Dromomania: An Uncontrollable Urgency to Travel

1 Like

I haven’t read the full article but plenty of people have a strong desire to travel even if it costs their job, partner or savings account.

Dromomania imo is also common in the regular population.

Edit: In my case I travelled more pre-psychosis than post-psychosis.

I’ve only travelled abroad once since I turned 18. That was to see my Dad and step mum in Charlotte NC in 1995. I was born in what is now called Kinshasa in the democratic republic of Congo. I was about 18 months old when we left there. As a child and teenager lived in Bangkok,San Francisco, and Zurich.

Nice that you got to live as a kid in several continents and got exposed to several cultures.

I moved for the first time abroad when I was 19 and an Erasmus student in France.
