Am supposed to be going to airport in 3 hours for weeks holiday with my mum.
For the last few weeks have been feeling increasingly anxious and have ignored it, putting it down to being silly about flight and leaving ds (who had a nasty accident 2 weeks ago)

Tonight i just had this gut feeling that I shouldnt go, that something would happen and was in floods of tears. My mum said she has felt increasingly the same.

I know it sounds crazy and I dont know what we'll tell people or the tour operator.

HELP what do I do sad

You've been feeling unsettled about this trip for a while, sweetheart.
I think your worries have rubbed off on your mum.
Go to the airport, see how you feel.
Everything will be fine. smile

I don't know if this helps but sooooo often I have a gut feeling that somthing is a bad idea (not talkig scary premonitions or anything, just a general feeling tI'd be better off not going somewhere) and whenever I've ignored that feeling, i've been really glad that I ignored and had a great time.

Do what you feel is right but please don't angst it either way - just make your decision.

i dont think being at the airport will make it any better.
A part of me thinks just get a grip and get on the plane and another part of me is urging me to stay at home with my mum and the rest of my family sad

Mossy are you still here?

I just got up.

I always try to follow my instinct. There have been a lot of times in the past when I had a silly feeling about something, and much of the time it has been right - I'm sure there was one time it wasn't a big deal but mostly when I feel like that there's a good reason, call it a sixth sense.

I hope you are Ok x

we havent gone sad and although I feel silly, it ultimately feels like the right decision.
We are thinking of spending our spending money on a couple of nights at a spa close by just so mum can have a break but will still be close to home

Pushpinia Wed 24-Sep-08 11:48:50

Well actually Mossy I think that's very sensible. I would have done the same particularly if your mum didn't feel like it either. Did you get the money back then?

One can always have a break nearer home, it's much less stressful - I'd always prefer to stay near home! Holidays are a lot of hassle smile

mosschops30 Wed 24-Sep-08 15:13:49

Thank you smile I know its the right decision, even if they offered me a flight now I still couldnt go.
I am upset and feel down about it sad but probably not as bad as if I'd have gone and spent a week worrying myself sick.

Pushpinia Wed 24-Sep-08 15:20:29

No no don't feel bad. Sometiems there just is no 'right' decision, you just have to make it and live with it - far better to feel safe and comfortable than anxious, if you have to choose smile

I bet you'll find a good reason why it was the right choice though. Sometimes we know things and don't realise we know, iykwim...

mosschops30 Wed 24-Sep-08 15:24:33

Oh your post has made me smile smile for the first time today.

Everyone has said the same and that how unlike me it is, even dh being really understanding because hes never seen me like that.

Still feel a bit mad though hmm
