So today I was going to PF Changes with my dad. Its about a 20 minute drive from my house to there so I suggested to drive. I have driven many times before (even while having DP). I am finished both segment 1 and 2 and am taking my drivers test in May. I am a pretty good driver although I drive slower than most people. It can be calming even with DP. The only thing I have a big fear of is the highway. I drove on the highway once and that was during my segment 1 when I didn't have DP so for the first time today I concurred that fear. Going on the ramp I was so close to having a panic attack. My heart was beating so fast. I thought I wasn't in control of my own body when I was on right lane but than I realized I actually am. I can drive, I can drive on a highway, I can merge, I can drive to PF Changes, I can be in control. We fear that we are not in control of ourselves but we are more than we think. Don't let DP control you all the time. Control yourself. For the first time in a while I was proud of myself and pretty happy.
