Hi, my son of 25 has suffered with anxiety/panic attacks/depression since age 17. He copes slightly better than he used to but obviously stressful situations bring on attacks . He takes beta-blockers when he feels an attack coming. Since travelling to America over three years ago he has developed a fear of flying which really restricts him, he booked a weekend to Berlin last year but couldn't go right up till the last minute, which really affected him . He has now arranged a four day trip to The South of France which is a fairly short flight in 5 days time and now his anxiety levels are rising the closer it gets . I so hope can go,but I am fearful his anxiety will get the better of him once again. I would be grateful for any help or advice on this very frustrating matter.
