I Am Afraid to Drive.
I am afraid to drive and whenever I tell anyone about this fear I usually get laughter, told to get over it, and that I am not a good mother because I cannot drive. It wasn't like I planned for this. I used to drive everywhere and anywhere when I was younger. I loved just getting in my car and heading out to a party for the night or even just driving myself to work. But, one day....that all just went away. You even mention driving to me and my whole mood changes. I get panicky and I feel sick to my stomach. I get all jittery and I just don't want to go anywhere. I put off hanging out with my friends, going to the grocery store, or even giving myself a few things all because I am afraid to drive. I don't like being a joke. I don't like feeling that what I am feeling is wrong. All of this is about to ruin my new marriage. And I don't want that to happen. I want to overcome this. What can I do?
