    Keep driving. If people say your driving is fine, then believe them. I drive a crazy commute to work and my anxiety does go up because of my driving. It is all the people around me going 75-85 miles an hour in a 65 and 55 mile speed range. Mind you I am going around 70 and the are darting inand around me and pay no attention to my turn signals. Several time I thought they were going to take me bumpers, just to slam on their brakes 30 seconds later.
