Take the Challenge

The aftermath of any sort of a disability creates new and challenging obstacles. I am preparing to fly for the first time myself when I return from Florida. I am almost thirty and I have much insecurity regarding the fact that I have never flown myself. I am positive that there are many individuals who are far younger than I am who have routinely have flown by themselves. A part of me feels as though I have fallen back into
I was actually very hesitant to put this in writing as I am embarrassed to admit my anxiety regarding a typical method of travel. I have flown many a time; this will be the first time that I will take the journey myself. People at work have told me of relatives who have dementia or Alzheimer’s who the airlines have made special arrangements for to insure that those passengers are able to fly regardless of their anxiety or mental status. My mental status is excellent; my nerves cause me to not function at my full potential. I would love to hear who else shares this anxiety post brain injury.  I was pleased to hear that I am not alone. There are many people who do not enjoy traveling themselves. It is bizarre to have achieved much independence yet always have a bit of insecurity regarding my dependence on my parents. I would greatly enjoy reading which individuals have been injured and have conquered traveling by his/her self.

I recall the same sort of feeling the first time I drove down the parkway to a facility that I was not familiar with. Now I am able to drive pretty routinely on the parkway to the various facilities. I am positive that once I get one flight myself under my belt I will be okay. I am not sure that I will choose to fly myself often even after I have mastered the task. It will be good for my confidence to achieve this seemingly routine mode of transportation. The airports I know will be fully prepared to help me. I understand that there are many times that people are willing to assist those in need; the individual has to be willing to accept the assistance. It is always a challenge to swallow your pride and acknowledge that indeed (even though I am just shy of 30) this will be the first time that I am attempting to fly myself. I am sure that once I return from my first flight by myself I will feel so much better to have my initial voyage under my belt. Most people that I know do not typically choose to fly by themselves unless it is for business travel. Thankfully I do not travel for work, so I am hoping that I will not have to travel singularly very often. I hope you all have an excellent New Year. I will write more in 2015!
