i have a hard time flying, only because in recent years i've developed debilitating claustrophobia. i have an anti-anxiety prescription for it... but i also have a policy of never sleeping the night before i have a flight, so i can be sure to pass out the entire time.
amazingly enough, it makes long travel go by really quickly, because i'm only awake for the layovers, and even then, barely conscious and go through all the necessary motions for flight transferral in a haze...
one of these days i'm going to come to in brazil, or australia... with no wallet, phone or passport, and a bad headache.
but i haven't had a panic attack in years.
