I too have driving anxiety. A few minor fender benders & speeding tickets. I have not driven in ten years and do not miss it ~ the fear and anxiety part. Now I live close enough to a shopping center, movie cinema, hair cut salon, my bank and restaurants that I can easily walk to. I am on medications that can cause drowsiness so I am safer not driving. Also I know a driver who takes me for longer drives, a lot cheaper than owning a car and car maintenance and he is a quality driver. I also have a friend for big orders at Walmart twice a month. I have learned to cope without driving.
I hope you can get over your fears and anxiety with driving. I wish I could but as I wrote have found other means of transportation.
By the way welcome back. I just came back this January after a four month hiatus on SP.
Have a healthy day!
