Hello all, fairly new to mumsnet but finding it most useful. Going to Florida at the end of may and suffer from panic attacks ! also recently had mirena coil fitted but still having horendous periods and contraction like cramps and due on again on the day i fly any top tips would be most appreciated as im already panicing about it .
Tell your doc about the period coinciding with the holiday - there are pills you can take which will delay your period, I've used these and have found them really useful. They're a form of H.R. I think!
Last year all my friends were listening to the Paul McKenna hypnotherapy cd and all got through their flights. One even traveled through america and at one point went on a small propeller plane over the grand canyon and before this trip she was petrified of planes.
i have not heard of this cd any idea where i can get one anythings worth a try. At least I know its just a panic attack but the thought of having a one and being stuck on plane for 9 hours and its not like i can tell them to open the window or i need to get off please ! Went to majorca last year on 3hr flight and after initial 1hr was ok and managed to read myself out of it, its just 9 hours seems so long. I cannot wait to get there it just seems like forever in between, really appreciate comments hope you dont think im mad !
She got hers from Amazon. Also I've just done a google search and found them on Tesco.com. Would do link but a bit complex for me. Don't think she suddenly developed a love of flying but found some sort of ritual or coping mechanism to deal with the fear. She would put it on everynight when got into bed. Guess anything is worth a try.
