  1. I think it is nice that Alexandra will accompany her Father. She seems like a lovely girl and is such a pretty combination of her parents. I did not know of MT's fear of long flights--that would be quite a challenge for someone in her position.

  2. Unfortunately its a phobia that is very difficult to overcome. agra-phobia is a disturbing process,HEIGHTS ! even climbing a hill is scary. Understandable. With great respect her family is lovingly behind her.xx

    1. Lucy, I think you mean Acrophobia (from the Greek: ἄκρον, ákron, meaning "peak, summit, edge")... Agraphobia means fear of sexual assault!

    2. That must be very difficult.

  3. She may have aerophobia, claustrophobia or acrophobia.

  4. agoraphobia is fear/anxiety about unknown places, the 'outside' many are housebound for years.
