I hope your enjoying this bit of sun?
I (now regretting) booked a holiday to Jamaica and have a wonderful 9 hour flight coming up. Since I booked I've worried daily over whether I should have and how I will cope but just feel as my symptoms are getting worse by the month, and despite only being 23 this may be my last flight (or at least longer than an hour!) which is a shame as I had to give up my job as a travel agent 2 years ago due to stress and fibro flare ups.
I went to my GP and he has given me some diazepam to relax me and hopefully not cause a flare up as when I last flew to Mexico 3 years ago I actually got threatened to be arrested (!) the air stewardess' were absolutely dreadful and after being delayed on the runway for 2 hours I refused to sit down as my legs had swollen to a pulp, I could barely move and was teary eyed from pain - yet it was acceptable to tell me the police would be waiting for me as I was acting drunk and disorderly (I don't drink alcohol it was my tablets/symptoms making me appear that way but would they believe me!) on the return flight I was made to sign a form stating I would not drink anything alcoholic and behave as I had on the way out, after crying and explaining to the captain what had happened I was called a liar and told I should be grateful they let me back on - imagine that in Mexico how scary it was! I complained when I got back and got a mere 'sorry'. It was so embarrassing and I was made to feel so stupid but after 3 years f boycotting holiday's from the humiliation, I decided enough was enough and booked Jamaica.
I'm hoping the diazepam knocks me out, and I have a friend that is going to speak on my behalf so I don't even need to communicate with these horrid people and have the same as last time happen but I just wondered if anyone has any ideas on how to get comfy/things to take etc.?
Sorry for my moaning yet again, but god it feels good to let it out!
