I’m all packed and ready to go. My ride will be here soon and then I’m off to the airport. All of the sudden, my nerves are kicking up. I’m afraid that anything could go wrong. What if I don’t make it to the airport on time? What if I miss my flight? Will I be able to find a comfortable spot to sit down while I’m at the airport? Will I end up sitting next to someone who is polite or annoying? There are so many thoughts and possibilities bouncing around in my mind. I don’t know the answer to any of them. No one knows the answer, until they actually happen.

I’m trying to figure out when to take my first Valium for the day. It’s an entire day of flying for me, which means I want to make sure my Valium lasts as long as possible. The one thing that’s making me feel better is that I know at the end of the day, I will be with my mom. That makes everything better. I can’t wait to give her a hug. She makes all of the airport crap worth it.

Well, it’s time to pack my laptop. Here I go…

  1. I’m glad you had a great vacation. I too go through the same scenarios in airports. I hate how anxious I get especially when a few years ago it never would have been an issue for me. I’m sure I make for good people watching though.

    1. Thanks, you’re right, I do a pretty good job of people watching. I do my best to find somewhere to sit in the airport with my back to the wall so no one comes up behind me. I travel about 3 or 4 times a year, so I’ve become much better at setting boundaries and taking care of myself. Not easy to do.
