As one who loves to fly and falls asleep before take off, all I can offer you is lots of hugs and support and use your Xanax. May I suggest you keep some with you at all times during this trip. Also if you are not already, you may want to take a Xanax first thing in the morning to help your days leading up to the trip a little less stressful.
OK, I am a user.............LOL. I just believe we do what we need to do safely of course.
I am glad you feel comfortable posting what make you feel anxious and just getting it out helps defuse some of the feelings.
Fitzy you have got me through some major anticipatory anxiety in the past- the best advice you gave me was to ask myself how many of my fears actually came true (not many) and to take each personal triumph and remember it and use it for next time. You said yourself that youve flown many times and managed. just remember that- this is something you can do. I too agree that you should keep your Xanax handy and squeeze your hubby's hand. You will get through this, and you may even really enjoy yourself!
fingers crossed for smooth, happy travels,
