So I have an anxiety disorder and its pretty bad, I've never been,able to work or drive or go anywhere by myself. This past year I got myself into therapy and have been on medication for a little over a year. Since then I've been able to get my license and drive my DD to school which is just down the street and residential street only. Im also able to go into certain places by myself now as well, but I've still been too afraid to drive anywhere else and never have. Part of my new therapy is desensitizing myself of my fears. There is a gas station a block away from the school, but on a much busier street, today was the first time I drove there! I did it! It's probably not a big deal to most but to be its a huge achievement and one step closer to being free. I'm so proud! I just wanted to share :)
