Because of my agoraphobia and social anxiety, I have a lot of trouble doing things alone. Walking alone around my neighborhood just doesn't seem possible because I feel too vulnerable. Nor does it seem possible that I'll ever get comfortable driving alone. Both seem quite scary to me, but I'm kinda thinking driving would be the better option for me.. but I'm not sure. I'm not even sure if these negative thoughts about driving are actually caused by my anxiety issues (agoraphobia/socialanxiety) or if it's completely normal to feel the way I do, especially for a beginner driver.
I figure that at least with driving I will have my car to go to if I freak out in public, and it feels safer. But at the same time.. I will still be alone and then I'd have to deal with driving.. which I'm afraid of. But then if I can't do that, my other option is taking a bus. And I hate the idea of that. It would still involve walking, plus the thought of a bus dropping me off then leaving me, seems scary. I'm not even sure how the bus here works and how often it comes by, it could be hours before I'm able to get a ride back.
So with all that, it really seems that the best option would be to drive. Does anyone else have experience with this? Do you find it easier/better to drive, walk, or take a bus?
