I have the worst anxiety known to man right now...Jack and I have this week off and had talked about driving to Myrtle Beach or something but its only like 55/60 degrees in Myrtle Beach so he decided lets do a last minute trip...I on the other hand HATE to fly ( as I have mentioned before) and am having such anxiety that I am literally sick to my stomach.
I didn't sleep at all last night and my eyes are so tired and I woke up and saw that he had put some information on my desk (haven't exactly booked the trip yet) and I started to cry - Ive been crying all day - I don't want to fly - ever - again!
I tried to appeal to him that I am just not into flying now with everything else going on...he's not buying it and wants to go away....Ive cried and everything. The only thing I didn't do was say - I'm sorry - but I WONT go...I feel bad - he works so hard all the time to provide for me and for the family we will someday have that I cant bare to tell him NO I CANT GO!
I tried to talk him into driving to FL again and getting on a 4 day cruise - Nope..a no go!
What am I going to do?


  1. I wish I could tell you something to make you not afraid but I dont have any words. I am sure people have told you that you have more of a chance of dying while driving to work then in a plane but something tells me that doesent matter. People who have a fear of flying are the same as people who fear heights or spiders. Its not rational but its still a fear. I would recommend you look into some techniques in dealing with flying anxiety. Dont you want to be able to travel to fun places with your sweet husband? I just think you should find some way to overcome your fear even if it means taking a little valium. I just think you both need a vacation before the IVF and really the relaxation could help your chances! The View had a show on a couple weeks ago where Whoopie had to overcome her fear of flying they might still have the info on how she did it on their website. Hope that helps and I hope you can still go on your trip.

  2. Meds? I don't have flying anxiety so can't relate, but maybe you can get something from the dr. I'm sure a nice warm vacation would be great pre IVF.


  3. What about going somewhere you need to fly to? Something closer with a spa and stuff so there's stuff to do even and it's still relaxing even if it isn't warm? That way you don't add extra stress/anxiety to a process that's supposed to give you a break...

  4. Oops, meant to say somewhere you DON'T need to fly to--sorry! :)

  5. Oh no! I'm so sorry - maybe you two can get away to somewhere in New England??? There's lots of beautiful places within driving distance! (I live in MA too)
    Hope everything works out!

  6. awwwww Melissa... I feel bad that you are so stressed... I think you should get blacked out drunk (I can show you how, haha) and by the time you know it, you will already be at your destination!!! haha jk!!!

    I hope it all works out for you sweetheart... whatever you decide to do, have a great time!!!
