I am terrified of getting in a car accident when someone else is driving. When I was little a semi-truck hit us and by some miracle, we survived with just scratches. My dad, who is now a retired cop and you would think he knew better, used to drive drunk all the time, swerving and almost hitting cars, and then once we got into a car accident on a bridge and almost went off. Then, my ex-husband drove my daughter and I off an embankment trying to kill us (yes, I left him at that point). I just got married yesterday. I usually drive because he knows it's a huge issue to me. Today he drove and I was in such a panic I was in tears. I've been in therapy for this, I just don't know what to do. He got mad at me--he's a very sweet, wonderful guy and I'm sure I looked like an idiot, just crying while he drove but I don't know what to do. My husband is a very safe driver, he does it for a living but I can't handle it. Anyone ever have a similar problem and how did you handle it?

I'm sorry you've had such bad experiences but your DH is just going to have to understand that you've been traumatized and that is something that's just not going to go away go back to counseling and get some more help until then you drive if he truly loves you he'll understand and let you.
