Hypnosis and DWA

This is my husband. Cute huh? Well not so much in this picture, he sorta looks like he has been drinking. He also has a fear of flying.  Yes he has flown before, but sometime after 9\11 (although he firmly believes that is not the reason) he developed the fear.  This causes us a great many issues because I'm not a road trip kinda girl. No thanks!  Out of love I have suffered in the car for 24 hours to drive to the beach, but now that we have a child that is never going to happen.
SO for Christmas his parents got him a session with a Hypnotherapist.  I thought this was a great idea because the fear is a irrational one, he KNOWS that it's safer to fly than drive, but can't stop the physical reaction his body has.  The therapist said when she said 'cruising altitude' his whole body shook!   He did try anti-anxiety meds from a Dr and they didn't work.  Well his session was today and it went really well!  It took 3 hours and the therapist (who is WONDERFUL!) told me he was really easy to 'put under'.  He is pumped to fly now to see if it works.  Now if only he wouldn't bark everytime I cough.....

In other news we went to visit the Dallas World Aquarium which has a rainforest in it. Very cool!

    P.S. bring my sweet baby over early tomorrow morning and we'll go drive the rental car around until I have to work, ok?

  6. I don't really have a fear of flying but my fear of heights causes me to sit like a statue when flying. I have an irrational fear that if I move, I will cause the plane to drop out of the sky. I don't believe I've ever known anyone who has seen a hypnotherapist. Keep us posted.

    Cool aquarium!!

  9. That is so cool that your husband did hypnotherapy! I am scared to fly too- although I do a lot- but I get anxiety about it a good 24 hours before getting on the plane. I heard Southwest has a great program you can enroll in to help people get over their fear of flying too- but hopefully the hypnotherapy works!
