- Wedding: September 2013
We are getting married in September and going on our honeymoon in November (planned this way on purpose).
We will be going on a cruise and visiting Princess Cays (Bahamas), Curacao, and Aruba.
I can’t WAIT to see Curacao and Aruba and when we took a cruise in 2009 on Princess, it was FABULOUS.
BUT …. I have anxiety and my fear of flying and traveling in general has really grown since then.
I want to cry just thinking about getting on a plane. (shudder). So scared.
And I can’t help but get a headache/panic attack when I think about security, passports, luggage getting lost, lay overs, late flights, etc, etc.
OMG I really feel sick to my stomach just thinking about all of this crap.
And my fiance keeps talking about the cruise and wanting to plan excursions, etc, but I seriously can’t even talk about it to him because I’m blinded by fear.
I LOVE traveling …. well, I love seeing new places and experiencing new things. But the older I get, the more afraid I get of being in a strange place, especially when there’s planes involved and confusing/stressful security/customs/the possibility of lost luggage, etc.
My fiance just doesn’t understand this and we’ve had a few arguments about this because he thinks I don’t even want to go on the honeymoon, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
We haven’t been on a real vacation in 4 years so I am BEYOND ready but …. scared. And feeling really stupid for it.
