Re: Does OCD has any effect on your driving?
I can't drive at all, have never been able to. I could in an emergency, I suppose and have tried to learn, but I have no license, and when I try to drive I get so nervous I can hardly think straight and I make stupid mistakes. There are too many things to thinking about at once, so many things coming at you. The mirrors, the other cars, where the car is in the lane, the speedometer, the rear view, the lights...there's no time to check everything and a tiny mistake could kill someone. So...I give up. I don't even try anymore. There are a lot of things I'd like to do if I could drive, but it's just too horrible to think about. I get a headache and dizzy just thinking about it.
