So I just want to to release this worry. I haven’t driven the kiddos to school lately because we walk unless there is bad weather. I had a nightmare last night about not being able to see at night and not driving home but a friend drove me and I had to ask my husband to go get the car the next day...so I am nervous... nervous I will have trouble tomorrow with driving or just with my imagination running wild and making me feel out of control.
At one point my driving and panic attacks was baaaaaad that I stopped driving except for certain spots that seemed safe, yet STILL had the attacks like all the time and I just painfully pushed to expose myself and fight back against the anxiety even at home I was anxious but lately have had not much anxiety at all!!!!! So why am I worried, now, right?
I don’t know why. In the past I have done it right thousands of times and I recall I made mistakes 3 times and even in those times no one was hurt. So it should probably be fine. My chest hurts, it’s hard to breathe, palpitations, I’m restless and jumpy. I know I can beat this so I’m taking deep breaths and trying for stillness in the mind. I keep thinking that I will make a mistake and the crossing guard will pull me over lol aaaaand tomorrow it may be pouring rain. I live in VA so we have some bad storms coming from the hurricane. Even though I don’t think we’ll get it too too bad it will be a tropical storms with heavy wind and rainfall.
If anyone can relate to the fear that something bad will happen, has encouragement for me or something that may help calm my racing mind I would much appriciate it.
