have to take a long haul flight alone soon, a 4 hour flight first then a stop in a busy airport and then 11 hours..

before my anxiety ever came along, i had a fear of flying (altough probably not as bad)

my anxiety at the moment is wel under control. its been almost two years since i was at my worst.

anybody any tricks, tips advice for getting through it??

Calk your primary doctor and explain your fear of flying  If yyou've ever taken an antianxietydrug before, it will be helpful to tell him/her (so they don't fear an allergic reaction), and ask iif he'd be willing to prescribe just 4-5 pills to get you through the trip.  Most MD's have no problem prescribing a small number of pills for a specific situation.  Still, the food will suck lol

Just talk to your doctor; you'll probably get something for anxiety to take as needed.

Just don't do what this guy did and come up with a plot to see your doctor, then casually mention a fear of flying in hopes of getting some Xanax:
