Congrats, that deserves a gold medal (okay I've been watching too much olympics!)..
You are so right, to have given in to panic and walked out would have chalked one up for panic. I don't think I could have sweated it out for forty minutes though. That is amazing. What's your secret???
You did great......and no you did not take a huge step backwards, you just had a panic attack and you got through it. I am so proud of you but remember it is ok to have a tough day and we all do so no beating yourself up.
I say a little pray everytime I head out on the freeway, the pray is for the other drivers............ I do not want to cause any situation due to my issues. So I get in the car and keep on driving up town which takes me about 35 minutes and I turn on my Cirrus Satelite station and listen to the comedy channel. If I am laughing I feel more relaxed.
Once on the road I will not turn back. It is at home that I have the tendency to panic and want to hide and not go out on that freeway.
You did super, and you may have set the world record for sprinting from a pharmacy.
