I used to be a fairly confident driver, but since being in an accident on the highway just before Christmas, I can barely stand being a passenger in a car, let alone driving one.
I know it’s normal to feel this way after an accident but it’s getting worse as time goes on, not better. I tried to drive a few days ago and was shaking so bad that I had to go back home. Just thinking about driving on the highway makes me feel sick.
I think I’d feel better if someone was in the car with me, but since I’m far away from my family and my friends are too busy, I can’t find anyone to help me with it. So I’m going to try driving around a parking lot tomorrow and at least once a day until I can get back on the road again.
