    I’m nervous about my flight in November I have never truly been on plane because ride around airport at 9 months doesn’t count. And I have ADHD which probably helps nothing

      Miss Amanda’s world Pack lots to do in the bag you’ll bring on the plane (not your carry-on, which is put in an overhead bin- but your extra bag/backpack, etc.) I use a large tote. This is the bag you pack w/everything you’ll need on the plane. Pack things that are soothing for if you get anxious and things to keep your mind occupied. A few different options.

      Stuff to Do Ideas:
      • 1-2 paperback books/magazines (that interest you)
      • Travel book about the place you’re visiting- if you learn more about it, the trip is more interesting & you can pick what you’d like to see/do.
      • If you like art, try those “adult” coloring books w/the intricate designs & a set of colored pencils.
      • Music & movies- load up your laptop/device w/ones you want to see- don’t forget headphones.
      • Good time to catch up on homework, if in school (I always have stuff I can do for my job!)
      • If you have a fidget or something to help your ADHD, bring it. (There are lots of gadgets available now to help ADHDers; if you don’t have one, maybe do some research. Having your hands occupied can help. As long as it’s not annoying to other passengers- i.e. noisy.)

      Sleep/Relaxation:
      • If you take meds to help you relax/sleep, don’t forget them- or consider melatonin/something like that (ask a pharmacist/health food store clerk for things that help w/relaxation/sleep.) My son has ADHD & uses Melatonin. But only for a longer flight, so you don’t have to worry about being drowsy! I’m afraid of flying, so I try to sleep as much as possible!
      Along those lines, bring anything that helps you relax. I bring:
      • One of those U-shaped neck pillows (find online, in travel stores or at the airport)
      • A large scarf to use as a blanket (or thin, packable blanket)
      • Cozy, fuzzy socks cause my feet get cold (and who wants to be barefoot- eww.)
      • Wear comfy clothes- you can still look cute, just nothing tight/uncomfortable. Doesn’t have to be a track suit/pajamas (tho that’s fine if it’s how you’re comfy!)
      • Like Nadine said, layers! I wear leggings or a long skirt/maxi-dress (to keep legs warm) a tank-top & light-weight sweater I can tie around my waist. This is for a hot destination; I’m assuming since it’s summer, you’re going someplace hot? For a cold trip, I’d wear warmer leggings & a heavier sweater (w/tank or tee under) & a jacket/coat (to add an extra warm layer AND not use suitcase space for it! Can be tied around suitcase handles when not wearing.)

      Other:
      • Snacks & empty water bottle (fill up after security, as Nadine said) so you always have something to eat/drink & don’t have to wait for food service. If you buy food/drink in the airport, it’s ok to bring it on the plane. Don’t let yourself get hungry- if you’re like my son, that doesn’t help your symptoms. Eating something w/protein is best (cheese, meats, yogurt- obviously, eat soon; for packing- nuts, protein bars, etc, plus a snack w/sugar, like chocolate.)
      • GUM is a must, for ear issues caused by altitude changes & may help w/anxiety.
      • Hard candy you can suck on, like jolly ranchers
      • Chapstick & small hand lotion (planes make your skin dry)
      • Small hand sanitizer (I also bring sanitizing wipes for armrests & tray tables- eww, again.)

      I hope this is helpful. I know how ADHD can make things in life (like traveling) an extra challenge. Couple last suggestions:
      • YouTube channel called “How to ADHD”
      • Magazine called “ADDitude”
      Both of these have lots of helpful advice, tips, etc, for all things related to living w/this disorder. I’ve found both very useful; I have 2 sons w/ADD (one hyperactive type, one inattentive type.)

      Remember, if you’re having a hard time, you can ask the flight attendants for help. Be nice & just explain your situation & what you’re struggling with. They are there to help passengers in distress or who need assistance for any reason- that’s their job, so you’re not imposing. In a pinch, if you’re anxious- try drinking coffee. As you probably know, caffeine can calm you down. Good luck & have fun on your trip!

      Planes rarely crash, it does not matter at all. It is actually safer to fly then drive, and I bet you drive quite often.
