I think I might be crazy

For the past year and a half, ever since I had my second child, I am afraid to go anywhere further then about 10 minutes away. It's not all the time, sometimes I am ok but sometimes I panic, mostly when I will be going on a highway or even worse a bridge. Tomorrow, I am going to something downtown with friends and I will be taking my kids, it is about a 40 minute drive and I am panicking. I feel convinced that something will happen like an accident or something. I can't tell anyone because they will think I am crazy, hell I think I am crazy. Has anyone gone through this?

ps I have never been in an accident more serious then a rear ending

You sound like you have agoraphobia.

Maybe, it's just weird because I have never had this fear before

Sounds like anxiety. I get it sometimes in relation to driving specifically.

Sounds like panic disorder with agoraphobia.

Sometimes depression presents itself in the form of anxiety. That's why they prescribe antidepressants for anxiety. Maybe you have ppd. Check with your doc. Hope you have fun tomorrow!

You're having panic attacks. I've had them since i was a kid. I can go for months without a problem and then all of a sudden my vision fishbowl's, it's hard to breathe and it feels like I have cotton for a brain. Xanax helps.
