Yep he is aware! I have told him I could tell something was wrong so I looked for an older woman and said “my husband is in the store and I am feeling really badly” and handed my son to her and fainted. Thankfully my husband heard the commotion and came running.oh heck Did not mean to post ... but I was going to ask if your son has been told this . Are you able to drive.?
Funny, I cant drive without Xanax !!!Yep he is aware! I have told him I could tell something was wrong so I looked for an older woman and said “my husband is in the store and I am feeling really badly” and handed my son to her and fainted. Thankfully my husband heard the commotion and came running.
Can I drive with Xanex? I think I could once in FL it pretty much wears off by the time you land. I haven’t had to drive while taking it but I don’t think I would try right after taking it. My fear of flying is so bad that one year my husband was at a conference in Orlando and flew back home just to fly back to Orlando with us the same day. He never left the airport in Kansas City, just got his luggage and went back on the next plane with us!
Oh that happened to me once. There was an ice storm in Dallas and we sat on the tarmac forever. It was just awful. I was all the way at the back of the plane which is the worst place for me. I couldn't see out of my window because that side of the plane was covered in ice. The other side wasn't but the people on that side had the shade down. It was awful.I get claustrophobic too on planes so I always bring a mini handheld fan. Last time I flew, we sat on the runway for de-icing which exacerbated the problem. I started feel hot and anxious and claustrophobic because I was in a window seat and a stranger was next to me so I pulled out my little handheld fan and the extra air helped to calm me down.
yes, thank you all. above here, this reminds me of things to do that i have forgotten about. and the meditation someone posted too, visualizing it. yes. thank you . !!!I've flown a bit since COVID. Try looking into different mask options to see what feels the safest and most comfortable for you. I personally prefer n95 masks because they help me feel safe, but maybe there is another well-fitting mask that works for you. If it does not interact with other medications you take (check with a doctor), you could try taking Benadryl before the flight as this should make you feel a bit drowsy for just a few hours. If you tend to have panic attacks from claustrophobia, try sensory grounding. Bring something textured to touch, something nice to smell, music to listen to, something to watch/look at.
I often deal with some anxiety on our trips. These are some of the things that I do which helps me manage it:i typically get pre trip anxiety. now with covid, it's even worse. specifically claustrophia and i have anxiety i will get claustrophia on the plane especially masked. i also get anxious over other things but once i'm in disney and land it all goes away...! any tips?
You pretty much described my planning!! Glad to know I'm not alone in all my details. Leaving three weeks from today! Monitoring these chat boards has really helped answer a lot of questions too. One thing I've learned also is to leave some room for the unplanned. I've come to terms with the fact that its ok not to have dining reservations every single day. I want my kids to feel like they have some flexibility to change their minds on which park they may want to hop to for at least 1 or 2 days of our trip. Happy planning!I often deal with some anxiety on our trips. These are some of the things that I do which helps me manage it:
