As I was telling Candice today, I don't really like to post blog entries if I've been feeling bleh-ish. Last week I truly felt like I was going to have an anxiety attack...at least that's what I think it was, based on the symptoms I found on the mighty cyber bible known as Google.

I tend to freak out and stress over little things. Lately I've been feeling sad, frustrated, confused, stressed, disappointed, like a loser, etc. All these feelings have to do with either driving, my job hunt, my Etsy store or my husband. I'd rather not get into it right now though. I just hate feeling this way and want it to end soon.

On another note, I had a little "milestone" today. I put gas in the car all by myself for the first time. I couldn't even open the cap for the gas tank, but after many attempts I finally got it open. I know all this driving news is probably no big deal to most, but to me, driving is the scariest thing I have ever had to do... well, maybe besides marriage he he. I feel (and hope!) that both will one day be worth the hard work.

Driving can be frightening.

Take baby steps. Get out and go a little ways and then next time challenge yourself to go a little bit further.

If you're going to be "Wandering Nancy", then you've got to get in that car and do some wandering!

You can do it!! : )

I had a fear of driving and after a few attempts, I finally started actually driving right before I turned 22. You're not alone! It's not scary to me anymore! I love it. It became scary to me for a while...I was taking FemCon Fe (birth control) and it was making me anxious and aggravated about everything. I even had a panic attack. Stopped taking it over a month ago, and I love driving & life again. And I'm nice to my boyfriend again :)

If you ARE on the pill, that might be why you're feeling a bit off. If not, it may be stress or generalized anxiety...I don't really know about these things! I hope you feel better!

It's nice to know I'm not alone. I just didn't know it would be this hard or that it would take me this long to get comfortable.
