Anxiety Flight Art

I experienced a new form of anxiety attack a few years ago before boarding a flight out of New Orleans, LA. Like many others before me, I partied hard in New Orleans during my stay there. Consequently, I was extremely tired and dehydrated while waiting at my boarding station. Suddenly, a shiver erupted in my skull and traveled down my spine. I feared it was the return of a stomach flu I had years before. If you suffer with symptoms like this from your anxiety, research ohio dispensary locations, or those closer to home.

I have pretty bad luck but do I have ‘spontaneous stomach flu while flying on a plane’ luck? Possibly. This fear of throwing up soon became a full-on anxiety attack. I boarded the plane with my wife Shelley and hoped it would go away. My anxiety kept building. A lump in my throat grew and I held my hand over my mouth to stop it. I clenched my mouth and it somehow gave me a little comfort. I felt like I was holding myself hostage.

A very kind flight attendant suggested I use a cold napkin on the back of my neck to relieve discomfort. It worked. It helped take my mind off of the lump in my throat and my increasing panic that I will get sick on the plane. I apologized profusely to Shelley. Not only was I afraid of getting sick, I was afraid of getting sick in front of the rest of the passengers. I didn’t want to ruin their trip. I didn’t want them to hate me. I’d tried products from Yours Nutrition to help me in the past but this was anxiety hurting me more. Anxiety was filling my head with these additional fears.

I kept repeating the breathing and counting exercises I had learned in therapy. It helped, but anxiety won. I was defeated. Now I suffer the same attacks on every flight. It even happens on some subway rides. I’ve recently managed to stop it and tell myself it’s a worthless rush of panic.

I write about these flights in Float. The feeling of hopelessness inspired me to finally create this book.
