Default Terrified to fly?

Hey,

I'm going on the Carnival Glory Aug. 21, and we're flying out to Orlando and back. But the thing is, I'm really terrified of flying. It's not like my first time on a plane or anything -- I travel a lot!! It's just that I've recently got this complete fear of flying, even though I know the chance of the plane crashing is like, zero. I don't want it to sabotage my vacation, so I was wondering if anyone had any advice for me?!

Sleep during the flight or bring some music to listen to. If you're really that scared, you can go to the doctor and get tranquilizers to calm you down and relax you during your flight. My aunt has to do that, and she says it works. Good luck and you'll be fine!

I live in New York City and unfortunately was affect more than I knew by 9/11. I have developed a serious fear of flying that has set off panic attacks on board as we take off. I wanted to take sleeping pills but my parents wont let me due to the fact that:

A) I'm a Scuba Diver and that would mess up my system for that day

and

B) Usually those pills mess with you and you're out the whole day or really groggy when you wake up.

So we found the best alternative is staying up all night and not sleeping until we get to the airport. Once aboard the plane I fall asleep. It's the only thing thats been saving me from panic attacks. So try staying up and sleeping before take off

Good luck!
