Flying

30 08 2006

I really need to call my dad and tell him I will fly out there, but I can’t. I just can’t commit to it. When I think of flying I start panicking and I want to cry. I suppose it really is the right decision right now, but I’m just terrified.

If you’re THAT terrified, then just don’t go.

I had feelings like that for THE longest time. There were ten years between when I flew to California in 2003 and the last time I’d flown before that. I constantly had dreams that I would have to be taken off the plane before it took off because I would freak out too much. Even after I went to CA, before Hawaii, I felt that way. But finally it went away. I still don’t LOVE flying, but somehow I’ve managed to let go of the panicky feeling. I guess I realized it was rather pointless; it was panicking about the unknown or something that MIGHT happen but probably would not. ((((hugs))))…hope that you can make the decision that is right for you!

You know what’s funny? I used to LOVE flying. Seriously loved it. It started changing even before I had kids and before 9/11 (and before Lost!), so I don’t know why, really, but now it’s scary to me.

In any case, letting it out in the entry last night was cathartic and maybe I can do this? I do know that with my kids around I will pull myself together and at least pretend not to be scared. I think.

I thought about calling the whole trip off, but I feel so much pressure because now so many people are excited. *shrug* I’ll just have to deal with it, yeah?

Can’t you still drive? I’m sure you will get over it if need be (well, not really, but at least appear to), but if there’s another option then take it!

The holistic mama in me suggests Rescue Remedy (a Bach Flower remedy). It’s great for taking any edge of your emotions…and you can take it as often as you like, seriously! If you need more info. let me know, I’d be happy to tell ya more!
