Being Sick!

Day before yesterday I had my first flight experience. I forgot my fear as suddenly we took to the air and I could see the lighted city; but then suddenly I found it difficult to breathe, felt giddy, hands began getting stiff and I thought I will faint. I wanted to shout 'BRING THE PLANE DOWN' (quite like in the movie where Kajol shouts and brings the plane down) I don't know if it was totally air sickness or was it also spiced up with what could be a panic attack. I was given some hot drink.

I had the experience again as the plane started to descend and also puked. When we finally got down from the plane I felt the same as I do when I come out of water after a long swim.

But thinking back I felt that the residual feel of having suddenly lost control of my body is a THRILL.

The experience of  - "wow" even when 'I' am fine; my body can go totally and SUDDENLY berserk. To know that there can be 'mechanical malfunctions' due to sudden environmental change, though the 'I' was fine despite the changed environment and totally lost in the scene below!

So what I think about being sick is that " actually 'I' am never really sick, even though the body can malfunction and get sick"! but of course I did let it effect me in a way that I forgot the view and was totally concerned about getting the body back in control. Once down the plane I regretted not having watched how the sea looked.!!!!

I'm glad that you did not scream out like what they did in the movie :)
I think it's quite normal to feel scared when taking a flight for the first time.

And btw, thank you so much for prompting me to install the Followers gadget in my blog. I felt a bit silly not to have it all the while :)
