My husband and I are going to Hawaii for two weeks in September. The first week is business related for my husband so the expenses are paid for by his company. The second week is vacation to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Sounds like a dream - right? Well, I'm having anxiety attacks every day just thinking of the pain involved in the long trip to get there (from Ohio to Hawaii) and the trip back plus trying to do some sight seeing. The first week I won't have to worry about because I can do what I need to do to rest my back. The second week we leave Maui and go to Oahu and will do some sightseeing.
Help! I know this is a trip of a lifetime at a cost of 1/3 of what it would be without the business aspect, but I just keep dwelling on the pain.
Any suggestions how to deal with this anxiety. My husband is aware of it so at least I know he understands that part of my anxiety.
The second part is that the last vacation I took my oldest daughter was involved in a dui accident and is now a quadriplegic. She is now married and on her own but I have another daughter who is almost 24 and living at home and I'm panicking that something might happen to her when I take this trip.
