Hi. I am not necessarily new here, I have just recently re-joined this page. Not much has changed since my last visit, almost a year ago. I am still terribly afraid of burning down the house or of giving someone food poisoning.

I am not sure if anyone had read my blogs before, but here's a little brief summary of why I am here. I am currently a colelge student and ever since I was a little girl, I was so afraid of death/fire/being kidnapped and some other terrible stuff. I never reached out to anyone because I thought it was normal, but when I entered college, I realized it wasn't normal to constantly go back to my dorm room to make sure I unplugged the hair iron because I didn't wanna burn the building down. One of the biggest problems I have is driving. I know how to drive, I don't freak out or anything, but I choose not to drive. I am almost 22 years old and I still don't have a license. It is so frustrating to me because I wish my mind was like, "hey girl, quit being so afraid and get your license." I know that OCD is partially about changing your mentality, but it is so difficult. I have tried.

I have, however, gotten a bit better on these issues. I talked to a therapist and I was diagnoses with General Anxiety Disorder and OCD. Not surprising, really. The therapist helped me come up with ways to get over this fear of mine. I am planning on moving 9 hours away and I am not scared to leave, what I am afraid of is DRIVING there. I know I can do it, but I am so scared.

I know this blog is kinda messy, it's the end of the semester so my brain is already on Winter Break mode. What am I asking for is advice on getting over this terrible fear of driving. If any of you guys had the same fears, please share your stories with me. I need some motivation.

    I didn't get my license till I was 21. I was also afraid to drive. I am 45 now and have no fears while driving. It was something that I had to face because living in this world and not driving isn't practical in any way it's not easy overcoming fears but you have to try.
