I get extremely anxious when I travel...it's been like this for 7 years now. It started when I was on a family trip and the person that was driving was doing it recklessly... I was going through severe depression and anxiety and panic attacks were new to me...actually, I hadn't been diagnosed with anxiety until after this trip.
I thought I was going to die of a heart attack because my heart was beating like crazy, the world was too big, I felt too small and I got very sick...I weighed 90lbs, I wasn't eating nor sleeping.
I finally started taking meds and I got better, but I couldn't get on a bus in my town...I didn't travel for over a year... now because of work I have to travel almost every two weeks and even though I haven't overcome my fear and traveling anxiety, I do it and take photos to help me relax and focus on other things.
If you're struggling with anxiety, it does get better, you're one tough motherfucker and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Many thanks to friends who support me and have helped me when I travel and text me back or call me to calm me down. #Thankyou for existing
