I'm going to spill out my last worries to her and hope for the best tomorrow. I think the timing of everything with her leaving is causing me additional stress and worry. I also have a CBT session with my psychologist tomorrow morning.
Food is still an issue but at least I'm not crying and running out of work this week... I should be saying I need a vacation (do I ever!) but instead although I'm not excited I can say that I've come to terms with going tomorrow... I don't feel like I'm swimming upstream to get away from it any longer.
So there it is... thank you everyone. Much appreciated reading your stories and advice. I'll post an update when I get back (or maybe even while we're there since it's free wifi!!).
Hope you're having a great time! I just got back from our Canada trip yesterday and thought of you while on the plane, trying to come up with more tricks that I use to keep myself calm. This was probably the most relaxing trip I've had yet, so I'm hoping that the tricks I have learned that work for me become a "travel routine" to keep me calm from here on out
