Support Group for Fearful Drivers?

Happy 2006!!

Is learning to drive or improving your driving skills at the top of your 2006 New Year's Resolutions? This blog is dedicated to those with a fear of driving.

I recently received this note from a thoughtful reader:

I have a tremendous fear of driving," she wrote. "This seems to run in my dad's family. In my case, I think it is linked to my ADD."

"Do you know," she asked, "if there is a group online dealing with this subject?"

More comments from the reader:

"I think in my case," she wrote. "I have problems with the following: 1)TERRIFIED of high speed driving (feel less in control) 2) have problems in processing all the different stimuli and get over-stimulated with too many different 'inputs' and 3)have trouble integrating many different tasks, eg. changing lanes, watching the blind spt, keeping the steering on track etc."

Thanks for writing!
If you have any information about support groups for fearful drivers or information about ADD and driving, please send me an email or leave a comment on my blog.

Happy New Calendar Year!!!

I don't really have much in the way of resources, but that description sounds *exactly* like me. People have a particularly difficult time understanding the overload and integration issues, I've found.

I am so fearful of driving..I know I lost my job because I can't drive. I am having a hard time finding a job in my field because I don't drive. I know this is frustrating for my husband. Every year I say this summer I will get my driver's licence. I really need to get over this phobia.
