The drive to the airport was simpler than I thought, before I knew it I was at the large engulfing airport, I feel overwhelmed.
I get myself inside, process a bag tag to drop my luggage off and get into a line; apparently there are numerous lines and I end up in one to go to London.
Into another line I go, drop the bag, and then hit the next line; the only seat left was at the back of the plane; my vertigo is in full force; it is challenging.
I talk to another representative and he tells me another line to go to for assistance on my seat. My MS is starting to act up, too much pressure already; I start sweating and am feeling as if I am about to be sick.
I now hit the next line for security and I am in full panic mode, the amount of people around me being herded like cattle was stifling my breath. The tears started some and I grabbed my earphones to try and calm the attack down. I just wanted to run away but how do I get home.
I end up being chosen for security, they always say it’s random, unfortunately if I didn’t get chosen every time I flew I would believe them but I don’t. Into another line, another process and it is taking everything I have not to drop down on the ground and cry.
The older gentleman could tell and was asking if everything’s is good, I tell him it’s too many people for me, I need to get through. The airport is too large, he agrees.
Another line, and nothing is happening, or moving. I feel like the Hulk trying to contain himself from turning green and bursting free. If I ripped my jacket off and start into the Hulk, I am sure some lovely men in blue would take me away.
Finally, it is my turn and I have to take the buckle shoes off; my hands not working and I get through. By the time I have done all the line ups with my fellow cows, I can feel my legs slowing down and the body tightening more, the earphones are in, the classical overtaking the stories, the chatter, the constant blabbing I hear all around me. I need them to all disappear except the pilots and crew to take me home.
I eventually end up on my cane to get around, but was assisted by a couple airport ladies on my way. With a cancelled flight, a broken iPhone (it fell while away, thank god I bought insurance) and the Sherlock Holmes case of my missing chicken on my salad, I feel just numb and throbby.
I am looking forward to my own bed, and I guess it will be tomorrow. I have enjoyed a plate of wings, sharing is never an options if wings are around; I would tackle you to the ground to take them from you and the sumo size glass of wine from Argentina is a keeper.
I figured if I ordered a bottle by myself the bartender may get suspicious. This should help assist in my pain and let me sleep for the few hours I get.
My eyes are closing quickly as I couldn’t sleep in the long flight, my body and mind racing. I feel defeated, today has won this round, tomorrow I will be better.

P.S did I mention I also got lost at the airport?
