Because I am. And I hate that. It's starting to interfere with my life and it's getting ridiculous. I don't want it to pass that fear on to my child because I want her to travel and see the world (and hell, I do too!). I should also add that I'm a pretty rational person. I know statistically it's safer and all that. But, I'm still terrified.
I have a big trip coming up next year, and I know pretty soon my boss is going to ask me if I want to go for budgeting purposes. I've thought of every excuse in the book (don't want to be away from my family, too hard, not required for my position, not mandatory, etc, etc.)....but in the end, it's really just because I don't want to fly. It's embarrassing and I don't want him to mistake me not going as being lazy or uninterested in the material that will be presented there. I think he would laugh at me if I told him the truth, since he thinks nothing of flying.
Blah. I don't really know why I'm posting. I don't have a question or anything. I just had to write out how I felt. Thanks for reading.
