Fear of flying

February 1, 2010

As I get older I seem to get more concerned about flying. I know it’s safe, I know planes are built to take far more than even the worse turbulence but it doesn’t stop me gripping the seat arm as if my life depended on it at the first sign of a bump.

I never used to be like this. When I was younger I used to fly a lot and loved it. I don’t ever remember being scared or worried, I definitely don’t remember having anxiety attacks when the seat belt signs went on.

I wonder what changed?
