Hi all,

Well, I am down to day one before my trip. Yesterday my anxiety was through the roof..........but today I am working on a lot of self talk to get me through this........I cannot believe how wound up I get over flying........why you ask? Because I have been around it my entire life.........I know pilots.........I used to fly in the smaller planes when I was a teen up until around age 21...........but I think that might be the problem...........I am used to the planes that most people are scared to fly on......the small ones.........where you personally know the pilot and the mechanic most of the time.........so maybe that is why I fear the airlines...........I don't have that personal connection..........whatever the reason the pdoc gave me Ativan and advised me to take it in the am to replace the Xanax..........his reasoning is that Ativan does not last as long and will wear off without giving me the hangover feeling I get when I take extra Xanax.........I am going to try and wing it w/out the Ativan (I know, I'm a fool) If I can't do it I will take the Ativan..........anyone have Ativan work for them and does it wear off fast??

Better get going,

If I don't have time to get back online before my trip I will talk to you all when I return. If you don't see me on line posting for a week or so, don't worry, I will be on the beach in Mexico!

Talk to ya soon,

Kaytee:-)
