I have been meaning to share this story with you guys for awhile, I just never got around to it.
At the beginning of my fall 2016 semester at Millersville I was terrified of public transportation. I had it in my head that I could not do it. So, in my conundrum, I posted to Facebook and asked for help. Needless to say, but the encouraging feedback I got welcome.
About a year later, today, I am writing this piece on a bus in Lancaster county. I am proud of myself for being able to do this. The new goal is to get my drivers license. Which is a hurdle I do not feel I can do on my own. With some help and encouragement, I think I could. I still need to get my permit, but I believe that I will be able to drive someday.
The biggest reason that I cannot drive at this time is because I have a panic attack when I get in the driver’s seat of any vehicle. I do not know why this is. Some might say I had a traumatic experience with a car, but I do not think that is the case.
On my mind, I feel like driving is something that you have to be responsible for. I do not want to hurt anyone by getting or causing an accident. That would weigh heavily on my mind. I feel like I need to be completely in control of my dear before I learn to drive.
Thank you for reading. I appreciate every one of you that reads my stories. Thank you so much!
