My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
I am in need of some advise and help. I have a profound fear of flying which causes me to have a panic attack when I get on an airplane (I do not like heights). I go on-line and read alot of blah-blah-blah, (at least that's what it appears to me). My wife hit me with a bomb shell last night that we are now flying San Antonio Texas and I'm scared to death of getting on an airplane.
Is there anything recommended (from your past experiences) or advise that you can offer to me and that I could share with my doctor that I can take, do, etc... that will help me out with being on a 3-4 hour flight? And, fyi, I do not drink any alcohol any longer.
I am at a loss here but I do plan to call my doctor to see if there is anything he can prescribe to help me with this task that I have to face...
The Bell Still Rings for me,
as it does for all who truly Believe!

My problem with flying isn't fear, it is irritation. I'm glad I've largely given up the business travel I used to do. For me, absorption in other stuff -- music, movies, etc -- really helped get through it. If I was able to tune out the environment I got through it.

I don't know of what advise to give except maybe take some classes that are devoted to this issue. Check with your Dr. and see that He/She may advise. they could very possibly give you some medication to take to calm you nerves. I hope everything works out. BTW the graduation services are so cool at boot camp. You want to be feeling good during this time. You will be so proud of your son and he will be a different person than he was the last time you saw him!

I have no advice to give you because I am terrified of flying too! I have been on a plane numerous times and the more I fly the worse the fear gets but no one would notice it, I keep quiet about it. I know some who take something to calm them down but I don't want to go that route. I want to get over the fear in a natural way, if possible. Not criticizing anyone wanting to take something to calm them, I just don't want to. I know my fear is silly because it's the safest form of travel that I cannot seem to get over but I am trying to overcome it. I will fly if I have to but I just do not like it one bit!
Sorry that I am no help but wanted to post to let you know that you are not alone. I plan to stick around here for the advice that will be given to you in hopes to help myself.
