As you recall I started having really bad anticipatory anxiety earlier this year when I booked a trip for my husband and I to go see his sister in Guadalajara. You helped me get thru it, and I ended up really having a really good time. Well yesterday I booked another trip for next week. And to top it off it was a spur of the moment decision because we found the tix were really cheap. So this coming Friday we are leaving for a WEEK this time to go surprise hubby's sister. I did get some initial anxiety and took my Xanax and everything calmed down. I don't feel the least bit anxious today, only excited for the trip.
Just so proud of myself, that I am not letting this anxiety control my life. Thanks for always being there for me(us) and helping me get over this anticipatory anxiety. I am sure the therapy helped some too:)
I am refilling my rx for my Xanax just in case, but so far, so good.
