    How Do You Meet Single Men Who Are Also Afraid To Fly?

    Being afraid to fly makes me also afraid I won't be able to find a man to share my life with. I haven't flown in more than 10 years. I used to have to drink alcohol to even get on a plane, and now that I don't drink anymore (and hate putting pills in my body), I can't even...

    Flying..

    More Then Ever

      I can't stand to fly anywhere. I just took a trip. It was the first time I had been on a plane in about 20 years. I was flying alone and actually scared to be going across the country to a new place for the first time. I was lucky enough to be sitting next to a young...

    Getting Married In Four Weeks And Terrified.

    Instead of a big, blown up local wedding, the boy and I are planning a destination wedding in Costa Rica next month. It's better this way, its good for the perfectionist control freak in me to relinquish control of all the details of planning a wedding. My view is that there is...

    Flying, sure, but it is only part of it. Usually I find I am telekinetic and use that to be able to fly.

    I can always fly in my dreams. It feels more realistic than being awake. It's not the wind in my face or the smell of the air, it's the way my muscles feel. There's nothing like it...
