Pressured to mention death

Mother was afraid of cars. She was so tense and panicky, I just wanted to holler “DEATH”. Just to clear the air.

Death - the one certainty in life we can all look forward to. Eternal oblivion. Sounds good to me. Hate life on this rotating rock.

I’m afraid of cars too.

I’m my mother’s daughter about them. I find it difficult to relax in them, now. Can you relax as a passenger or driver?

I’ve tried driving and I just can’t. I feel unsafe behind the wheel. I rely on my partner to drive me. Often as a passanger I sit in the back seat cause I feel safer there. But I get bad intrusive thoughts in cars.

I know where you’re coming from. I was in a bad accident when I was 16. Mother’s fears came true.

My parents are in their 70’s now and I drive them everywhere. My parents have a car but my mom will only drive locally if she absolutely has too, I don’t think she enjoys it. My dad has his license and can drive if he has too but he gets low blood sugar that comes on quickly and his hearing is getting worse so he doesn’t drive very often either.
