emoticon to the team. It sounds like you may have some type of trauma related to the bridge or some type of fear that it triggers. I have safety issues due to my PTSD. I have had to find a safety trigger to employ when I must deal with those things that trigger my anxiety which triggers my PTSD. What seems trivial to others in very terrifying to me. I have a key chain with a charm if a Highway Patrol hat and I rub it when my anxiety begins to rise. I also have the phone number of some officer friends in my telephone that they insisted I have. I never call them but rub on the outside of my cell phone if I feel anxious or afraid. These are things that work for me. Best wishes on finding some helps.

Sorry, I tried to send an absolutely funny video to you all, but I tried it after posting and it didn't work.

I just wanted to introduce myself briefly and see what sort of support this site can be for me.

I am a single mother of two. I have a 5 year old son and 11 year old daughter.I have been dealing with anxiety for about 6 years now. It actually attacks me on a specific location and limits me alot at times. It seems more lately again. I understand it is related to stress and I feel I make it a bigger issue than it needs to be. What I mean is, yes I get anxiety; but I feel I get anxiety over having anxiety.

There is a bridge it has centered on. This bridge is important to me as it is an access to most of the services my children and I need with no other option. It seems when i am coming up to it my anxiety starts. I even start worrying about it when I wake up and know I have to cross it at the end of the day.

I want this to go away, or at least quit controlling me. I hate it and hate feeling like something this trivial can control me so much.

What can I do?
