    I know that disneyworld is at the end of the flight but am terrified of the actual flight :(

    Does anyone know if the doctor can help with this? tablets or something or even should I try a hypnotherapist before we go

    friends have said just take a sleeping tablet but I read that if the airline thinks youve done this they wont let you fly in case theres an emergency and youre too sleepy to get out :rolleyes008:

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    If you have time before your trip, you might want to check with your local airport to see if they have a program available to help you. A commercial airline pilot founded a company here that takes people through preparation through the actual flight. And graduation includes a real flight!

    The idea is if you understand the process, you will be less afraid.

    Beyond that, your doctor might be able to prescribe something to help you relax, but not actually sleep. Not sure what that might be, but it's worth asking!

    Do see your doctor. Depending on the severity of your anxiety, any health conditions you may already have, your general health, ect. there are a number of options for the two of you to discuss.
