Re: Fear of flying suggestions

Get there early and booze it up hardcore in the terminal. After that, get drinks all the way over on the flight. I'm a little anxious when it comes to flying, so this helps a lot. I know it sounds silly, but it honestly helps.

Re: Fear of flying suggestions

Dang Frost.............sorry to hear about all that. If you want my advice the first thing is get rid of Kaiser! They don't know what they are doing. They don't ever treat what you got. If they try to treat it they fail. They just want you to leave their office just as fast as you arrived. Get rid of them! Trust me!

Second, boozing it up before a flight is a good idea! It will settle your nerves down a little bit. But, keep in mind that you might get cut off before you have a chance to get drunk enough. That happened to me that one time and it sucked! I would suggest having a $20 bill set aside so you can easily "tip" another bar tender, or waitress. They almost always accept tips; so don't worry!

Like I SAID, you have to STAY drunk. I wasn't suggesting ever getting sober.

Re: Fear of flying suggestions

I think the only good advice is to schedule an appointment with a psychiatrist. Sometimes it takes more than alcohol or medicine to fix an anxiety like that. Don't feel embarrassed though, it's a legit fear.

It's a legit fear that I think most people have to deal with at some point in their lives.

I've never been a huge fan myself, I once went about 20 years in between flying. Not because I was avoiding it, I just had no need to travel. Then about 10 years ago the wife and I started traveling and I had to get back on a plane. I admit I was very nervous to fly again, but it's one of those things the more you do it, the easier it gets.

Frost, I definitely think the best advice is to see a professional. They can help you get to the root of your problems and help you overcome it.

Re: Fear of flying suggestions

If you dont think you would need to fly again for a long time, i would look into alternative travel then. You might lose some days, but you will at least get there. Can work on your fear after, cuz if you dont get over flying then you will never get to visit family. I've flown overseas quite a bit and the only part i enjoy is getting off the plane and seeing who is waiting for me.

Re: Fear of flying suggestions

You might need therapy. Mainly because you'll probably make the most progress if you get one on one help.

Don't worry. If the plane crashes, you won't know it anyway
