Well, the anxiety didn't start after the car accident but it got a lot worse. I was involved in an accident on Tuesday of last week and I have felt trapped ever since. I don't drive with other people (aside from my father) because of my anxiety disorders. My father had to work on a big problem for work all weekend. Now that I am on medication for the pain of the accident I am trapped in my house until I heal enough to stop taking the pain meds. Earlier today I went out for a cigarette and the sight of the rental car where my car should be made me gag and choke until I threw up. I wish I could get over my fear of driving with other people so that I could leave the house. I have Xanac but it really doesn't help enough to keep me level while trying to let someone else drive. The last time I did they had to pull over a mile from the house and let me drive the car.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
