I know this may seem silly to many of you who fly a lot, but here goes. My family and I are planning on flying from Michigan to San Diego next spring for a family vacation. I have only flown once in my life, and that was 20 years ago. Even though I know that thousands of flights around the world make it to their destinations safely every day, I am really nervous about this trip, to the point where if I wake up in the middle of the night and think about it I get panicked. I just keep thinking that if the plane crashes then our family of four will all die and it scares me to death. I have no problem with getting on the interstate and driving for hours, so I don't know why I'm so terrified of flying. Can anyone reassure me please?
