    Progress Tracking

    Another update: I went to several formal driving lessons with someone who specializes in anxious/phobic drivers, and the good news was that it helped me remember and review some driving skills. The bad news is that she and I came to the conclusion that the skillset isn't really the issue... basically that as long as I could stay calm, I could drive normally. But the staying calm is a whole other can of worms. She suggested hypnosis, having had a friend that had some success going that route, so I have my first hypnosis session tomorrow! Hopefully it'll help and I can go back to the driving lessons with some new weapons in my arsenal. Edit: and I finally own my own car! So I'm really hoping that will help me feel "at home" in the vehicle and sort of... allowed to make mistakes in it...

    Update: I did end up finding a driving school that specializes in helping people with phobias. I had my first lesson about a week ago and another one coming up next Sunday. I drove normally (ish) for about an hour and then got really overwhelmed and burst into tears! Then I was so stressed that I felt basically useless for like, three days afterwards. But we'll see how the second lesson goes! Maybe it'll get easier. If anyone else is in the Bay Area, http://www.fearlessdriver.com/ is the driving school. I really like my instructor, she's really understanding and used to be afraid of driving too, which is a nice success story to see. I'm nervous that working on this will tax my resources way too much, but at the same time it's nice to have some professional support and not just be trying to figure out how to solve this problem on my own.

  9. Looking beyond the picky eating of childhood, researchers looked at this behavior in college students. Self-identified picky eaters ate significantly less fiber and vegetables and reported greater levels of social phobia than non-picky eaters, according to a new study in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, published by Elsevier.
