    Always motorways or driving fast that kills me
    I won’t sleep the night before I have to drive anywhere farther than my nearest town and rely heavily on my husband and close family to go furthet a feild. It’s a ridiculous crippling fear that’s so
    Limiting to my life, opportunities for
    Fun family days out or career
    Opportunities out of my immediately comfort zone. I hate feeling like this and am
    Resigned to
    The knowledge this is me
    For life

    I’m ok to drive if I stick to a few main places like the gym or the grocery store. If I have to go anywhere else I get terrible anxiety. I have this ridiculous fear of not knowing where I’m going, and then getting into an accident because I’m not concentrating on the road. I bought a GPS but haven’t even used it because I always hear stories about how a GPS can take you in the wrong direction. I know it sounds crazy and that’s what’s so upsetting to me. I avoid going to so many places because of this problem and each time it happens, I feel worse about myself.

    Hi! I never had anxiety on the roads until two years ago. In fact, I used to love it and used to love to go as far as I could for work. This all ended two years ago when my first panic attack happened in a July pop up storm, on the expressway, in traffic. I felt I was trapped and I was going to faint. Legs went numb, started to see funny, and got really nervous. Now mind you this was 13 days into switching birth control pills. So I’m sure hormones played a heavy roll. However this was embeded in my brain. I went to therapy, did some hypnosis with her, and started feeling a little better. Then two weeks ago I was on a very very heavy congested highway and drove about 5 mph for many miles while it was snowing. Everyone seemed so close and I had another one. I thought it was “licked”. I started to meditate again and try some CBD to help. Sick of the mental games. I do function on some form of anxiety and apparently have my whole life but never related it with anxiety until the big attack two years ago. I guess I feel trapped in traffic, like I can’t escape. I’m fine at normal higher speeds. I too was starting to be scared of going far and traveling in anything other than dry conditions. I’m slowly working on that. But the though of not being free to do what I need to, and being stuck, when I already have zero patience, is my trigger now.
