Just after a minor plane mishap many years ago (a engine fire just before take off and having to exit quickly down the slide with only one of my three preschool children), I began to show signs of claustrophobia while riding in my car through a car wash!!!!. Realizing this could get worse, I rode through the car wash as often as possible, taking about two weeks to get rid of the paniky feeling (probably got rid of some of the paint on the car, too).

For some reason it (luckily) helped with planes also. How else could I visit my son and his family in Chile, my daughters in India, my brother and his family in Puerto Rico and other relatives in New York?

Being about 90% Irish (descent), I am curious about the connection also, Brian????
