Ugh, I've mentioned my fear of flying is getting worse as I get older, and this scares the hell out of me.
This story is heartbreaking.
same here - my fear is always heightened by stories like this. there was a pilot interviewed in the story and he said that the route was mostly over land. so, how does it go missing?
ugh uhg ugh. i feel sick when i hear about this stuff when i am about to fly (i'm flying at the end of the month). so, i tell myself that it would be HIGHLY unlikely for this to happen to my plane if it just happened today. but then i think about the people involved and it makes me feel sad that i *need* their misfortune to make my experience easier.
I seriously think the plane crash from Rio en route to Paris a few years ago re-sparked my fear. Like, how the hell did it go missing about 3 hours into the flight? I used to only worry the first 5 minutes, but I keep thinking about that story, and I'm sure I will think about this one now, too. Ugh, I hate that I'm making this tragic event all about ME!
I know all the statistics of it being so safe, blah blah blah, but I still hate the feeling of having no control. On my flight to India, I cried (quietly) lol. I'm grateful H is still married to me.
I had some turbulence on my flight yesterday. I was terrified. I am not excited to fly home on Monday.
I get so anxious now. This story isn't helping. Ugh.
I just tell myself that if my plane does go down, death will be pretty instantaneous so it will only be a couple terrifying minutes. Not that that's comforting to me at all but I keep telling myself that it is.
