You sound like me with the therapist debate. I go through periods when I also think that I can go it alone and get better on my own, but honestly, I do much better when I have a therapist helping me through. It's especially helpful when I'm going through a rough spot or setback, and I seem to do very well with the goal setting that my therapist and I work on. That's how I'm dealing with the driving. Since I quit driving 12 years ago, we are doing this in tiny, tiny steps. My last goal was to just sit in the car and visualize that I was driving somewhere, next will be to pull the car out of the garage, then to drive just down my street...etc. My fear is so great with driving that we have to take it slowly or I will give up again. My opinion would be to get a therapist, it can't hurt to try, and you may find that you progress much more quickly with help. I hope today's flight goes well for you!!!!
