Kind of wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I would say I'm quite an adventurous person by nature but lately I've had this weird thing that's got worse.
Normally, I just go between work and my house and maybe to the shop to buy groceries, so I don't really see the world much outside of that by necessity. I'm always dreaming about going somewhere else for a change but as soon as I actually do I get this crippling fear that something will go horribly wrong if I go anywhere else. I get scared just to take the bus to another town!! Its so strange and unlike me. And I am also finding I lose faith in my ability to make even the simplest decision. And I'm flat out terrified if I have to meet new people or have to deal with a family get together or something. I desperately want to escape my little comfort zone but I have this dread that I'll end up in some stupid accident that I could have avoided, or something. And I'm also scared that I'll never achieve good things in my life. Its kind of all irrational and bizarre. I can see that but it doesn't stop it affecting me.
I was merely curious if anybody else experiences this and what you do to manage it.
