It's the combination of 11 herbs and spices that really make Chocolate-Milk fried feet finger-licking good!

Shouldn't that be toe-licking?

Just had a pre-bed poop and my butt screamed. Like actually screamed, not a fart or a squelch, it went "Eeeeek!" in a way that sounded genuinely pained, like a frightened human or a pig in an abattoir.

I have no idea how my butt made that awful sound but it was absolutely terrifying.

...and that is How I Feel Right Now, ask me anything

Just venting again, sorry that's all I seem to use this place for lately :|

I passed my driving test about 3 or 4 years ago and haven’t driven at all since. I get really anxious about it and I’ve forgotten a lot of things and I know I’m not a safe driver right now, so I booked an appointment for a refresher thing with an instructor. Did it today and it went terrible.

My driving was pretty bad, I know, that’s why I am paying this guy. I felt like every time I made a mistake he was judging me and making sure I felt shitty about it - like he basically wanted to rant about how I shouldn't be allowed to drive. I nearly had a panic attack about half way through, thought I would have to pull over but I was too embarrassed and he just kept poking at me without letting up. I tried to explain how nervous I was and he kept saying it was no excuse, like I should be better and I shouldn’t be making mistakes when I am literally paying him because I know I am so rusty and I know I need to practice before it’s safe for me to drive alone.

I’m still shaky from the panic and this was like three hours ago, the whole thing made me feel terrible and I kind of just never want to drive again, which was the opposite of what I was hoping for. I’m just really tired of feeling like a failure at everything and it seems like any time I try to do something to improve myself I just end up strawberry floating it up.

You aren't strawberry floating up min, you're trying to improve, that's a brilliant thing! You aren't a failure, that's the depression talking. You're awesome, and you need to remember that.

The instructor sounds like a prick, remember you're paying him, not the other way around. If he's being a bastard get rid of him and try someone else who may be more understanding.

And vent away, we don't mind one bit.

That driving instructor is a tosser Minoru. You're doing the responsible thing by brushing up on your driving with a teacher for a while rather than trying to wing it -- someone who berates you for that doesn't deserve your money. You should get a different instructor IMO.

Change instructor immediately.

1) His attitude will not help you focus on driving, it'll divert your attention to his behaviour and you could end up being stuck in this cycle for much longer than necessary, leaving you out of pocket and probably quite miserable.
2) Who wants to give money to pricks?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Thanks. You’re right, I think part of it’s the depression, which is why it hits so hard and I struggle to just shrug it off. It’s kind of hard to fight those feelings of failure when they have actual basis in fact and the depression and anxiety just make it worse. I've just been struggling with it a lot lately, and trying to get in a place where I can do things to help is really hard, so for this to go so badly was not really what I needed.

Yeah, that's what felt quite weird about it, like I am paying for this, when legally I don't actually need to, I'm obviously aware there is a problem and trying to correct it and he wasn't interested in giving me any credit for that, just kept making me feel bad that there was a problem at all.

You're right. I got stressed and instead of calming down as the lesson went on, I got worse - he even commented on it, and I'm like, gee, I wonder why. I definitely did not feel like paying him.

I will change instructor when I can get the nerve to try again. I might see if the guy who originally taught me is still around, he was nice. I’ll probably feel pretty crap going back and being like ‘yeah, I can’t remember how to drive’, but at least he should be more understanding.

Is there a friend or family member you trust who can help with this? Even if they take you to an industrial estate or car park at night and let you drive around to get the feel of being behind the wheel again, it might help out and be a bit more relaxed.

I haven't driven in over 4 years despite having a licence, I'm definitely going to have a few lessons if I ever need to start driving again.

That instructor just sounds like a dick, as everyone else said find someone else.

Not really. I tried to drive with my dad once just after I passed and that was stressful, less so than this, but I'd rather not again. There isn't really anyone else I can ask.

Yeah, I'd honestly rather just avoid it too, but at this point I feel like it's necessary for my independence. I rely on my dad for lifts as is, and if I’m looking for work, or even just some voluntary stuff or a hobby or something to help with my anxiety, I need to be able to drive myself and I need to not have to share everything I'm doing with my family. I'll find someone else, it's just been off putting and I haven't been in the best place to take that lately.

Maybe take up motorcycling instead.

But seriously, this place isn't anything if not a place to share how you F E E L so vent away. I can sympathise with the stress of driving with a parent. Also, I think driving is a scary thing, at least at first; the consequences can seem daunting. After I passed my test, I didn't get a car until 2 months later, and I was terrible at using this car since I was so used to my instructor's. A year and a half of consistent driving from then, denting my car from a tiny scrape in a car park, and mowing down a fence later, I finally felt absolutely confident with driving. Just go at your own pace.

On a side note, I'm feeling exhausted. Keep going to bed late cause I don't wanna wake up and go to work.
