Upcoming flight - and so nervous:(

Sunday I am on my way to Spain, and
I am not feeling as well as I hoped. I have felt very
calm, and I actually have been looking forward to show myself, that I can do this! That I can enter an airport without crying. But,
now I am not that optimistic. 
I am not crying yet. But the tears are not far away, and I am so nervous for the flight - I have got this "special feeling" in my stomach, and I just want it to go away:( 

Please, tell me that I can do it!

Thank you for answering Keith and Jim!
And, your right Keith - I will try focus on something else than "the feeling."
And thank you Jim! It's a kind of weird, but it actually helps me to hear from other fearful flyers, that everything will be okay:)

Hi Dorthe,

Hang in there!  Flying is really safe.  And those big planes that travel to places like Spain are smooth travelers.  I was a fearful flyer for seventeen years.  This site has helped a lot.  I'm not rock solid, but I'm getting better.  Spain is fantastic.  You'll love it!

ps  the feelings won't just go away so don't waste your efforts hoping for that. Do something or anything rather than hope ... you could try crying as long as it doesn't upset you.

Sure you can do it ... if you feel like crying ... have a cry. There are not  many rules about what you can and can't do ... and  crying is OK.  Giving up ...? I'm not so sure about that one. Keep trying, face your fear and you'll discover that it really is worth the effort.
