I hate flying and ever time I do it gets worse. I have to medicate but even then I'm usually crying and freaking out when I get on the plane.

Never been on a plane! But I'm terrified of flying. I'm claustrophobic, afraid of heights, and generally scared of being in a flying tube that could crash to earth at any moment resulting in my fiery death.
Don't fear tomorrow.

I love the flying part of it, being on the airplane, the takeoff especially. But I hate the mess of airports, checking your luggage, hoping your luggage doesn't get lost or just left behind because your plane is over capacity (had that happen once... UGH.) I also hate how it's gotten ridiculously expensive.
I haven't flown in probably seven years now. The only time I'll probably ever fly again is if I ever manage to book a vacation to Hawaii. =P

I was terrified of flying before I actually did it. I had a panic attack on the plane right before/during takeoff. Like serious "what am I doing?! I HAVE TO GET OFF THIS PLANE. OMG. LET ME OFF THE PLANE. WHY DID I THINK I COULD DO THIS." freaking out. Not kidding at all. I was flying with a friend and I grabbed his hand and I don't even really remember takeoff. I remember once we were in the air I sat up... at some point I had doubled over in my seat and I had started crying. And I remembered none of that. And he was like "okay... can I have my hand back now? Please? ow."
The second time (flying back home) was a little better. The third time I was by myself so it was a bit rough again. After that I was all good and takeoff is my favourite part now. =P

I have no problem with layovers and being in the airports. I actually enjoy that part. And I like short flights. My issue is when I get a flight without a layover and my legs start to crap and my butt hurts and I'm just ready to be off the plane!

Haha, I just had a dream that I was getting on an airplane.
I HATE them. I've seen too many movies about planes crashing, I always think the worst. But, I go on them like every year. There's no escaping it. I'm not going to drive to NY or Alaska, lol.
But funny enough, I love airports. I love traveling. I love just knowing that you're going somewhere.
Take off...oh take off is the worst. I'm pretty much squeezing the hand of whoever I'm with, or squeezing the arm rest if I'm alone.

I love flying. I love airports. I could hang around in an airport all day, and I often leave for the airport extra early for that reason.

I think it's because I feel like I have no responsibilities whatsoever there. I have my book, my knitting, or whatever else I've brought to amuse myself... get a snack, and just sit around while other people do their jobs around me. I find it really relaxing.

I hate flying. I used to love it but since having Hannah I just can't handle flying anymore.. Not sure why.

I will fly if absolutely nessecary but if I have a choice I would never set foot on an airplane gain.

Good thing we like road trips lol

I love flying - if I could fly everyday, I would.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.
