    Wondering if anyone has ever experienced this or something similar and has ways of 'treating it'?

    I have been abroad on holiday with my boyfriend for the past two years, we go for a week.
    I am always very excited to go. But on the day of I feel quite nauseous, nervous etc. I always tend to feel sick, and lose my appetite. When we arrive at our destination i feel exactly the same, i struggle to get to sleep but then i always feel sick and sometimes end up being sick.

    It lasts for maybe a day and then completely dissapears.

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or something similar and knows what the best ways to treat it are. And is it classed as travel anxiety?

    Do you know the reason you feel like this, or what specifically you're struggling with? It's good it doesn't last the whole time you're away but obviously still not nice! I struggle with new places a lot and sensory stuff but I've found I can reduce this by knowing exactly where I'm going and looking at it online beforehand so there's less to take in. It also helps to pack etc early so there's less to stress about the day before (not that I ever actually do :lol:) and making sure I've got stuff with me that help calm down. Simple repetitive games like 2048 are best for me, as well as online jigsaws, a colouring book and a hoodie/blanket/something soft I know the feel and smell of- sounds stupid but it helps! These things are different for everyone but worth thinking about so you can try and come up with things to reduce them, if not resolve completely. If it's becoming something that's really affecting you a lot or in day to day life then go and see your GP, they should be able to help you
