Because of my health issues, I always have anxiety when going to new places. I always have to know where the bathrooms are and that they are in easy reach. So whenever we travel I always have to use my Xanax for a few days until I get things figured out.

For myself it is not always where I am going but the idea of leaving home, my safe zone.  I sometimes get anxious at the thought of going anywhere but have to talk my way through it.  Once I get to the destination I am usually OK.

Like Nanners, I do use my med when I start to feel this kind of anxiety coming on.
