this fear. Please don't tell me it is not going to work. I need to believe it will. So here i am. 5 days till take off and needing reassurance. I am feeling anxious, and repeating, Flying is safe. Turbulance is not dangerous. Take offs are routine. I do plan on taking a sleeping pill, because I need to try to sleep on the flight,  we will be losing a day, but I have never had much luck with such things because my adrenaline is too high for any of it to take. I guess I just need encouragement from people who understand what I am going though. :/

anyone reading this will be supporting you. There are lots of ways to address your fear of flying. First thing is to believe in yourself ... if you want to fix it then you can. Whether someone thinks that hypnosis will or won't work is up to you not anyone else. 

I most certainly understand what you're going thru' and my experience tells me that you'll overcome it  ... it won't be easy ... and it'll need a lot of courage BUT it will be worth it ... that's a promise.  Keith
