I feel a bit silly asking for prayers for this, but the more I dwell on it, the more nervous and anxious I get.

I am flying to Germany for spring break tomorrow evening. I have only been on a trans-atlantic flight two other times before. The first was 2 years ago: as the plane descended into London, something happened to my eye...it felt like it was about to explode. This is not meant to be funny, although I always laugh about it to try to lighten my anxiety over it. It started as a pinpoint migraine as we began descent, right behind my eye, and the lower we got, the more pressurized the pinpoint became, until I could barely breathe. I was gasping and crying hysterically, and everyone around me was calm as ever, attempting to help me however they could. It was the worst pain I've ever been in, I think.

Since then, it hasn't happened to that extent, but I always feel it mildly each time we descend from the high altitude, so when I feel it coming on I frantically pray and chew gum and put my depressurizing ear plugs in. My fear of this doesn't keep me from flying, but I am so scared of that happening again...any prayers anyone can spare for me tomorrow night, and then Saturday the 20th when I return, would be greatly appreciated.

I like my eye. I don't wanna lose it! :-";"xx

Thank you so much ambrosemzv! That helps tremendously. Grin

Let's see... I'm staying at the University of Augsberg (spelling?) with the Catholic Center there. My Catholic Center here at NYU hosted German Catholic students last Fall for 10 days, so they are returning the favor. Augsberg is a suburb of Munich, so that's the city where I'll be hanging out most.

I don't intend on drinking beer. It is lent after all. Wink Plus, I don't like beer. BLECH Tongue

Hi from Germany! Quick note of thanks, and to let you all know that I survived. I'm beginning to think that was just one really bad pilot who descended too quickly. Every other time I've been fine. Thank you all for your prayers though!!!
