Four-year-olds can do it. Grannies can do it. My mom can do it. I could do it myself thirty years ago, but it isn't true that you never forget. How can I re-learn to ride a bike?

I've searched here and googled extensively. My bike is the right size for me, the seat is all the way down, I have a big parking lot to ride around in. I've tried just starting to pedal and scooting around without pedaling. My big problem is that as soon as I get up any speed, I start to panic and end up falling, and every time this happens I get more anxious until even thinking about getting on the bike freaks me out. Any last-chance advice before I give up and haul the damned thing back to the bike store?
