I experience a lot of anxiety when driving with dp/dr. I don't always feel in control. Lately it is better but I am afraid I've become so immune to my dp/dr that I am still not with it. I fear that I shouldn't be driving. I sometimes worry that I am doing things wrong. I am always doubting my abilites, like if the light is green I wonder and freak out when I go through the intersection--what if that was a red light?!! I also worry when changing lanes, what if something is really in my blind spot and my eyes are playing tricks on me??? I am also paranoid of hitting pedestrians even when none are around. The only thing is that I haven't died in a car accident yet. I haven't come too close to an accident either. I feel like on the outside I am a good driver and others would probably say so too. That's becaue I am hyper sensitive to everyhthing I do. My dp/dr also affects other areas in a similar way, but driving is one thing I've noticed that causes excessive anxiety. Can anyone else relate?
