Re: Driving Anxiety

If I didn't have driving anxiety, and if I could drive anywhere without confusing intersections my anxiety would be managable

Dane... That is so true! I would rather be in a truck than a four wheeler! I finally told my fiancee the other day that I am a horrible driver in a car, but I can drive a truck without any problems.

It is kind of funny, I will drive a four wheeler almost anywhere, except downtown Seattle, and if I have to go to Downtown Seattle, it's by bus, or by truck for that matter.

I hate driving a four wheeler! I hate it! I hate it! I hate it! lol

That being said... Dane, can I borrow your truck? I still know my old driver id LOL

Re: Driving Anxiety

I just started thinking that my slow processing speed could be causing some of my driving anxiety. I do have anxiety before I start driving.unreasonable fears.I used to have excessive urination too

It's funny, my sister, who doesn't have ADHD, has driving anxiety, particularly manifested in that she refuses to drive on freeways. She's never driven on one. I think it's ludicrous and it frustrates me perpetually when my parents enable her by driving her places (mostly my mom) that she's perfectly capable of driving to herself but won't. I've offered to show her how to drive on a freeway--as if it's that difficult--but she always gets ****ed off when I do.

I guess this is how people feel when I tell them about my ADHD--that it's ludicrous, a personality defect, and/or doesn't exist. So, I should be a little more compassionate about my sister's driving anxiety. People in glass houses...

anonymouslyadd, that sounds like social anxiety. I have that, too, when driving, but it's not driving anxiety, per se--just more of the same old fear of negative evaluation by others. Mine manifests more in people "competing" with me on the road and fear of getting into a road rage incident with someone else.
I was not able to drive for years because of my anxiety, I finally found a P-doc who put me on klonopin and it worked miracles for me..I drive out of state now.Maybe your sister needs meds. It sure cant hurt..Hope she gets over her fear soon
