SO proud of myself!!!!!!

I can't even explain how good it feels to be driving!!!   My anxiety is slowly starting to get better.  I have suprised myself and actually went on busy roads, over several bridges and on a small section of highway, I have got out of my comfort zone and the feeling is exhilarating!!  I am still nervous at times but it is not near as bad as it used to be.  I can go over 20mph and not have a damn heart attack lol, I actually had to go 65 on the highway and it wasn't as bad as I anticipated it to be.


I went to the cemetary yesterday to tell my grandma about my driving.  I do feel like she is helping me conquer this and I know she is looking out for me.  It makes me sad though, she isn't here to see this.  She wanted me to try and get my permit but I always too scared.  I know she would be so proud of me.  I want to go show her my permit and tell her, "Im doing it grandma, I am driving." and I can't.


My goal is to get my license sometime within the next month, I haven't set an exact date yet though.

I'm just so excited about this, I have been so scared for so long, it feels amazing to be conquering one of my biggest fears!! :)

That's Great! I wish I could, I'm 27 and I have never driven a car, But I hoping that maybe by next summer I will be able to over come my fear and drive! =) I may not know you personally but I'm very proud of you! It's a huge deal and I'm sure your grandma is proud too!

good
