I’m thinking I should see a hypnotist or something about my driving anxiety.
I’ve always been an anxious driver but it seems like it’s getting exponentially worse. Like if I have to go anywhere off my normal beaten path I have to go through all these extra preparations and if there’s the slightest unexpected blip, my heart races and my knees tremble.
I keep asking myself what exactly am I anxious about? It’s not like a terror about accidents although I do have an exaggerated fear of skidding into a vehicle in front of me. I’m committed to safe following distance.
I don’t know how to explain it. It’s like I’m afraid all the other cars will beat me up if I do something wrong.
