Air Travel and MS

   I am planning a trip that is going to require me to fly. It has been quite a few years since I have flown. I have not been on a plane after my diagnosis of MS. I have ridden in boats with no sea sickness symptoms. My Neuro said I should not have a problem with motion sickness. HA! We will see.
I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again.... This is what keeps going through my head:)

   Our daughter is having our first grand baby and I will be staying with her for help and support. I have packed easy and quick recipes to make while I am there.
   I will be traveling alone and my only fear is to experience anxiety and confusion. I will just keep reminding myself to take deep breaths and remember that I will be with my daughter soon.
   I will also have to take my Avonex with me. Got a letter from the doctor which is needed to take RX on plane.
   With all the excitement of traveling I will probably experience fatigue. I hope to be able to catch up on some Zzz's while flying.

   There probably won't be much time to get Zzz's once the baby arrives.
   I hope MS is kind to me and allows me to enjoy being with my daughter and new grand baby. 

   I am so looking forward to welcoming this new life into the world.
