Hi everyone, I’m new here but I’m looking for some extra encouragement! I am flying for the first time since i was diagnosed with panic disorder and agoraphobia 5 years ago. I am mostly over my agoraphobia, I’ve conquered all of my biggest fears but now I’m nervous for this next step. I’m not afraid of actually flying, i just am unsure how I’ll feel stuck on a plane. I do have Ativan and i really don’t like to take it, i have anxiety taking medications. But i do at least have it if absolutely necessary. Anyway, i just would love to hear some encouraging stories or tips on how to handle anxiety in the air. I’m also nervous for how I’ll feel once i get to my destination. I’m excited but also worried I’ll panic realizing how far from home i am and how i can’t get back easily without having to go through the whole process of flying home. So any advice would be greatly appreciated!
