Anonymous asked: Hey i really need some help :/ Next week me and my family are going on holiday, and the journey is like... 16 hours or more or something. But... i hate planes, and i hate flying. Last time i was on a plane i had a panic attack and was all over the place, and this was only for a 1 hour flight with my school. Any tips? My mum said i'm too young to take sleeping pills :/ I don't think i can last 16 hours
All I can say is trust yourself and what you know you need to do in order to cope, nothings impossible and you can do it. Just be gentle on yourself- treat yourself like a friend and ask yourself what will help you get through it.
Also guys please don’t send me anon asks and expect a response. This is the first anon in a (technical term:) shitload that I’ve ever answered, I don’t wanna flood the site with them so I prefer to answer privately. Please remember though that I’m not a doctor or have any qualification for that matter- there is a FAQ page for a reason, I just can’t answer every querie as my life does not revolve around answering all the asks this blog gets. Please remember our helpful friends google, your school or workplaces free mental health nurses, and of course your own friends and family.
