Anxious about flight

Nurses Stress 101

Published

Friday afternoon I leave for vacation. I'm going to Ireland for a week. I have a total of four flights during that time. I'm very anxious about this.

It's not that I've never flown, or never flown over an ocean (I went to Australia three years ago...the flight to Sydney is in itself longer than all four of these upcoming flights!), I'm just...I don't know, nervous.

Maybe it's the number of crashes we've had this year, maybe it's because it's been quite a while since I last flew...I don't know.

Any calming tips?

Thanks in advance.

So, how did it go? I'm sure fine!!! My advice would be late. So,in advance for next time(if you drink) just have a glass of wine they do offer it on some plane's, pop on a movie or some music smooth flight..

Actually I regret to inform everyone that my plane crashed in the Andes and I'm presently eating the flesh of my soccer teammates. :)

Kidding. Everything was fine, although it ended up being FIVE flights and I am never flying Aer Lingus again!

That was over a year ago, and I haven't flown since...I'm itching to - where should I go next?
