I travel around the world with my husband, B, and want to share my coping techniques and observations with my other anxiety-ridden friends.
I think my anxiety is from a lack of control, which is only heightened when I travel. I used to feel like it was my responsibility to keep everyone happy, and therefore became a planner/director when we would travel. I don’t handle last-minute changes very well, I hate planes, and my biggest trigger is lack of exits and crowded spaces. Sounds like the perfect recipe for travel, right?
I really hope that my experiences can help you deal with your anxiety as you travel!
