Fear of flying 2.0.
So this is me Scary Flyer
. It turns out there's finally a training in Dallas I'm not going to be able to miss. This means either I'm going to be driving 12 hours from Denver or flying. Rationally I know that I'm safer flying than driving but I'm freaked to all holy hell and have even been considering driving instead of flying.
What I really want is some reassurance of people telling me how afraid they were to fly that overcame that fear. Barring that I'd just love some people to tell me some ways to overcome phobias in general. I plan to pull up this thread whenever I start having a panic attack since the last thread did so much to help me. I've already got some anti-anxiety meds (benzos) for the immediate issue but it's a month away and I'm occasionally overcome by anxiety freaking out over the actual details of the flight. Help me Metafilter!
Ultimately, how did you get over your fear of flying?
