Just curious what your greatest fear is?
Mine is flying. I hate, HaTe, HATE to fly....hate it...
But, I have worked on calming myself in flight by hiding earphones under my hair and cranking music so loud that it drowns out the take off sounds as we launch into the air.
One year I flew to Salt Lake City for a family funeral...all to realize how afraid I was to fly...In fact, on the flight back, our plane had to make a diverted landing in Lincoln, Nebraska.....and I got off the plane (this was before 9-11).. I figured I was close enough and could hitch hike home...but I smelled something burning when we were landing and I wasn't taking any chances.
The next time I flew, the Doctor prescribed me Valuum for my fear...I had never taken Valuum so I tried it a couple weeks before I was to fly to DC. That one little pill didn't seem to do much, so I took another one....LOL...low and behold I was OUT, for a whole weekend...hahaha... Needless to say, when it came time to board that plane, I downed a few shots of Tequilla, and boarded....drunk...lol
This past summer, I went to a House of Hope conference in Florida with the Director of the group home and the office manager. The office manager is quite large and decided to have me sit BEHIND them on the flight so she wouldn't be embarrassed to sit next to anyone else and she sat next to the Director. I flew sitting by myself all the way there, all the way back. I was ticked that they wouldn't even think to ask before booking....but I survived.
Tomorrow, my husband and I fly to Florida to spend the rest of the week with my brother and his wife. He booked the flights back in December and I just trusted him when he made the arrangements.
Well, he sounded panicked when he couldn't find my email to check me in but had already checked himself in. "Why wouldn't you just send the itenerary to ONE email I thought?" But, I remained calm as he found my info and got me checked in. No biggy right? WRONG!!!!!! We aren't even sitting close to each other as he booked our flight on SOUTHWEST FRIGGIN AIRLINE!!! Oh my gosh, as if I would know that they don't make arranged seating assignments. I want to choke him I am so mad. I'd rather pay Double for a plane ticket and have arranged seating where WE are sitting together than book the cheapest damn ticket where we are seperated. someone shoot me now!!!!
