Flight approaching!!!

It's coming round to that time of year again... I am just over a week away from a flight to Grenada and I am starting to get anxious. I keep imagining take off which freaks me out!

Hi and thanks for joining us on this the internet’s biggest and most successful social network for fearful flyers.
Please don’t hesitate to ask me anything you need to know about. I will always give you honest answers, and I hope that I will be able to explain the complexities of flying in a way that is accurate, helpful and interesting to you.
Please post your stories, videos and pictures to encourage others to share your successes and to encourage them when they need support.
We’ve got a lot of help and information on our website (anxiousflyers.com) and our shop has all the help you’re ever likely to need (Book, CD, DVD, Guide, Audio Courses).

May I encourage you to face your fear as soon as possible? I know that you will think that the longer you leave addressing your fear the better it will be for you. In fact the opposite is true. When you look around the site and on this forum I can promise you that you will not uncover something that will make you more nervous than you are right now. This site is written in a way to help you to overcome your fear.
We don’t do the hearty slap on the back stuff, and we don’t do the ‘Look how easy it is to fly a plane’ angle.
We’re here to help you by explaining the truth as simply and helpfully as we can.
Best wishes

Captain Keith

Hi Karen-have you room in your suitcase for me?- I flew Virgin gatwick to Havanna last November and toured Cuba from one end to the other including an internal flight.I is a fascinating country and I hope you get to see the real Cuba and not just stay in your hotel complex .5 years ago I would never have believed I would fly such a long flight but finding Keith and his great website enabled me to gain information about flying and this, coupled with doing relaxation and deep breathing has opened up the world.
Best wishes, Elizabeth
