    Does anyone else feel this way?

    Is there anything good that works for fear of flying? are some planes better than others or anything?

    My DW must be the world`s worst flier even though I always remind her that the pilot and crew have a high regard for their own lives so just put your trust in them.
    Easier said than done I know.

    I don't know too much about it, but you could speak with your doctor and see if there isn't something mild s/he can give you to take the edge off the anxiety.

    Maybe an iPod with soothing music and an eye mask to give you a sense of privacy and peace?

    A glass of wine before take off? :D

    I sympathise... I suffer from severe travel anxiety. :(
    If you don't want to see your GP try natural remedies.
    I use acupressure and take Bach Rescue Remedy. And cling to DH a lot........

    Hi,

    I have just completed six hours of NLP and it is huge transformation for me! I used to hate high places such as mountains or anything that is more than one floor!

    Since NLP treatment, I went to top of building which is 4th floor and looked across Cardiff town.

    The following day I went all the way to the top of John Lewis!

    Yesterday I took my dog with my DH to the top of Caerphilly mountain and could see part of Cardiff miles away!

    I am not looking forward to flying! (maybe small part of me slightly bit worried) otherwise feel much more relaxed about it!
