Are you me?
I have anxiety problems too — every time anything happens to me, anything good, bad, fun, exciting, nervewracking, etc. it overtakes me. I love to travel (and to some extent do it anyway) but for at least the first hour or so I feel like I’m gonna die. I hate cars and buses, they amplify the effect. Planes are a little better (flying isn’t fun but I’d rather do it than a bus) and trains are legit soothing.
I’m super super super super nervous about this whole wedding business. I’m excited to get all dolled up and take pictures and visit family and everything, but I won’t pretend I wish we could just elope sometimes. Like you, I know I’d regret it. Originally I wanted to have a really small wedding, really casual, but FH so badly wants something that will let him show off a little…
We’re compromising in the middle (small guest list, semi-grand setup) but it’s still hard and scary. Even just that I’m flying 14 hours to GET to my wedding. I think we can both do it!
@WhiteIris: I just started vitamin D! I’ll post something if it seems like it’s helping after awhile.

Now my Fiance is suggesting we get married with just my parents thereand no reception. Then we would go somewhere for a mini honeymoon. I really dont want to do that but ive been so upset and complaining about my panic that he thinks it would be best. He doesnt want to spend any more money on it and i freak out last minute and not be able to do it. I really dont know what to do. I wish there were a magic pill to help, or a invisibility cloak.

Here is a little more info:
“A recent study of about 63,700 college students found that five times as many young adults are dealing with high levels of anxiety as in the late 1930s.”
“The vitamins, minerals and other compounds in food act almost like medications on the brain,” says Gómez-Pinilla. Australian research recently found that women who ate a whole-foods diet, with lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat and fish, were 32 percent less likely to experience anxiety” …
Most of our foods show these same vitamin decreases over the years.
Do a little bit of Google research – Here is the article quoted above: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39335628/ns/health-mental_health/t/why-are-anxiety-disorders-among-women-rise/#.UPgsf8XNkyk
Watch a few food documentaries. Foodmatters is a good documentary… it’s on Netflix. A lot of them are on Netflix.
