Thanks Davit, i will think about what you have said, i used to love driving, i dont know what triggered it, but seeing a bad car accident on the news or on the side of the road, may have something to do with it, and as you say i am focusing on the worst thing that can happen, you really have a lot of constructive things to add and i look forward to reading what you and the others in the group have to say, it does help
My mum lives 45 minutes away and i have been to her house every christmas for 17 years this year i decided i could not drive there (without even trying) and had everyone come to my house, it was nice to stay home for a change but i also wish i could have given it a go, i will do it this year, sometime, i like being at home also but i also think i have spent to much time at home and that has been my problem.
My new driving mantra is, im a good driver, im a safe driver, ive been driving for 25 years, i feel that it is a postive statement that i can tell myself while i am driving to not focus on the negetive, im gonna try anyway, two weeks i have to take my daughter to the orthordontist its about 20 minutes away, i have driven there perfectly ok sometimes and driven there anxious so its a coin toss as to how i feel, but i have to do it so i will.
I hope you have fun on your trip, as Davit said we are all there with you and your success is our teacher
