I am a real anxious flyer; When I am on the plane I get nervous, sweaty and my heart rate jacks up.
I usually get genuinely terrified when the plane takes off and when there is turbulence.
I used to ban flying and just drive wherever I needed to go, but since my fiance and I now do the snowbird thing down south, it is not exactly possible to drive all the time. It takes 16 hours to get from our northern condo to our beach house. My fiance refuses to drive when it is cheaper and faster to fly. I started out drinking heavily before and while in the flight. It wasn’t the best service in the world. Then I got a doctor to prescribe me what my fiance refers to as my all star pills. Those made me kind of loopy and relaxed. I didn’t like the plan of doping myself like a horse though. I wanted something a little more natural to take. I found online that a lot of people use cannabis to treat their anxiety. They smoke a little everyday and don’t deal with their afternoon to afternoon panic. I figured if I smoked enough before the plane I should be good to go, but getting medical marijuana for my anxiety wasn’t hard at all. Since I had a previous prescription and documentation of my anxiety, I got on the fast track to getting help. I now use a cannabis oil that I vape before the flight. They have those airport smoking lounges that I can take my vape into.
