    I have wanted to visit Rome and New York from a young age well before social media. I admit up until a few years ago I had no intention of visiting Europe due to having a bad experience in Paris I got lost and the food wasnít good. That was in 2013 but I since went back and found my way better and found better restaurants. It doesnít matter why I do it I donít think about why much other than how blighted many towns in the UK are. My dream is New York because itís the city bc that never sleeps. So much to do and very built up probably lots of shops. China is also appealing but these are far away so unless air travel processes I find I may struggle. Iím open to some sort of counselling to tackle my fear of flying as I hear that can work.

    A bit of an update on my job situation I said I wouldn’t get a transfer so I tried some jobs but failed to go to the interview. Good news is they have since done a u-turn and offered me a job more local. Course it means a choice to make and some anxiety but it’s a good chance to test the solipsism and free will issues I have as I hate making life choices right now due to the anxiety I get. I said to myself today how did I manage to get married given that’s a life choice but some how I done it.

    I'm not sure how much air travel is likely to progress in the next few years in terms of airspeed, and given you want to do all this rapidly as you worry about age, I think the onus is on you to progress. You could certainly try some therapy to help, but then get on a plane ASAP otherwise I think your fears would just resurface while you wait for the "perfect time".

    Congrats on the job move. I hope it works out well for you.

    Yes I don’t know if I need therapy to get on the plane. Problem is I go through phases of not wanting to fly and I’m in that phase right now. I also moved shops before.

    Like I say my ocd isn’t too bad right now I get these ocd thoughts and forget them my issue is this anxiety I want to make choices without the anxiety. Its funny as when my anxiety is low sometimes my ocd is high. Rare are both low.

    I think I need some sort of cure for all my themes yes I want a miracle cure but I do want to do things without the anxiety..

    Re: Can anybody recommend a wash basket?

    So like the flying my fear is if I take the job I can’t not turn up can I? Worst case I go off on the sick. I do want a change but it’s a worry. Sometime said do some pros and cons I did this and found more pros.

    The question is can I do it? Can I really change jobs just like can I really fly? Thing is I have done both these before moved stores in total 3 times now and flew upto 2 times a year. So why am I finding stuff hard now? I fear the solipsism is playing a part and the idea of change of familiarity. Like I say I wish I could make choices without any anxiety I guess I will do what I do and that’s what happens but it’s awful the anxiety in making these choices.

    I feel my anxiety is bad right now like a dial that turns up. I have been trying to use distraction to take my mind off it
