I'm going on atrip with my family next Friday to Mall of America. It's about a 7 hour ride from here. There should be a lot of rest stops along the way, but I'll carry some provisions in the van, just in case. I am c/d type and wonder if any of you have any tips since I also get a lot of gas(lower ab pain mostly). I will pack tea bags and plenty of water, I am not on any meds. I will also take along my supposedly"Safe Foods". I guess what I m most concerned about is the worry, if I worry about this too much, I won't have fun. My daughter planned a trip to the Minneapolis zoo as well. Anyway, any ideas on how to manage the anxiety, since I haven't been on a trip in a long time and really want to have fun with my family. Please...any ideas?
