Easy peasy …

Yesterday I took a flight by myself and didn’t panic. Not ONCE. This is not like me. I was on a very unpleasant flight over 20 years ago and it really stuck with me. So now when I fly I’m usually a big ball of anxiety, complete with gripping my armrests and sometimes tears. Sometimes LOTS. And it all just happens. I can’t do much to control it other than breath through it and have some wine, HA! But honestly, it’s a terrible feeling. And I feel badly for anyone who sits near me. But yesterday I did great. It all went so smoothly. I have no idea why, but I was able to rest and relax the whole time. I had a window seat, which is DEFINITELY not my favorite, so I kept the shade down most of the time. But I did peek A LOT and I actually enjoyed the views. I was so proud of me! Anyway, I don’t know if this will last for my future flights but I sure am happy that I got through yesterday without issue. Yay!

Well, I hope you all have a day that goes easy peasy!!!

  1. I was on a plane disaster this past April and know this feeling all too well! I’m currently in EMDR therapy which is helping. That’s awesome you had a successful flight without panic. If anxiety ever creeps up on you so strongly again, I highly recommend some EMDR sessions. Safe and happy travels 🙂


    • Oh wow! I don’t know why I just saw this. Thank you so much for sharing. I am so very sorry that you had that experience. I’m glad the therapy is helping. I did “OK”, on my return flight. Definitely not as good as going out, but much better than usual. I have a few more flights planned and I will say, that just the one good experience has made the thought of those much easier to handle. I pray for you to find peace in your experience and that you have continued healing. Take care.
