Hello everyone...

Finally, people who understand!  I am 36 years old and hate to drive. It simply terrifies me. I have lost many friends in my life due to the fact that I am terrified of driving.
I did get my license. I really don't know how. I had failed about three times before. I am able to drive locally. I drive to the pharmacy to get meds or to the grocery store, but that is about it. But on highways, forget it! I don't know how long it has been since I drove on a highway. And no one ever understands this. I hate to go out.  The whole conversation turns into me and how I am going to get there and home, and it is simply embarrassing. I did have a few friends who did not mind driving me, but most found it to be an inconvenience. When I tell people that I am afraid of driving, they simply can't understand how I don't love driving.
I am currently looking for a job, but I am very limited as to where I can work because of my lack of driving skills. I can't work anywhere that would involve driving on a highway to get there.
Anyway, it is so nice to find people who understand what I am going through.
