Woke up this morning feeling like a zombie. I had to take a .25mg of xanax as my face was flushing hot and I felt my fight or flight mode kick in. I have to board a plane in 5 days to a new state and don't know how im gonig to last for 5 hours. Anyone have any advice for the plane?

I too recommend using your Xanax if you need it. (though I technically have to remind you that benzos and alcohol are not a safe combination)

Bring things to keep you occupied if you can't sleep, such as reading material, crossword puzzles, downloaded apps/games, music ect...

...and if you can sleep...do it! It will pass the time by at least a couple of hours.

Practice your breathing and progressive muscle relaxation exercises. (starting now if you're rusty, so you are confident in them)

You will be okay...we are here to help you through this move.
