So, I’m a white knuckler. And a cryer, panicker… yeah. It sucks. I’m 6’1’ male in very good shape who isn’t afraid to run into burning buildings or do other things that people think is insane, but… get me on an airplane and I’m a two-year old. My wife tries to help (she’s perfectly fine on an airplane, and I don’t get that of course), but we’ve both decided since the last incident (where I demanded that we not do the last leg of a trip and instead rent a car and drive the final 450 miles… I know, insane…)
…that I need help. Have any of you who have the level of fear response that I have sought help, received it, and became well again? Been able to fly without so much as a second thought? Because I’d love to be able to do so.
Any suggestions welcome.
PS - I KNOW that flying is way safer than driving, eating, sitting, etc etc… knowing the facts is not helping with the physical symptoms.
