I would wake up in the middle of the night with my heart pounding and my mind running all over the place. I was scared with a capital 'S'.
The day of travel was highly uncomfortable. I often could not eat and my mouth would be dry as a bone. I would be in and out of the bathroom many times and I would stand anxiously waiting by my suitcase before I ever left the house.
It got so bad that I almost passed out before one trip. It was an evening flight and I had the whole day to worry about it. My fear and anxiety took over and I started to feel the world slipping out from under me. I was outside and alone and it took everything I had to get back to my apartment and call a friend to come be with me.
Do you ever feel this way? Or some version of this? How does your fear or stress with flying show up in your life?
