The vast majority of anti-Obama sentiment seems to be based on disinformation, rumor-mongering and fear-mongering rather than on facts. Could THIS election help change America back to a culture built on honesty, trust, hope and building people up rather than tearing them down?
My grandsons are due to be taken abroad on holiday soon and the middle one (7) has expressed to me a fear of flying (maybe to do with things he has seen on the television).
I have told his parents and they say that he will be fine but I want to help prepare him so that he can relax and enjoy his holiday.
Does anyone know of any good books?
Also is it true that the air in an aeroplane is recirculated and what,if any,precautions can be taken so that young children don’t pick up a bug?
Mary – thank you for your answer but I think that the noise would make that worse for him and frighten him further (he is a very sensitive child).
And I certainly wouldn’t want to go to an airport uneccessarily these days – in fact I’ve never been to one yet and don’t intend to!.
I only wish they would stay here or go by boat,train or whatever.
Thank you very much gman818 – I am looking into it and hope I am in time !
I am having a really bad one at the moment and it feels like I can’t breathe properly. My chest and throat are so tight they are suffocating me and my heart is racing. I also can’t stop the tears from falling.
Just wondered if anyone has any good suggestions that may help, I seem to be getting more and more of them and they get worse. I feel so silly.
I am suffering from PTSD (complex traumas), Chronic Grief & Chronic Depression.
I’m 31 & hate driving. I remember being 15 & taking drivers ed class and this police man coming showing us all these AWFUL pictures of car accidents and honestly I’ve been scared to death since then. My husband drives all the time when he can. I usually drive on Tuesdays to take my oldest to our homeschool co-op for the day. On Tuesdays my stomach is so shaken that I have an awful upset stomach all day long.
I have been seen doctors before but really no help. I’ve been on panic attack and depression drugs, but none helped. I just hate driving.
I mainly drive when I have to for my kids. My fears are honestly hitting another car and causing TONS of dollars in damage, killing another person mainly my children & doing something stupid like getting pulled over.
Anyone else deal with this? I hate parking so I park far away from other cars, no way I will ever drive at night time.
Also anyone know if this can be passed down in the family? My grandmother never drove. When asked she said she could drive, but never did.
I really just want to know how common is this. I feel so alone with my fear of driving.
Well I just turned 20 and still haven’t plucked up the courage to learn to drive, irresponsible friends having minor crashes all over the place has been offputting. I’m just afraid I’ll completely blank through fear & crash or end up driving around the same roundabout until 2010 because I’m too afraid to turn off into the traffic. So do the instructors have complete control to prevent any fear related mishaps?
I like an house north of our major city, Atlanta, and I have this huge fear of driving on the interstate. I do ok if someone else drives, but if a big truck goes right beside on either side I freak out. & if 2 get on either side at the time I practically hold my breath until there is an opening again. Everything seems so close to the vehicle though. When I use mapquest, I always use the avoid highways option and go the longer route. Any suggestions?
So basically my story starts around 3 months ago, i got off work & to my suprise my mom bought me a car! it wasn’t brand new or anything it was a 2001 nissan sentra, pearl grey, i loved it but even though i am 19, i didn’t have my license yet, in fact i had never been behind the wheel, but i conquered my fear and took driver’d ed and my instructor was impressed told my i was a natural. I arranged to get my license the following monday but later on that day i decided i should get some practice and wrecked it in a parking lot on my way to work. Horrible, worst day of my life cost me 00 to replace the bumper and some new parts ridiculous, 1 month later my sister got into an accident of her own, i was with her so you can imagine how traumatized i am, unbelieveably 2 weeks later after picking my sister up from work it starts STORMING outside (p.s im for mew orleans, below sea level) my sisters driving and she drove us right into a pool sized puddle that floods my car not to the point of
totaled, but now im terrified of driving i’ve been in 3 accident in the past 3 months and it seems that it happend everytime i decided to drive on my own.
people are always zooming around me and im completely paranoid the whole time, i drive like a paranoid patty & i have a lot of thing to take car of in the morning but i don’t know if i have the balls, yet this defeats the purpose of having a car, i dont know what to do…
Firstly, thankyou everyone for your imput, i just want remind those of you who answered that i only caused one of these accident i was just in all 3 of them which i why im so scared to drive. im not a bad driver im just paranoid i drive slow which is why people are always zooming around me but they need to deal im not risking another accident!
