I was raised to keep to what I promised "Otherwise you'll spoil it for everyone" ..........  :'(.  "You'll B OK once you're there".  Well I usually was in that I was never sick, didn't faint, didn't see anyone else be ill ..... but the anxiety prior  :-\ :'(

So that response remains.

Hi all, it's been a very long time since I posted on here, but I can so relate to this thread.  We're off for a 2 week cruise on Sunday.  Sounds fabulous doesn't it, and we've been looking forward to it for such a long time.

However, my sciatica flared up again last week, added to which I had tingling round the genitals, especially when I sat down.  Needless to say that sent me into a flat spin, convinced that I had everything known to man, and that I'd either end up in a wheelchair or in a box.  Holiday thoughts went completely out of the window.  I finally saw my GP yesterday and husband came along with me for moral support.  He did all the tests, listened to my symptoms, and said he was not hearing anything that concerned him in any way.  He has referred me for an MRI as he says mainly that will put my mind at rest, and then we can look at how we treat the sciatica.  It didn't quite calm me down, and husband and I had some quite tense words last night, but I had a good night's sleep and feel a bit better today.

I was thinking that I'd end up in hospital in Spain or France (where we are going) and was even looking up the facilities for the medical centre on the ship.  I swear to god sometimes I think I'm going mad.  I just can't believe how anxiety rears up and just completely floors you but it always seems to happen when I am looking forward to something, particularly holidays.  Many's the time we've gone to our favourite place in Greece, and I've spent the first few days wishing I could go home.

The menopause, and post-menopause, is just pants sometimes  :(

OK turn this on it's head!  You have looked at the medical facilities on board.  You are going to Europe and presumably have the green card/equivalent to carry with you?  Taking appropriate pain relief with you or buying when you get to the Pharmacy on the ship?

So get that case packed!  I have had sciatica for a few days, can't fathom why ........... a gentle walk and a bath have sorted symptoms thus far.

I want to go on holiday, come home quick so that I know if I've had a good time  ::)

I can't face food, that's what goes immediately when anxiety hits.

Not in my head, it begins in my gut: queasy, thighs go weak followed by calves and then I'm floored.  A Psychologist once tried to insist that I had to think of problems in order for anxiety to begin.  Nope.  I walked from the session and never went back.
