DSC01061After one year and a half blogging , I need to share something with you people: I hate to be on a plane…or put it that way: I can’t relax “knowing that i am in the AIR” and last year 2008, I have been travelling more than 40 times (between landings and take offs)..I don’t know how I MANAGED: i know yes!! 🙂 I had the help of my aims (between workshops for hemophilia, travels to take care of my father who was ill, travels with my family for vacations -that was easier to live-) + 5 drops of an authorized ansiolytic (thanks to modern times and pharmaceutical advances):)

SO I am a psychologist but, although I can fly this year without taking my drops , sometimes i just say to myself : TODAY I AM NOT ABLE TO JUST BREATH AND SURRENDER . i BELIEVE MY FEAR IS ABOUT LOSS OF CONTROL, SINCE I AM not driving the damn thing,  and I can die. So  I HAVE TO TRUST THE STATISTICS.
