PTSD and Driving

It's not nice!  There is not sugar coating it.  Today I freaked and had a panic attack and any PTSD sufferer will tell you that being stuck in a car with your driving instructor and some random person in the back who you're dropping home after his lesson on a busy road is not a good place to have a panic attack.  Especially when your driving instructor doesn't know you have PTSD triggered by being in a car crash.  There was shaking, crying and shouting. It wasn't pretty.  And that is what happens when you haven't driven in nearly 3 weeks because you're driving instructor cancels your lesson and you try driving while very tired and after having 3 weeks of near on daily panic attacks again.  I have work tomorrow so lets hope I can have a day without one tomorrow!
