I've decided that I'm going to seriously work on conquering my fears. I ordered the Midwest Center Anxiety program to help me with my fear of driving on the highway. The fear has caused me to be a prisoner in my own town. I have family and friends that I don't see because of not driving on the highway. There are only a few individuals that know that I have a fear of driving on the highway. I'm too embarrassed to tell anyone because I'm afraid of what they would think of me.
I'm still dealing with my back issues but I'm getting better. I will see the doctor in October, so, I have to be patient until that time. I'm able to do something, so, it is better than nothing. I do have to admit that I become a little down when I run into individuals that I started running with that are now doing 1/2 marathons while I can only walk.
I've been doing a little bit better with weight watchers but still not 100%. I weigh in tomorrow, so, I will see how it goes.

    You aren't alone. I saw a television show on this once. It took working with a psychologist/counselor in order to get over the fear, but the woman felt so free once she was able to conquer it. I hope that you are able to acheive that freedom as well. Was there a catalyst that caused you to be afraid of driving on the freeway? If you don't mind me asking.

    That's really great that you're taking steps to deal with an anxiety that is having a negative impact on your life. Best wishes.
