I have serioussss flying anxiety.
You would think the amount that I have flown and been on a plane that I would have gotten over this by now, but it has seriously gotten so much worse.
I don't know what it is about planes that just scare the shit out of me and cause me to think I am going to die when: A. We are taking off, B. when there is any sort of turbulence and C. when we are landing.
And I am not able to make this go away. I have taken Xanax before the plane and that definitely worked, but since it was a connecting flight, I was only anxiety-free for the first trip... soooo that sucked.
It honestly has nothing to do with 9/11 because let me tell you, if someone was trying to hi-jack my plane, they would not get away with it. Ever. They would have to kill me first before I let them take down a plane! I would definitely be that passenger that would not sit back and let it happen - I dont give a shit if you have guns.... well maybe guns, because that would end pretty quickly and badly,,, but I would definitely do whatever I could.
I really think it just has to do with all of the shows about plane crashes and just thinking we are going to plummet out of the sky to the ground and then I think of what my chances are that I will live... And I usually give myself better odds then what would actually happen lol
So, I want to know, do you have anxiety when you fly? And if so, how do you get over it?
