I’ve once again gotten to the point that there isn’t a lot for me to gain in therapy. Things are still hard, I still have a lot of triggers and terror while driving, but the triggers are generally fewer and the terror is less prevalent and I’ve learned to manage all of it to the point that I’m no longer avoiding getting in the car. I’m managing, and managing well. The new reality is that driving is hard, I will have symptoms to manage for the foreseeable future and I spend a lot of time and energy on trying to handle what goes on in my head.
But maybe less as time goes on and I have more practice with it.
And since there isn’t a lot left for me to do in therapy for this round, after a couple of months I’m back out again and grateful that it was an option for me.
