Holiday to barbados

I am off to Barbados in April, I am really looking forward to it, there is just one little thing, I'm worried about the 8 hour flight. I have been flying for years, even with panic attacks and anxiety and have always had some rescue remedy, which does take the edge off of the worrying, but this is the longest flight I have ever done and I am freaking out already. What if I have a panic attack and want to get off, what if I can't

breathe, what if there is bad turbulence, what if, what if , what if? I just can't stop worrying. I know once I am their apart

from the daily anxiety I face, I am going to enjoy myself so much, but how do I stop the worrying now before I make myself ill?
