The more I don’t drive and know that many drivers are driving distractedly, the more I just don’t want to be a passenger.
My bf is seeing his mother up in Accrington and he wants me to come along. Already I am refusing to go by long distance train because a) it is expensive b)I feel claustrophobic in trains so we are going up by coach which means I will end up going by National Express and then his mother will pick me up from Preston (fortunately it is only 15 miles from her house from the coach station). However, because I don’t like going as a passenger I have asked my bf if we can avoid the motorway. It is bad enough being on the road and having little control over my life but it is the best I can come up with.
Then for 2 days we will be going round by car. How great is that? The idea of it makes me feel anxious but hopefully the roads won’t be too busy and we will avoid the rush hour. I wish I could just get about by train or bus, or hire a bike but no, his mother is a motorist and loves driving so we have to go by car.
I am going to go to the chemist soon to find some natural alternatives to valium.. see, that’s how anxious I am! I like being on bicycle because I feel more in control.
