Just made my reservation for my first plane trip in 4 years. I don't love flying, but I like staying in hotels even less. I've been putting this off for weeks now, and it mostly feels good to have committed to this trip. I do like traveling for work in some ways- I like restaurants, and per diems, and sightseeing. So hopefully I will have some fun when I'm not worrying.


  1. Good luck on the trip. Enjoy the fun stuff, and good luck with the OCD. :)

  2. Have you thought about doing a little exposure therapy on the main anxiety provoking travel obsession? Perhaps something with the hotel? I've found continuous exposure is the best at extinguishing obsessions.

  3. Yes, I do need to do better about treating the hotel as an exposure, rather than just something to be lived through, complete with lots of compulsions.

    It's been so long since I stayed in one, but it's not like I don't have access to them locally.
