Hi,

I am currently in Business Travel in Brazil for 2 weeks the experience has been great but can’t seem to escape the morning anxiety that is starting to become overwhelming.

I am one who has flight anxiety and gets anxious being away from my family and comfort zone so each day away seems to be getting more and more difficult.
The fear I am going to get sick and not be able to fly home to issues with the plane and not being able to make it home seem to be consuming me. I have another 6 days here and am not able to move anything up. Has anyone else experienced would be great to hear from you

It's funny I have always dealt with something similar but I have never found anyone who deals with it. When I am out of my element traveling sometimes not always but sometimes upon awakening it causes derealization style panic/anxiety...it's like an extreme scary version of being in such a deep sleep you wake up not knowing where you are(however when this happens to me I do know where I am)


None the less it sounds what you deal with us rather common. You are out of your element and away from family. Seems normal to be a bit anxious, however realize many many people do this, and eventually you will be home and with them a good again. Easier said then done but do your best to stay busy, see some things you haven't seen and before you know it you will be home.

I understand how you feel - travel is one of my big triggers, which doesn't help when family like holidays and abroad so includes flying. Strangely enough mine is not about the flight itself. One I am sat on the plane I am fine. It is the bit either end that gets to me. Same with rail travel. A counsellor once said to me it is a control thing and uncertainty around the travel - will the plane arrive, will I get a seat on the train, what if I'm late etc. I've tried to come to terms with it more by focussing on how many times it has all been fine. Best wishes and good luck

If you're still in the forum, please let us know how the trip ultimately went.
