When ever I get close to my menstral cycle I obsess about travelling and even impulsivly take off to anywhere I can get. It's so weird, all of a sudden my budget disappears and out come the credit cards for what ever strikes my fansy. I am exagerating but it is that ridiculous, it's as if I become a stranger to myself. Why is this happening to my life?
I haven't run into this one specifically, but you can regard it as a variation on compulsive shopping. There is some information and support groups on the web and you should definitely consider sitting down with a mental health professional to get to the bottom of it.
As with any compulsion/addiction, it is likely about the avoidance of emotional pain. Facing the pain will ultimately feel better and be cheaper.
