I am well known by my friends and family to react this way too. About a week before I leave, I get overwhelmed and just start thinking, why am I even going, I should just stay home, the pets will be happy, the garden will be watered, the mail and newspapers will come, etc.

I recognize these feelings now, they are just reactions to changes that I have to make before a trip.

I know they start when I start putting my clothes in my suitcase, choosing and eliminating and getting stressed out over what to pack, throwing in "just in case" clothes and then taking them out.

I think it just can get overwhelming when I have planned too much.

I dont think that being overwhelmed with planning and leaving on a trip is a sign of being unstable.

I am the complete opposite and I really feel for you who get so stressed. I am so happy to plan, research and go. I am beam from ear to ear for up to a month before the trip. I love planning outfits. I love the anticipation. I love securing the hotel reservations, the plane tickets, and car rentals. Actually it is very relaxing for me. I am in heaven while looking forward to a trip. I am in heaven on the trip...and I start planning the next one immediately.
Best of luck to all of you...
Happy Holidays....

Sue, what a great way to deal with stress! Thanks -- I'll remember that.

Thanks anon, too -- I thought I was the only one. The only time I ever want to stop travelling is the week before each trip, when an overwhelming wave of "why on earth am I putting myself through this" comes over me.

Once I'm on the plane, I'm happy!
