    I'm going on a 4 day school trip to Spain in a few weeks and I'm so, so nervous.

    It should be fun, it's a small group of us (10 students I think and 2 teachers) and we've got lots of things planned like visiting monuments and tours and meals and shows

    But I suffer with really bad anxiety.

    I'm worried it's going to ruin the trip for me, I'm scared that I'll be anxious during it and that I'll have a panic attack or be sick or feel faint or not sleep.

    It's my first time going abroad without family for 3 years and in that time I've developed this horrific anxiety disorder and I won't be able to control it and it's making me absolutely terrified of going on this trip. The last time I stayed away from home I had a panic attack at 2am, threw up and had to be sent home which obviously cannot happen here as I'll be in another country!

    I barely know the other 9 students- 2 are in my class and I get on ok with them, but the other 7 are in the year below and I don't know them. My teacher is aware of my anxiety but still...

    I just really don't know what to do, I don't want to go on the trip any more because my anxiety is making me so nervous for it but I have to- my parents have already paid and my passport is at the school and stuff and has anyone got any advice?


    PS: to make matters worse, we're travelling my aeroplane and I really hate planes!
