I have two trips coming up I am dreading. It is not the trips themselves so much. I dread all trips. I dread most instances of leaving the house. It is part of my anxiety disorder. What I need to do is relax and take these trips slowly and deliberately. I need to remember to breathe while I drive, to breathe while I greet my parents, siblings, children, nephews, and nieces. If I remember to do that everything will be fine and I won’t freak out and embarrass myself. I will be sleeping next to the corn fields in Ohio.
