I am sitting here - crying. 
I (again) thourght I was okay. The hole day I have listened to the fear of flying cd, and it made me pretty calm, and I was thinking: I really can do this!
I am traveling sunday with my husbond and two daughters (the oldest 3 years the youngest 7 months). 
Now I am just thinking, that it is so sad, that I will bring them on a plane:'(
My oldest is very much looking forward to fly. And it almost makes me even more sad - Because, I don't know if the flight will be good or bad (don't know if this makes any sense..)
Why did I order this holliday, when I know I can't be on a plane.

Hi Dorthe

If you are like other people you are full of fear now , but when you take the flight it won't be as bad as you expect. 

You will be able to fly if you are courageous enough. This isn't going to be easy but it's not going to be impossible. The fear you  are going through now will turn to pride when you discover that despite your fear that you did it.

Keep playing the CD until you can almost say it to yourself and then take those thoughts with you . Why not rip the cd to a mobile player? Then you can have it in flight to listen to.

Put away your thoughts of failure and concentrate on thinking about what you'll do if  your children are frightened or if there's turbulence. 

Rather than hope and wish for things say to yourself 'this is what i'll do' . Set yourself little targets to meet.

Remember you are not trying to become a flying wonder woman ... you're just trying to get on  the flight and back .... so be realistic. You don't have to enjoy it , you're just trying to do it. That will be an amazing achievement. Don't set your aims too high.

Keith and everyone here.
