I had all the help I needed

Last year while flying back from a weekend trip with friends, I was waiting to board the plane when I started to feel very unwell. My first thought was, “What an inconvenient time to be feeling sick. I’m minutes from getting on a flight—now is not the time for this.” My boarding group was called, and I went ahead and got on the plane.

By the time I settled into my seat, I was feeling worse. People were filling the seats around me, and I didn’t know if I could make it through the flight—if I should try to get off the plane or if they would even let me leave. I felt trapped, fearful, and alone.
