For anyone who’s ever been on the road for more than a few days, it is known fact that Post-Tour Depression (PTD) is real. Coming back from being on the road can feel like never-ending jet lag for some, while others can experience a serious case of mood changes, increased anxiety, stomach issues, and even severe withdrawal from the outside world.
If left ignored, these symptoms can snowball into very dangerous illnesses, both mentally and physically. It’s not surprising, given the lifestyle many experience while on tour.
Life on the road can lead to a feeling of extreme isolation, no matter how many people are around you at any given moment.
