Today on my job I got into a disagreement with my boss. He wants me to go to a training seminar in San Fran. This would involve flying.
I cannot fly. I would pass out. I have tried in the past and can’t even make it to the concourse.
And quite frankly I never did think it’d ever come up so I haven’t thought about it in over 15 years. I guess I hate the thought of being confined and not being in control.
I mean I felt bad, I had to tell the guy I’d have to quit if he made me go. Most of my coworkers were just laughing that I’d give up a free week in SF but I know there is NO WAY I’m getting on a plane. (I live in Chgo and so a bus is out of the question due to time constraints)
Has anyone else ever had to get over this fear. I know that to get over a fear you have to face it and quite frankly I could never even visualize getting on a plane. Not even for a million dollars.
BTW when I was younger I did fly. It was before I was 15 and I wasn’t afraid. I have even flown in the little 4 seaters. Not a problem. I don’t know where this came from.
