“I was almost crippled by fear driving on wet roads and the stronger the rain the worse it got. This came from an accident I had about 7 years ago where I aqua planed on a wet road and crashed into a huge boulder. Every time the road was wet I’d break into cold sweats, crying, pulling over and not driving more than 70kmh (far from ideal driving behaviour on a wet road) which is far cry of what I am normally like on the roads, confident.
Then last winter I noticed that I was no longer reacting that, all of a sudden I was back to my usual cautious (as you do) but confident driving on wet roads, rain or no rain.
I know that I lost control of my car, skidded this way then that and ended up in a huge broad slide hard against a massive rock but all of a sudden it’s just a memory.
It no longer triggers fear, nervousness, anxiety and panic in me. I can speak about it and I am not affected where I used to not even mention it as it used to play through my head while driving again and again like a movie bringing all the emotions and fear with. Poof…..gone….like magic! I love peiec.’
