I Can't Even Do It...I'm deathly afraid of it. I'm even starting to get panicy while other people are driving too. I get scared when going across long bridges or overpasses. Whenever I get behind the wheel of a car I get dizzy, my heart beats at an abnormal speed, I have trouble breathing, and my chest hurts really bad. I eventually start to cry or have an "out of body experience".
I feel like everyone thinks I'm stupid and that makes me even more depressed because I can't help it at all, to me it's perfectly rational to not drive, unlike the rest of my fears. Sometimes I wish people would be more sensitive to me than to just tell me to "get over it." It's not as easy as sitting in a car and driving it. And although I'm frustrated with myself and scared about the idea of being dependant on something/someone other than myself I'm more afraid of putting my hands on the wheel. I'd rather eat bugs then drive in traffic it scares the holy hell out of me. I don't ever want to do it.
