For the last couple weeks, my anxiety has been off the chart. I feel fine most of the day because I am busy working but anytime I have downtime even for a little while I can feel it building. I have a lot of changes going on in every aspect of my life including an upcoming vacation (four days and only two hours flight from home) which has had my OCD and anxiety beyond what I want to deal with at this point. My therapist keeps telling me to take short trips to keep me from becoming a reclusive homebound person. I work from home and often don't leave, except to walk my dogs, for days. I get such physical problems when my anxiety comes on like throwing up, diarrhea (TMI sorry), feel faint, hot then cold, dizziness, chest pain and even lock jaw etc. I want to cancel the trip just to forget about it. I have tried all my "tricks" to clear my mind but WOW I feel like I am not going to make it to the vacation date without going bonkers. Is it worth it?
