Panic attacks while driving!

I am terrified of driving cars. I don't have much experience driving (lived in a large city and used public transportation until recently). I find myself thinking that I will get into a car accident every time I get into the car. It is especially bad on the highway, and I even experience shortness of breath and major anxiety while on the highway. Help! [more inside]

Backseat Driver

I've been driving a car for about a decade now, and it's suddenly occurred to me that I'm now completely paranoid about anyone else driving me somewhere. I'm constantly checking the mirrors while they drive, and getting stressed because I think they should be braking sooner or driving in a different lane. It even happens when I catch a bus. Has anyone else experienced this? How did you get over it?
