Some of you know i am on the Stroke community. That was actually the main reason for me getting on DS. I am on disability and I have no physical impairments. The point is I would really like to just get in my vehicle and go to Oregon to see my daughter and all the sites in between. I have 2 fears. One is that I can't handle much stress without getting very confused. I drive around here all the time without problems. I know that if I drive for 5 hrs, I stand a chance of getting overloaded mentally. This means about 16 hours of rest in order to get back to my new normal. My other fear is getting stuck somewhere and letting fear cause me to decide to have a drink. I hardly ever think about a drink anymore. Yet I realize here I have a Home Group a sponsor and my sponcee's. Should I say f-it to the fear and try. Should I just face that this is beyond my capabilities and accept staying at home. I have been thinking about this for a couple of years. You guys on the outside of my head. What do you see here?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
