Do you have a driving fear? I have one and I agree you just have to push yourself, exposure therapy.

I had a major breakdown last year and stopped driving the freeway. I make myself drive a little further and I also started walking too and it is a good stress release. I think my fear is a fear of being unsafe. If that makes sense

I have learned to stop praying to get better and to pray that it goes away.......
