I'm a university student and the prospect of going home for Christmas makes me feel ridiculously anxious - lump in throat, nausea, shaking, tight chest, belly ache, feel paralysed with anxiety.
What makes it worse is that I can't pin point why I'm so anxious. I think it's a combination of:
- Loss of independence
- Feeling trapped in the house and town itself
- Constantly being surrounded by people who I don't think understand how I'm feeling
- Fear of feeling/being sick, therefore not eating with people and being different
Anyone feel similar or have any tips? I'm going home on Sunday. I feel like I'm just waiting for time to slowly past to January when Christmas is over and I'm back at my university home
