Fear of flying? Nope. Fear of driving!

I have a confession to make. I do not possess a driver's license! Many years ago, I did try to learn. I took lessons with a driving school but then, during the actual driver's test, I froze and failed. Failed miserably. In fact, I was not ever able to master the necessary manuevers like parallel parking and U-turning. I could drive straight well enough, and steer well enough, but the more delicate maneuvers filled me with anxiety. Highway driving, fast driving, sharing the road with tractor trailers -- horrors! I hated all that. And I never did take the test a second time. I gave up. Out of fear.

Maybe if I had recourse to the program at http://www.beatdrivinganxiety.com/, I would have mastered my fears and achieved a license to drive. I feel it may be too late for me to benefit, and, in any event, we live in the city and do not own a car. But if your life is being limited by a fear of driving, then why not check out this website? You will even have a chance to win $150 Paypal cash -- just for visiting the site and entering the Rafflecopter. The contest runs through June 1, 2013.
