  13. Preston says:

    Stumbled onto this while trying to contact you about a work-related question. I wanted to comment, though, and say Congratulations. I have anxiety, diagnosed and treated and I didn’t fly for like 5 years during my 20s. I was literally on the walkway down to the airplane in San Francisco and I talked to my wife, turned around and walked out, took a train home. It was humiliating. Later when I was treated I tried it again and it went well. I now fly frequently and enjoy flying.

    So good job and keep it up. Conquering fears is part of what makes life sweet.

    Well done you! Now when’s the trans-atlantic flight happening? :D
