I have one but I can't drive LMAO
HOLUP.I got mine at 27. I have...had (?) a crippling a phobia of cars and driving. I'd cover my eyes and duck when the driver would turn left or merge. I was in several car accidents growing up, other close calls. My parents, God bless 'em, had some drinking problems if you want the TL;DR. I started doing exposure therapy in mid-2017 along with driver's ed and had my license with by that November. I've been driving for a little over a year now and while I don't drive 100% anxiety-free (a car is a normal place to have SOME anxiety) it's gone from a place of a complete panic to a place where I honestly think I have an average amount of worry now. My life has changed so much for the better since getting my license now that I don't live in a walkable city.
