Poland Again

I’m going to Poland! Suzanne and her hubby got me a ticket. Needless to say I’m pretty excited. I’ve been obsessively going over tour guide books and researching Poland on-line. I’ve sent Suzanne far too many emails about sights I would like to see and little travel tips I’ve picked up here and there. Alright quite honestly I went with a group of friends to see Sex and the City II last week and found myself identifying with Miranda.

Obviously I’m excited…but…at the same time I’ve also…do I dare say it? I’m having just a tad bit of anxiety. Just a touch. The teeniest tiniest bit that in all honesty seems to pick up in speed and size like a snowball down a hill when I think about it too much: I’m scared about flying over water. The five hour flight to Aruba was about my limit. And yes I’ve had a drink on the airplane and yes I do feel more relaxed, but not that much more and airplane drinks aren’t anything to write home about so to speak.

Hence my phone call to the doctor. I was all prepared to give my long-winded explanation of why I have a fear of flying over the water. Let’s just say that it’s tied in to my fear I had of wearing my wet suit in the ocean when Aunt Flow came to town. Before I could even begin the verbal diarrhea that would undoubtedly leave me feeling overexposed, she simply said that a fear of flying was quite common and wrote me a prescription. That’s it? I was glad I didn’t go into my fear because I might have left with a prescription and a referral to a psychiatrist.

In the meantime, I’ve heard from countless people that I shouldn’t be scared about crashing in the ocean because there’s never any survivors. Um..yeah.. that’s not helpful. You’re telling a person who has openly told you she has anxiety about flying that she wouldn’t survive a crash because why?

Last week when I was cycling someone repeated those idiotic words words meant to soothe and said that given the odds between crashing during our bike ride and my airplane crashing I should go with the former. Guess he was right because about 5 minutes later I completely wiped out on my bike.

Next week, my sore body and I will be boarding the airplane and popping a happy med; or as the bottle reads, “two if needed”.

A. Elliot’s Lesson Learned: 1)Anxiety over flying is common 2)The last thing someone who has a fear of flying wants to hear is statistics on survivors or therefore lack of survivors.

    Ooops. As someone who dispensed such words of wisdom at least four times yesterday, I apologize. Weirdly, it makes me feel better to know that a place crash in the water is almost guaranteed instant death. I think it is because I have more fear of the lingering around. But I apologize for adding to the anxiety.
