I'm off on my annual trip to my parents, in China. I am very very scared of flying and wondered if anyone knew that Paul Mckenna tapping technique or anything to stop me being petrified that the plane will fall out of the sky?

My MIL is scared of flying, her doctor gives her tablets to take before the flights, and she is then okay on long haul flights to Australia etc. You could try your doc?

I hate flying anyway, let alone since I became a mum! I think UK holidays are the way to go for me for a bit grin

It's interesting that you ask this as whilst I'm not bothered about it dp has become massively more afraid to the extent that we haven't been abroad as a family this year.

He has tried diazepam and some self-help stuff without success.

No, she doesn't take sleeping tablets. It's just a relaxant.
