Many of my anxieties that have developed over the years are travel-related. They all present their own challenges for people like me who never know how they are going to be feeling. People think I am very weird/unfriendly when I don’t want to ride in cars with them or prefer to meet them at a place in my own car. Flying has really evolved into an extraordinarily uncomfortable event. I have read that the change in cabin pressure can affect the gut. All I know is that however long the flight is in the air, is how long I have a very violent reaction with intestinal gas. It doesn’t end until the flight is on the ground. And then I have to recover from that attack, which can take quite a while…days. And so it goes…with each mode of transportation, a different anxiety/phobia manifests itself. I think for some reason, buses inspire the greatest fear. Trains, not so much. I’d be interested to hear from whoever is reading this about travel fears/indignities that I have not covered.
