Holiday? Why not!
Those of you who've been sharing my ramblings for some time now may remember that I wrote about panic attacks some time ago. For many years I've suffered from panic attacks and we haven't been abroad for our holidays since hotels, restaurants, aeroplanes, boats and being away from home often brought on very serious attacks. However, about eighteen months ago I spent a year having CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) and have improved hugely.
So, when friends told us of some of their wonderful river cruise holidays, I suggested to Christopher that we should try one. He was really surprised and our sons were pretty amazed too, but I persisted. So we booked a trip from Prague to Berlin on the Elbe.
We arrived home yesterday and I have a huge grin on my face, as I was fine, really fine. The CBT must have carried on working in my brain over the last year or so.
Tomorrow, I'll start to tell you a little bit about our cruise - once I've had a bit more time to rest. It wasn't the most relaxing of holidays but it was great fun.
