In less than 48 hours I will attend the
cattle call line for boarding my flight to San Antonio. I thought I had scheduled the flight to take off at 8:20, but it's 7:20. Oh, that's am, not pm. Yesterday Romeo and I had a little pillow talk and discussed when I need to be at the airport. And asked me if I wanted to be there 2 hours early. I strongly stated one hour before is enough for me, thank you very much. The sad part is he was serious. Sheesh.
I may not have mentioned that I have suffered from motion sickness since......forever. The first time I went to a dental convention with my previous employer, I became so sick I thought I might never recover. It was truly horrible. They even took me from the plane to our van in a wheelchair. And yes, I still feel sorry for the person I was sitting next to when I had to use the barf bag (which I always check to make sure I have one when I fly....sad huh?). I haven't done it since then, which was nearly 18 years ago. I now take meclizine starting 24 hours prior to the flight, and make sure I drink some ginger ale (the only thing I drink on an airplane). I don't anticipate getting sick. But, what is interesting is that I now have injectible migrane medication, which would help me if I do get sick. The tricky part is that it is injectable, and because I don't want to spend more time than necessary in the security check, it looks like I will put it in my checked baggage. I tried calling the airline, then they directed me to the TSA...where I was left on hold for over 20 minutes and hung up in frustration. The box doesn't have a printed Rx on it, and although I have the print out of the prescription, I worried that it would be confiscated, although it probably wouldn't....just the idea of losing $85 of medication makes me want to cry. Although certain none of this worry is necessary, it just gives my life a sort of preverted meaning....lol.
Stupidly, I have to go to Phoenix from Albuquerque to get to San Antonio. Once I had to fly to Las Vegas from San Antonio to get to Albuquerque. And yet it sure beats 10 hours of driving.
