Anxiety and flying

(5 Posts)

Hi I suffer from anxiety whenever I am in enclosed spaces or can't get out quickly. I have booked a holiday in 2 months time and am terrified! Any tips for getting me through the flight? I have been to the doctors and got some valium and also seen a hypnotherapist and hope this will be enough but can anyone advise anything else?

Many thanks in advance x

Hi thanks for replying. Am thinking about doing the fear of flying course but not actually frightened of flying it's the being enclosed and not being in controlsad fingers crossed the valium works!

Thanks again xx

When did you last fly? I did a course and it helped- my main thing is enclosed spaces and not being able to get off!! It did help. Who r you going on hol with- can they support you? X
