I began having severe panic attacks when I was on vacation in Mexico last year, I ended up in a Mexican emergency room and had to be drugged to even get on the plane. Prior to that I never had any problems with traveling or flying. I LOVE to travel, its one of my favorite things to do, but now whenever I travel I begin to feel trapped and all I can think about is coming home. I become obsessed with the idea of coming home and ruin my trip. I have been on road trips since, but have not flown anywhere. I had multiple traumatic events occur all at once, so I know why the panic began, but why when I'm traveling to I feel so out of control? I am ready to begin traveling again and want to enjoy it. I have been working with a therapist and am aware of calming techniques. I go to acupuncture and do many other things to help manage my anxiety, things are much better and I do not use any form of medication. Has anyone else had anxiety about travel? How do you get over it??? How can I get back the way things were before the panic began?
