I'm still working full time and my job requires occasional travel. I'm supposed to leave on a trip tomorrow, it should be an easy one, short plane flight, just 2 nights gone... No brainer, right?
The closer the trip gets, the more anxiety I have... What if something happens? I find myself getting very worked up about all the things that could happen, getting sick, pulmonary embolism (i am on blood thinners for a clot), fever (i think I'm getting sick - my husband is just getting over a horrid cold), chemo side fx, etc.
I know the likelihood of any of these things is low, but I'm anxious none the less.
Is this normal? Am I just a wuss? Has anyone else had any luck in dealing with unrealistic worries and anxieties? I cant medicate out of this one, I'm supposed to be at work.
I'm normally oretty strong, just cant seem to shake this. Any advice is welcome!
