Found a cure for my anxiety (pity isn't a sustainable longterm one)

Hi everyone,

I think last time I wrote on here was prob just over 9 weeks ago when I 1st landed in Oz. I'm currently travelling Oz & Nz on my lonesome. I am now in Nz, Guess what I have not felt anxious once! Which confirms what I already knew it is my life back home that triggers my anxiety.

The thought I'm not good enough at work & having to deal with my alcoholic mentally ill parents.

Part of me wishes I could stay away for ever but I have a fiancée, friends & pets I love very much back home.

Just enjoying the feeling of inner peace & actually eating! Normally I have so many butterflies in my tummy i have hardly any room left for food. Where as here I'm going in for second helpings every time!

I have been writing down thoughts & ideas which will hopefully help when I get back.

I have another 3 weeks until I have to face reality! I suppose at least the nights are getting lighter : D.

Can highly recommend some alone reflective time away from the day to day.

Good for you doing this on your own.
