So I am probably overreacting just a lot.
But that is okay. Probably not. Anyway, last week I was driving to practice, which is during rush hour, and I almost got into a wreck at an intersection that you can only turn left or right, is curvy, hard to see, and has no stoplight. It’s the only road that leads away from the subdivision I live in. I have to left in order to go to practice. Usually its not too busy because school had been in setion and didn’t drive around 5:30. But now that school is out rush hour has gotten busier.
So how I almost wrecked. It was really busy and there weren’t any cars coming from my right, and there was a truck turning coming from my left. I knew there was a car behind the truck, but the road I was turning on has double yellow lines so its illegal to pass and I didn’t think that the car behind the truck would pass. So I started to make the left turn and the car hauls around the truck halfway into the far lane. We both slam on our brakes and I back up and he continues forward.
Now I am so scared to drive again I seriously get panick attacks every time I think that I have to drive. Since the almost accident, I have only had to drive once, at 9:30 in the morning when no one is out. I have practice tomorrow and I am freaking out. I think about it and my hands get sweaty and I feel like I can’t breath…. I am scared to drive tomorrow at rush hour again, its not even funny. I’m 17 so I haven’t really had my license all that long, and I moved about six months ago from a tiny town of 4,000 with no stoplights at all, or traffic really, to a city of 70,000. I don’t know how to calm myself or even if I could be able to drive myself to practice tomorrow. It’s stressing me out so bad. I know I am probably overreacting but not being able to breath might effect my driving too.
sorry if some of this doesn’t make sense. It’s kind of hard to explain and I am typing fast and scared like.
