Fear of Flying and Driving

You dream of living a “normal” life.

There are so many places you want to go and things you want to do.

But how can you when just thinking about driving to work or taking a trip on a plane, creates such panic?

Your chest tightens, and your breath becomes shallow. It feels like the world is closing in on you, and all you want to do is escape.

It’s been this way ever since the event.

Flashbacks of your accident overwhelm you and make you feel like it would be easier never to get in a car or plane again.

You tell yourself to just get over it. You see everyone else living their lives with such ease and wonder why you struggle the way you do.
