hi everybody. I am going on vacation next week with my husband and two sons. We are flying out of Nashville to Ft. Lauderdale Florida, driving to Miami for 5 days. I have always hated flying, so that is a big fear in itself, but since my panic attacks started 4 months ago, I am really anxious and worried right now about being away from home. I pretty much stay home most of the time where I feel safe and this is a huge deal. My first cousin drowned last month in Gulf Shores when his family was there for vacation and he was swimming with his 3 sons and got caught in the undertow. He lives 2 hours away from me and I couldn't go to the funeral because I freaked out about being that far from home in case I had a panic attack and wouldn't know what to do. That made me feel so bad, but I didn't know what to do. Anyway, I am getting more anxious everyday thinking about being that far from home and that I might not even be able to get on the plane, or if I get that far, what if I'm there and ruin the vacation. I have xanax, do I just take it and hope for the best???

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
