I am really having an issue and Im not sure what I need to do about it. I am starting to become afraid to drive. Ive had some major issues with that lately and its not getting much better. I wont explain what happened because it could be very triggering to others, but lets just say that the more I struggle with depression and the other issues in my life right now the more afraid I am to get behind the wheel of my car because of what goes through my mind. I have a very very very long drive to my internship each day and Im very nervous what that will be like for me if I continue to feel this way. I dont want to be afraid to drive myself places or do things or it will greatly inhibit my ability to finish school. Today I drove myself to my internship just to see where it was and I nearly had to call my roommate and ask her to come get me and my car, not 100% because of whats going on but partly because I was feeling pretty sick too. Ive run myself so ragged that I barely have the energy to do anything in regards to preparing to school. Instead of regaining the strength I needed for this semester Ive spent the last week running around helping others and taking care of those who needed it, even the 1 day I did take for myself was ruined by fighting with a family member. Its not helping that Im feeling like a bus hit me and I have to start up the semester tomorrow. I have no idea whats going on in my head but I think this depression is starting to get the better of me and I am so worried about what is going to happen. Has anyone else ever had events happen that have pushed them away or made them afraid of still doing the same activities that led to the event?
