    Plane fears.

    The best flight I ever had was a direct non-stop flight from Baltimore to Cleveland. The flight was over so fast that it seemed to be over before I knew it.

    Plane fears.

    I remember a number of years ago we were flying from Baltimore to Phoenix in January. It was snowing pretty hard out and they had to de-ice the plane twice. The pilot came out and walked down the isle and looked at the wings and said we were ready to go. We took off in the storm and we were fine.
  3. The worst thing you can do is to compare your life to others. I don't do that either as it can be depressing. Try to keep a stiff upper lip and continue to move forward and think positively. That is how I try to operate, although it can be difficult at times. The key is to not to give up or quit as then you will lose.
  4. I had a boss who once told me the following saying which I have always remembered. He said, there will always be someone better off then you and someone worse off then you, so you just have to hope you are somewhere in between.
  5. Many years ago, I knew someone who was an international jet pilot for the now defunct Pan Am airlines. He was married with a wife and 2 kids. He told me that one day he was flying on an international flight in Europe and he was thinking how great his life was with a loving wife, 2 wonderful kids and a great job. Pan Am went under and he lost his job and he could not get another job which paid so well. His wife left him and took the kids. He ended up living with one set of friends for a while, then he went to another set and so on. He never fully recovered and I never found out how he ended up.
  6. That was a little over 19 years ago and I was forced to start my own small business, which has been very hard and which I would never do again.
  7. I used to work for a CPA firm as a principal of the firm, but not a partner, and I was there for 20 years. I was forced out as they claimed I was making too much money which was a bunch of bunk.
  8. I would try to get a part time job to help you get out of the problem you are in. I too had to do the same thing when I was younger.
  9. I would try to distract yourself with things you enjoy such as hobbies, spending time with friends, watching TV, etc.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy. I have flown probably over 100 times and it is the safest and fastest way to go. I take a half of a diazepam as I feel bad sometimes from motion. You could talk to your doctor to see if you can take anything to relax you a bit. You will be fine and have a safe trip and good time!!!!!!!!!!
  11. My great aunt had an enlarged heart which was diagnosed at age 49. She was given a bad prognosis and lived to only 97. Things can be done to correct problems and just because you have potential health issues does not mean you are doomed.
  12. As I have said in other posts on this forum, I know of 2 people who I knew very well who passed away from ALS. My friend's wife passed away at age 62 in December 2020 and my client's sister's husband at age 73, in December 2017. Both of their initial symptoms were slurred speech.
  13. Happy Thanksgiving to all. I had no reaction to the flu shot. My daughter who is 31, just got back from a cruise on Tuesday to the Bahama's and Florida. The ship had 2400 people on it. They announced when the ship returned, that there was a case of Covid-19 onboard. My daughter who is fully vaccinated with the Pfizer and flu shots had a quick test for Covid-19 yesterday which was negative.
  14. I got my second Pfizer shot at the end of May and I am due for my booster soon. When I got my second shot I felt washed out for a couple of days, my arm was sore and my temperature went up a tiny bit. I got my flu shot today and so far no side effects yet.
  15. According to my GI physician, the color of stools vary. Gray, white, yellow, black and red are not the right color.
