You know what else flies? Me. I actually enjoy flying now. Of course I knit in the plane so that's part of the enjoyment. I didn't fly for many years. people ask me what made me get on a plane again and you know what? It is odd, but once Huck died, I felt like I could fly again. I can't explain it, but shortly after that dear amazing dog died, I told Fireman I would fly again.
I took Xanax for the first few flights and it really helped me. I think having successes in the air and having the Xanax calm me down gave me confidence. When the pilot got on the overhead once and said to expect turbulence....I actually said to Firemen " I'm sure they know what they are doing."
I don't need the Xanax to fly anymore but if I get anxious it is there to take. So have you shocked yourself and conquered a fear ?
