I'm starting to plan for my trip to London next month, to participate in the fMRI misophonia study. I made sure that my passport is up to date (it's good until 2021) and checked to make sure I didn't need any visas or other extra preparation because of the study. (Although I'm doing the study for personal reasons, not business, I don't want any to mess around and wait until the last minute if I do need something special for the trip.)
I'm also glad that I bought travel insurance when I purchased my airline tickets. It may have been more expensive than I've usually had to pay, probably due to the fact that it's an international trip, given how many flights were cancelled with the snow storm that hit us on New Year's, and then shut down many flights in Chicago/Atlanta/NYC Airports as the storm moved eastward, I'm not going to mess around that something like that won't happen in February. I also made sure I'm getting there three days before the testing not only to give me a little buffer in case I do have flight delays, I want to make sure that I have plenty of time to rest up before the testing so that I have no residual jet lag that might affect the fMRI testing. Given that I lost sensitivity to triggers when I was on Tramadol after the car accident, and became extremely groggy in the mornings, I want to be at my most alert - or at least closest to my "normal" state of mind - when I go in for the testing.
