First Time Flying Tomorrow, Hit My Head While Cleaning

Posted , 3 users are following.

So tomorrow is my first time ever on a plane, it's going to be 15 hours total. My anxiety is going off, I feel so sick to my stomach. Also today I was in such a rush today that I hit my head on a shelf when cleaning. It didn't fele hard but of course anxiety thinking the worse. Now my right eye feels funny. It doesn't look funny, just feels weird. Any tips for flying with Anxiety? I unfortunately don't take meds for it. I do have Amitriptyline but haven't started taking it yet. It's to prevent migraines but I heard it can be good for anxiety?

    Everyone can have anxiety during their first flight. I know. I did. What I did to lessen my anxiety is thinking that this is my first time, why not enjoy. I want to make my first flight fun and memorable. Stop thinking ang making negative thoughts. Have a leap of faith. Make adventure. It's fun! Good luck and God bless!

    Take plenty to keep you and your and your mind busy . I had my kindle and my iphone . My iphone I made sure I had some mindful apps on to use when I felt bad - this helped loads. Also like precious post try and turn your thinking into positive thoughts and think of it as a fun adventure. I also herd that flying can be safer than driving - which is a thought I often refer too . Also planes fly every day to destinations which have all been safe smile good luck and enjoy x x
