am scared to death of flying, and I never do it anymore. I used to start
dreading a plane trip a month before I was due to leave. It was an awful
feeling when that airplane door closed and I felt trapped. My heart would
really pound, and I would sweat bullets. When the airplane would start to
ascend, it just reinforced the feeling that I couldn't get out. When I
think about flying, I picture myself losing control, freaking out, and
climbing the walls, but of course I never did that. I'm not afraid of
crashing or hitting turbulence. It's just that feeling of being trapped.
Whenever I've thought about changing jobs, I've had to think, "Would I be
under pressure to fly?" These days I will only go places where I can drive
or take a train. My friends will always point out that I couldn't get off
a train traveling at high speeds either, so why don't trains bother me? I
just tell them it isn't a rational fear I can control."
