It's been a long time since I've posted, so long in fact I had to make a new profile, because I cannot remember my old password, and of course have changed email addresses since I visited last....ANYWAY
I suffer with Anxiety and GAD, and I have a fear of leaving my "comfort zone". I can usually only travel about 30 minutes from home, and then I get REALLY anxious and have to turn around and go home. My husband is very supportive, and we have been trying to work on this so that I can travel farther distances.
Today we decided to take a road trip, and he told me that if I needed to turn around that he would at any time....so we set out. I was able to travel to a city that is about an hour and 15 minutes from my house, AND I stayed there for 3 hours! and I WASN'T ANXIOUS!!
I know to the "normal" person this wouldn't seem like a big deal, but for me, it is HUGE!! So next weekend, we will be setting out for somewhere even farther
I'm feeling so great about being able to do this!! I know you fellow anxiety sufferers can relate so I had to come and share
