Today my wife and I were to fly to Houston, but the flight got split up, with our first flight being a "connector flight". It was in the tiniest commercial jet there is. 2 seats on one side, 1 on the other. I got bad anxiety before the flight, despite doing the work. I was terrified boarding. I started crying as I went to my seat and had a full blown panic attack once they closed the door and announced "we are clear for departure". Thank God I had my wife to comfort me and I played music that uplifted me in my ear buds.
As we took off, knowing I was trapped, a major panic attack was about to set in and I fired off the 5-4-3-2-1 exercise for probably 20 minutes. I just kept doing it over and over. And then...
"Hey. This isn't so bad."
Whenever there was turbulence or when the plane had to circle around the airport due to delays, I knew we were in good hands. As we started our descent, I was looking out the window, easy peezy.
I am writing this review on the longer flight, 4 hours, and doing great!
With anything worth pursuing, you get what you put into it. If you're afraid of flying (or anything really) and hate that it paralyzes you, this will work for you. Give it a go.
P.S. Went to use the bathroom! :P
I only kept the stressful flight in mind, so I ended up not flying for a year. My fear really came to a head this summer, when I needed to make a short flight for a music festival I was attending with my friends. I booked the flight nearly 2 weeks beforehand, and I started having immediate anxiety the day I booked. Through the 2 weeks my anxiety kept getting worse and worse, I felt exhausted all the time plus I lost a few pounds. Eventually the night before the flight I realized I couldn't do it and I canceled it the next morning. I ended up doing an 8 hour drive to the festival.
I felt really inadequate after that and I realized that I needed to do something to get over this. I looked at a couple of options, such as therapy and taking a class. But crossed those off as being too expensive and unlikely to work. So I went online and found this book. I read it and practiced the exercises for a month and a half. Before booking another short flight to test my skills. Right before the flight I felt incredibly anxious, but asked to speak to the pilot before hand. It really helped and I was able to get through the flight there and felt even better on the way back. (Btw I took the flight with my Dad, I would strongly recommend taking the flight with someone who you trust)
I took another test flight that was 2 hours long, a few weeks after that again with my Dad. Then the final test came.
I took a SF to Boston flight for work, and went through with flying colors. On the way back there was 2 hours of turbulence, but I held it together the whole time! Now I feel a lot more comfortable with flying and am even planning a trip back to India next year.
