Answer for question 4506.

Do you enjoy traveling by airplane? Why or why not? What's the longest uninterrupted flight you've been on, and what did you do to pass the time?
I'm terrified of flying. I don't get jet lag after a transatlantic flight so much as PTSD. A 13 hour flight for me is pretty much a 13 hour anxiety attack during which I can rarely sleep, movies and games don't distract me. So it's a testament to how much I want to see the world that I've subjected myself to this several times to get where I wanted to go. It's gotten slightly easier over the years with prescribed medication. None of them can knock me out because of how on edge I am (and there's no comfortable position anyway), so I just sit there groggily counting down the minutes. I very much look forward to the invention of teletransportation.
