This has in turn, caused me to try to avoid ever getting in the car with someone. And I have rules about when I do. First, I cannot eat anything prior to going, I do not want people talking to me or even acknowledging me for the first 5 minutes, I pray and even talk to myself out loud when I am having one, saying things like , "You know God won't let anything bad happen to you, why are you doing this to yourself?" "you are bigger than this Tabby" "Not today Devil, you won't get to me today". Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have got to get ahold of this problem. It is ruining my life.
