Hi 240W. I'm so glad to hear you're changing careers! I would love to do that right now. I love animals and would love to work at the local Zoo. My husband supports me to get out of my current job so I hope that someday, a job will open up for me. What are you changing to and from?
I live in the Houston area and drive into downtown Houston every day. I used to dread it because of the traffic and all the crazy drivers. I finally just did it enough that I got used to it and it doesn't phase me anymore. I tell you, though, I was a nervous wreck for awhile in the beginning.
If you choose not to drive, is there a bus route you could take? A lot of my coworkers don't like to drive into the city so they take the bus.
I copied your post to here so you would meet more of the members. Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum. We are very glad to have you with us.
I was once in your position of caring for my Mother after my Father died and she lived 100 miles away so I understand some of what you are going through.
Stick with us and again a warm welcome.
H everyone. I am240w. I have had panic disorder for 20 years,and I'm still around having good days and bad. Today I go for an appointment for assistance and will get training for a new career. I am anxious about driving into the city so I'll be driven. Their is a lot on my plate right now and I'm looking after an elderly parent. It is hard to get people to understand my condition- sometimes I feel completely paralyzed with worry. I am still looking for soluyions.
