I made it to the airport with plenty of time to spare, but many negative thoughts were floating through my mind including every possible worst case scenario imaginable. However, I was determined to fly by myself and without any help.
So I tried to think of a few positive thoughts. I thought that security would stop me to search my luggage and take away my medicine, but that didn’t happen. I thought that I would have to make an emergency phone call to my neurologist, but that didn’t happen either. By the time that I got to the gate, I was starting to believe that this might go well.
When I got into the airplane, I started meditating almost immediately. It was difficult to maintain because there are so many interruptions on an airplane such as: the people sitting next to you or the flight attendant. I made it to my final destination without any seizures!
Success! A year ago I probably would have been calling my spouse and caregiver for help on the smallest of decisions. I flew to my final destination by myself and didn’t call anyone for help. Being dependent on people is not a bad thing. However, in my case, it had paralyzed me to the point where I was not making many decisions for myself.
What do you think?
