Fear of Driving or Riding



Active member
Jun 13, 2017
My phobia of driving and to a lesser stance being driven is so bad that I have to have my mom drive me every ware, and it is still hurts. I just drove the first time in a week and I was driving so slow I had to put on the hazard lights.


I have a fear of driving too. It terrifies me. When I tried to drive I got all panicky and almost swerved into a ditch. I can't get my drivers license because some psychiatrist forbade me. I am terrified of parking on steep hills the most. I am scared to even ride in the car with others who are good drivers too. It is a horrible life limiting fear. I hope you and I can conquer it. Best of luck to both of us. :hug:
