Everytime I think about it, my stomach gets upset.

As most of you probably remember, I had/have a fear of flying. Dh was in the Pentagon on 9/11 and for hours I didn't know if he was alive. Prior, I flew quite often. After that, I stopped.

Last year I spoke to my doctor about my fear, and she gave me something for it. In December Dh & I flew to NYC for my birthday. It was an hour flight. I did ok...I guess, if you consider holding on to dear life most of the way and saying prayers, but I did it.

FAST FORWARD...


A wonderful couple dh & I are very close friends with (more like family), are giving us a 7 day, Western Caribbean Cruise out of Miami for Christmas this year.  We have known about it for about a week or so now and dh & I am extremely excited. The plan was for us to drive to Miami to board the ship. Last night they told us they were flying all of us to Miami. While I am still extremely excited, when I think about the 2 1/2 hour flight, I get an upset stomach.

((hugs)) I had a horrible fear of flying b/c of 9/11 but flew for the first time last year--a near 4-5 hour flight all together.  I prayed--a lot and just kept my mind busy on other things and tried not to think about it.

I hope you can get past this fear and be able to enjoy your trip!

Can you get some therapy to help you deal with the fear? There is quite a bit of time before Christmas and you van work on feeling better about flying before then. Good luck.

Hope you're not going on a Carnival cruise....

I have a friend who works at the Pentagon.  I was so worried about her that day.

I agree, I'd ask the doctor if they can give you anything to help with anxiety...
