I haven't traveled by air fearing a panic attack.
I had mild panic attacks few times even if I travel via bus / car for few hours. I control myself but sometimes the people around me notice it.
It happens when I'm in the middle of journey. Suddenly an intense urge of reaching my destination appear from nowhere. Sweating, hot flushes, chills etc for few minutes and then disappear.
I avoid long journeys even I skip company paid tours.
To my bad luck, I have to go to a desert on a 4 months project and the flight duration is 8+ hours. The nearest city to the desert is on 3 hour drive.
Please share if someone was in a similar situation and has done it because I've decided no matter what I should go there but then the long flight and staying in the desert for months come to my mind.
