Driving Situation

Well it has been about a month since my car accident.   I got my new car last week.   I am getting used to it and I love it.

I am still a little freaked out and over cautious about driving.  I am doing really well during the day, but rainy weather and night time is a different story.    I haven’t driven much at night at all.    I have places to go the next two evenings and I am panicked.   I have cancelled plenty of evening plans the last couple of weeks and it is time for me to step up and take some control back … I want to join the party.   I can do this, right?  I am so anxious and projecting all that can go wrong.

Steve had an accident last week.   It was a different kind of accident, but he has no fear of driving – I even have fear riding with him and others.   I am an even worse passenger then I was before.   Steve was out of town and there was nothing I could do to help him.   I am so grateful it wasn’t more serious as it very well could have been.  It was a rental car and a business trip so it is the company’s insurance.

I am feeling better, still have some pain in my back and I am seeing my chiropractor.   I have had a couple therapy sessions on this fear of driving.   I am hoping time will help since nothing else really is.

I went to a meeting tonight just so I could “practice” driving at night to prepare for the next couple of days.  It is the first time I have driven my new car at night.   Let me just say I would hate to be the person behind me.  The AA club is a straight shot from my house so it is not difficult, tomorrow and the next day will be more of a challenge, a challenge that I just hope I am up to.
