it’s been almost 3 months since I posted last. My last post was about taking that next step to start concoring one of my biggest fears (driving) I’m 24 and I got my driving permit sometime in the summer and I never set my test date for the driving portion. I just never had the confidence to do it. Finally after months of driving back in November I set my test date for February 7th. Now as this date is slowly approaching I’m losing all the confidence I thought I had. My anixity has been running full range of this fear of driving for the most part of my teens through adult years. I can feel the anixity slowly starting to bubble back up. I’m trying to remind myself that I can do this and I am ready, but am I can I really be able to do this? I’ve been going back and forth about this for weeks now. I don’t want my anixity and fears to win again for once I’d like to say “remember that one time I was really scared to do something and I did it even tho I was terrified?....” if I back out of this now I’ll never get the will power to do it again. I don’t think I have it in me. The fear has been a part of my everyday life for years it’s how I lived. It was always on my brain (the lack of a drivers license) I always compared myself to others and think bad of myself for not having one. Now, I can almost touch it, but I’m getting scared now...is that normal?
Hello all, Received good news on yesterday. Attended class today and know back to feeling overwhelmed about the work that is due. Can someone help me understand the point of good stress and bad stress again? I know somehow there should be a balance. When you all find your balance could you please let me know. smh
Things never work out how we expect :-(I go to a man for holistic therapy who has listened to me and given me treatment for health problems. These health problems have been caused by PTSD, because I've had six crimes. 4 of these were people in a position of authority purposely attacking me (in education and healthcare). This is awful abuse that happens behind closed doors that no one else sees...
