“Understanding and accepting the phobia that I feel driving on the highways has helped me to reduce my anxiety level when I am actually driving. Suddenly, and I don’t know why, I am able to drive again, driving in places where I wouldn’t think I was going to be able to drive again, like taking the expressway or driving on the highway where everything started eight or nine years ago.
“Now I understand and accept that I will have this condition all my life and I don’t feel guilty about it anymore. Now I am able to speak about it with my family and friends in a natural way because finally I understood that I don’t have to be ashamed about it.
“I really want to thank you for all your work and all the encouraging words you have told me in the last months. You know, I didn’t believe too much in psychologists. But I learned that it is not good to have prejudices and I hope to remember that for all aspects of my life. You have really helped me. I know this phobia thing will always be there, but I am not afraid of it anymore and the feeling is great!”
