Head to your family doctor and tell him.
I ****ing HATE flying, I've actually froze in the terminal before and missed my flight. So my doc gives me Xanax.
Last summer flew back from Dallas to Des Moines with 2 severe T-storm cells bracketing the Des Moines airport, one to the SW and one to the NE.
The pilot turned a 30-minute approach into a 5-minute PLUNGE to the runway. People around me were crying. I just smiled.
