I meant to write a long, explanatory post about this, but no time for that so I'll keep it short and to the point. Recently I have been having extreme anxiety problems when I travel. Obviously I never used to have this problem, but ever since Csilla was born I seem to get incredibly stressed out to the point of feeling extremely sick before (and during) air travel. Tomorrow I'm going to see my doctor about some options for me on our trip to Hungary next month.
Does anybody have any suggestions for controlling anxiety?
It's beyond any sort of mental hurdle I need to overcome. I'm thinking of taking some sort of medication and I want to find something now so I can give it a test run before we actually travel.
I completely understand if you don't want to leave a comment about this, but if you have some advice or the name of a medication that has worked well for you, please send me an email. I want to be able to take something that will calm my racing mind and nervous stomach, but not leave me feeling drowsy or drugged. Balazs will be with us too, but I need to be on my "A Game" when travelling with Csilla. I worry so much about her safety that no matter what I tell myself, I can't seem to calm down.
No need for disclaimers... I know you're not a doctor. I'm just looking for you to tell me about your own experiences with anti-anxiety medications. I have my big girl panties on, so give it to me straight!
