My driving anxiety is so bad. I want to be able to go out and do things but I just can't because I get so anxious and scared. Anyone else struggle with this?

      Yupp. I'm currently working on this with my therapist. What I've been doing is bringing a stuffed animal along as my copilot, and driving to a coffee stand. What I've found has helped me is to talk about what route I will take, say the street names or landmarks.

      I’m really bad at driving and not only that I have horrible steering spills But the fact that my anxiety is so high my family thinks that I just don’t want to drive or things that I’m being lazy and I don’t understand my chronic illnesses or the anxiety i experience

        @LixiKat I can relate to that. My parents don't get it at all.

      i’m really bad with driving anxiety :’) but the best thing you can do is just to start driving and always use a GPS. i also use a phone holder to look at my GPS and that’s been the thing that’s helped the most too
