Me, too!

I'm 47 and just recently developed this fear. When i was younger, I drove all across the country by myself and never once got scared. Now, I'm terrified to leave my state (Maine) to go anywhere, unless I'm with other people.

I don't know what it is I'm scared of exactly - I think I'm afraid to get hopelessly LOST. Yeah. That's it. I even had a panic attack when my 18 year old son drove alone to college 11 hours away. I was afraid HE was going to get lost or something...He was fine.

I get the same....

I'm 23 and I have the same problem. I feel the same exact way...its fear of the unknown..think the only way to get over it is to just do it...alone
