This isn't the first time this sort of thing has happened; back in 2013 I had a major panic attack while driving on the freeway and I ended up not driving at all for like three years after that. At the time I lived in a part of Seattle with pretty good transit access though, and even then that wasn't enough for a lot of my social needs.
I did eventually get past my driving anxiety and got comfortable with driving again. Which is why I felt okay moving to White Center.
And then three months later, this happened.
At least I'm able to drive 1 mile to get groceries or whatever but even then I feel anxious and uncomfortable doing that.
I don't remember how I got past my driving anxiety last time and I'm not sure that would even work this time, since the underlying cause is this chronic dizziness.
