Driving Phobia

by Milanne

I am 28 and have never had a drivers license because I have a driving phobia. When I was 16 my mom had to literally force me, crying and begging, into the car to learn to drive and get my permit. I did learn to drive and probably still could to this day. The permit expired though, and that was that... I was never excited to be old enough to drive like the other teens around me and still don't see what the big deal is. I have been chauffeured around by friends, family, and boyfriends. I feel bad for them and wish u could change it but I'm terrified to drive. It's gotten worse as I've gotten older and now that I live in a bigger city the thought of driving in this city scares the bejesus out of me. It's mostly insecurities with myself I think because I've never believed in myself or had faith that I could operate a large machine like that without causing damage or something.
