I am a new hire at a job that I'm very excited about, and I want to succeed here. There is a mandatory company-wide retreat next summer in Europe (I live in USA along with the majority--I believe--of the company's employees). It's for a weekend, which seems like a short time to go intercontinental, but whatever.
I just learned that the only options for accommodations are in shared tents with air mattresses / sleeping bags. I can upgrade at my own expense, but only to a nicer, also-shared tent.
I already struggle with insomnia even in perfect conditions in my own bed. The thought of sleeping in a non-climate-controlled tent, on the ground, with people I may or may not know or like is giving me a fair amount of anxiety (the clinical, diagnosed kind). Both my insomnia and anxiety are being treated by medication (although we are still working on finding the right treatment) and can be backed with medical documentation.
Does anyone have any suggestions for how to handle this? I'm so new that I don't want to make too many waves, but this seems unreasonable to me. Am I being over-sensitive?
