Many member have the fear of traveling and as Nanners said it is a form of Anticipatory Anxiety. We have a thread up now on Anticipatory Anxiety you may want to read.
CBT therapy is a wonderful therapy for many and this is another anxiety that can be overcome with hard work and the use of CBT Therapy.
I practice staying in the moment.
If you can learn to stay present in the moment then you can rapidly and gracefully change your life for the better! We are creating our futures right this very second through the thoughts and energy that we are sending out. What future are you creating for yourself if your thoughts are filled with anxiety, anger, and fear? What would your future look like if you could send out love, joy and prosperity?
Practice staying present today. Take deep breaths often. Really feel what you are doing. When you are driving in the car really focus on what you are doing, seeing and hearing. Approach your work with focus and clarity. When you are with a loved one really listen to what they are saying to you.
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
Keep talking to us as we are here to support you.

i have agoraphobia- it prevents me from living life to its fullest- travelling is off the table, as leaving the comfort zone is an instant invitation for panic. i understand. ive lived with it for 14yrs. but i cope one day at a time.
anyone finds a magic remedy, please let me know... id love to live and teach in scotland for a year- but im stuck in sydney! i want to be able to leave my hometown without irrational fear.
