If the grandchildren didn't live in Seattle, I'd be content to NEVER fly again! Honestly it stresses me so much to get to the airport and go through security that I make myself sick. This morning, we had car trouble with the rental on the way back to Seattle's airport. I was in a panic attack thinking we'd never get home. I have never experienced one before, and I hope I never do again. At least now I am safe and sound back in my house and all is well.

I suffer from anxiety as well and understand completely what you mean about flying. It is scary with all the security (for good reasons) and I hate the tine seats where everyone is squished together.

But grandchildren are worth the trip. Just think about home and grandchildren now and none of the travel parts.

Sleep well tonight in your own bed.

I am flying to Portland on Wednesday. I don't mind flying, but I hate driving. My DH won't be with me, so I have to learn to rent a car (he's already booked it online, but I know they'll try to get me to sign up for extra stuff) and drive in a big city. We'll be landing during rush hour and it will be dark before we get to our destination. I'm already nervous just thinking about it!

I know the feeling. Flying is definitely last on my list of things to do.

my anxiety levels when flying have decreased significantly. My time is mostly my own, and I don't worry about being back to school or whatever is the next thing on my list.

I just got back from a trip East to my hometown, visiting elderly aunts and attending my 40th college reunion and homecoming. 4 airports and 3 legs to the trip. I was surprised at how calm I was as I changed gates, etc.

It is so nice to have the time to let go of the busy-ness of life.

I fly to Seattle a couple of times a year. I used to feel like you do, but the more I flew, the easier it became. Sorry for you feeling like that.
