Hello: I have been suffering with Anxiety for about 4 years. The first three years, I was at my worst. I couldn't drive or be left alone. I have caused so much stress to my family because I depended on them every waking hour. I lived in Hell waiting for death but death never came. I went to see a counselor who recommend a psychiatrist. I refused to see psychiatrist to avoid being prescribed drugs because I have two small children 3 and 7 years old. I got bold one day and decided to drive again. I am lucky I can take the service road to my job which takes me over an hour to get to work compared to 30 minutes on the highway. Then little by little I started getting on the highway and exiting off the first exit. Then one day I didn't get off the freeway and made it to work in one piece. I was told it can take you twelve good experiences to overcome a fear but one bad will set you back to one. That's what happen to me. I had one bad experience on the freeway because I let my fear overcome me and now I do not want to drive anymore. I am going back to my worrying and fear. I absolutely hate it.
