I returned home from America barely four weeks ago and it’s already starting to feel like a distant memory.
I had the most amazing time, but if you’ve followed my blog, you’ll know that the holiday very nearly didn’t happen! (If you haven’t already, you can catch up by reading The Darkest Days with Anxiety, Anxiety vs America and My Trip to America).
Travelling is something I have always loved to do. Whether it’s a new and exciting adventure, or just a relaxing week in the sun.
For me, holidays used to be something to look forward to… until my struggles with anxiety began.
For the average person, travelling is bound to bring stresses. But for someone like me, the worries can snowball until it feels like it’s just not worth the hassle.
This is what very nearly happened with my most recent trip to America.
But – I took control.
I’ve got another holiday coming up next month too, and it’s given me an idea for a new blog series.
I’ve decided I’m going to write about all the places I travel, including the highs and lows, the places to visit, all the usual stuff as well as the difficulties I faced and how I overcame them.
Travelling with anxiety or mental illness can be tricky but it doesn’t mean you can’t do it at all.
This is coming from someone that used to avoid even leaving the house. So if I can travel half way around the world, anyone can.
