I was looking at my friends' online photo album. They're living in Guam and have just returned there from their trips to New Zealand and Austarlia. They got to dive on the Great Barrier Reef three times. In NZ, they saw more beautiful sights. Guam has lovely places as well....
Don't get me wrong. I am VERY happy for them and don't begrudge their joy! My problem is that as I look at their photos, I am sad that I'll never get to go anywhere interesting. I haven't been able to leave my hometown since 1988. This fear is ingrained. And since that time, my mom has become fearful to travel as well! My fear seemed to rub off on her! UGH!!
Even to go across the bridge to the beach side of our town is something that makes me a little uneasy, much less going anywhere far.
I guess I'm feeling down about al the things I've missed out on because of my phobias. Oh well, I know that I'm better off than many because some can't even leave their houses.
