VERY Nervous about flying

Well, my DH booked the flights for the whole family to take my DS to college in California. I've started to accept the fact that he is going, but now I'm having anxiety about the plane. Strong anxiety!

Our flight to and from includes 1 stop. We will be in the air for 3 hours, on the ground for 3 hours, then back in the air for 3 hours. The flights are on Delta. Not only am I nervous about flying for myself, but am worried about PA/DD. I will call with all the necessary precautions. This was the least expensive way out. To top it all off, my oldest DS wants to come back on his own before us. Another worry. He's never flown before.

Now I don't feel like I want to go anymore. Don't think I can get on that plane. I haven't flown in over 20 years. DH says, "too bad, can't refund tickets (my PA/DD and mine) once they are purchased." He says it will costs us more if I DON'T go. Great! Would they refund for medical reasons? I was prescribed something pre-flight, but what if it doesn't work?

Does anyone know the sizes of these planes?
A MD80, a Boeing 757, and 2 airbuses. I'm thinking if the planes are bigger, I might feel better. I hate those planes with the seats on each side and one aisle down the middle. Not wide enough. I need to know I could get up and walk around if I need to.

Once again, thanks for your help/support.
