Back to Flying! Thanks to a friend...

I had mentioned previously that I started becoming uncomfortable flying after a bad turbulence experience some years ago. About a year ago I stopped flying altogether because it was making me extremely nervous almost similar to a panic attack. Then I started driving.... a lot. I also starting taking long bus trips. Took 9 hours to get to places where it would be only an hour of flying.

A month ago a very good friend of mine decided that she was worried about me travelling so much. She tried very hard to get me an appointment with a therapist who used EFT and some other techniques to cure phobias and even some illnesses. I had read his book earlier and tried using the techniques but, I was semi-successful.

To make a long story short, I went to just one session and I started flying again. I actually flyed for the fifth time last night. Woooohoooo! Yay Me! I am so thankful to have such a nice and thoughtful friend.

  1. That's a lot of trips! Sorry, I'm a bit lost in the timeframe, but what's the time lapse from visiting this therapist and you flying? Went anywhere fun in the 5 trips? I am hydrophobic, or at least a hydrophobic in recovery, and though I'm not actively trying to work with my fears, I wouldn't mind not having to move away from water sources. Haha.

  2. After the session he asked me if I felt like flying and I said I had a trip coming up the next day. So, he gave me his laptop and I bought my first ticket. So, I flew within two days of the theraphy. All the trips were business related so no fun trips yet. It is interesting that you have hydrophobia. I enjoy water very much and my family thinks I must have been a dolphin or something in a past life.
