Fear of FLYING FOLLOW UP


Hi, I have been working on flying recently which has always been a HUGE fear of mine. I hate delays, flying in bad weather, the idea of being totally of control and leaning into others like the pilot, etc. to take care of me. I get totally caught up in my head and a 3 hour flight turns into be about 48 hour episode. I keep flying and keep processing my emotions but I feel like it’s getting worse. My brain is telling me I will never get over this and it feels that way because it’s getting worse, or at least my emotions feel that way. I am trying to offer myself the thought its happening just as it should, my only job is to stay connected to me but the anxiety is so overwhelming at times I want to take an anti-anxiety drug but I also want to feel like I can handle this. Any insight is appreciated.
