I have a huge fear of flying but it doesn't stop me from going abroad each year.
I go through such torment from myself before and during the flight, i take valium but this doesn't have a great effect.
There are some things i do to help myself

Does anyone else have extreme anxiety when it comes to flying and what do you do to help yourself?

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Its a good thing to fight the fears. Take anxiolytics and take help of psychotherapist for complete control of fears. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps too.

Take care
