I haven't had a driving lesson in two weeks due to circumstances beyond my control. I have one tomorrow - for two hours - and I am anxious. I have been feeling very anxious and weird today, had a sense of dread and unease and can only put it down to my fear tomorrow.
I am terrified of dual carriageways... I feel trapped there, if that makes any sense, because I cannot escape, stop or pull over if I wanted to and must keep driving at the same speed in a straight line... And I know doing anything else would be dangerous!
I know I need to go on them more to stop the fear, but I have such a fear of accidents when driving and not having a lesson for two weeks has made this fear worse!! Not good when I have test mid-October. For me it's always the same old thing... Fearing a place or situation from which escape would be difficult or embarrassing. Making a fool of myself, going insane, losing control etc.
I take sertraline 50mg, started two weeks ago, but don't feel like it's done much.
Any help or tips etc would be gratefully received.
