I'll be off to Japan 2 weeks from now. Since my last flight a week ago, my nerves have been getting the better of me. I'm feeling more nervous than my last flight.
My upcoming flight will involve a one-hour transit in Hong Kong. I have this irrational fear that I will make the leg to Hong Kong but will refuse to board the connecting flight to Japan.
I've been unfocused at work and just very jittery all around. The anxiety is so strong that I've lost my appetite :( I've even started compiling a list of psycho-therapists in Japan and Hong Kong so that I can seek professional help in case I have a breakdown.
This journey feels so lonely sometimes. I have well-meaning aquaintences who give me bad advice like, "someone should just punch you, then you can pass out". How come they don't understand that this only makes me feel worse? So miserable :(
One thing that has helped me to relax is to mediate for a few minutes every day. But if anyone has any advice on coping with my anxieties leading up to my flight, I'm all ears.
Thank you for reading my post.
