Hello everyone, I have suffered with anxiety for a long time now and have been on medication for the past 4 years. I dislike change and leaving my comfort zone of my house and having my family close by.
Me and my partner are having a baby after years of trying and heartache so to celebrate my partner booked a two week holiday which he has been wanting to do since we first met 8 years ago. The thing is I'm terrified of flying and even though the flight is only short the thought of it fills me with dread. I'm really nervous about going away and leaving our house and pets (dog and tortoise) and especially for two weeks. My partner doesn't understand my anxiety about this, he is so excited and can't see why anyone wouldn't want to go. I'm hoping I'll be ok once we are there and hopefully be able to enjoy it - I really want to but just can't shake this feeling. I think being pregnant is making me worry extra for the baby also although the midwife has said it will do us good and to make the most of if as now is the best time to go.
Sorry for the long post, I'm just so scared and my partner is out tonight so I'm driving myself mad! We fly out on Monday. Thanks.
