    My brother is over from Canada and was due to spend the day with me here in Newcastle- but all the trains from London have been cancelled and he is stuck there and I am going to miss him- I haven't seen him for 18 months:cry::cry:. :needhug::needhug::needhug:

    Does anyone know of ay courses that really get you to overcome fear of flying? I have tried NLP and hypnotherapy with no success...I can't keep lett ing tis stop me from seeing him.

    aww matey! im so sorry u wont get to see ur brother. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    im not sure about the fear of flying thing. i know there are some hypnotherapists who will just charge one fee for "curing" u no matter how many times u have to go back for it to work. maybe that'd be worth looking into? at least u recognise u need to deal with this rather than just hide like most phobics do at the thought of their fear.

    this is supposed to be free but i havent read it properly. its a video course online. its free so can do no harm to try it.

    ROFL Sonkie, I think you are right.

    Hop you are not in any danger of flooding Kaz- they were showing pictures of main roads with man hole covers shooting off on the news.

    Wimbledon is on though...

    With luck my bruv will phone soon to say he is an hour away...

    Thanks for all your hugs everyone! brother made it last night at 7.30pm- just 6 hours late...but we had a lovely evening , though we had to cancel our restaurant (I was going to have apiece of fish)- they all had Indian take away instead and I had rocket salad with some flakes of fish (add a meal week for me!) We are going to meet again tonight for a quick drink and then he is off again on his travels- but it was great to see him and SIL- and they were both amazed by my weight loss- infact I was so busy basking in this that I didn't notice that my brother had shaved off his beard! Self-centred, moi!

    This whole thing has taught me that if I can tackle my weight I can tackle my fear of flying, so thanks for the links- I'm gonna do it and soon!
    Love to All !

    I really love my brother you know...he is the nicest guy, much nicer than his big sis. PLus he his drop dead gorgeous- sorry girls he is already taken!
