Thanks guys! You're great!
Update is, I'm definitely sick this morning, but so far only "cold symptoms" - mainly a sore throat - no aches/pains/exhaustion, which are the things that would spark my anxiety. I"m still looking forward to the trip, but definitely far from relaxed about it.
I like the idea of talking to the feelings like I would to a person. I'll have to try that....even though my husband and bro will probably laugh at me (ok, laugh with me, not at me).
I'll let you know how it goes.
Lots of Vitamin C....hot lemon and honey drinks..positive thoughts..have a wonderful time away...after all you deserve a break...

You sound positive about this trip, I think you'll do great. Have a great time and let us know how it goes.
I'll definitely let you know.
Thanks for the encouragement guys!
You did so well when you went on your trip, and I think you were dealing with quite a bit more than I am this weekend. You're a great inspiration!
I'm back, and it went great!! I had a really good time, and didn't feel too sick while I was gone. I had no anxiety attacks either! I can't say I was worry-free, but it never turned into that uncontrollable anxiety that causes me so much grief when it happens. I just tried to keep everything low-key and got lots of sleep so I'd have energy when I needed it. (I also drank a lot of tea
Plus, the concert was great!!
Thanks for all the encouragement!
It was Bob Dylan, with the Foo Fighters as special guests in Minneapolis. (I'm a big Foo Fighters fan....and I think my husband may be the biggest Foo Fighters fan.)
Thanks for all the support!
