    I know this thread was posted almost 5 years ago but i was interested to see if you had any solutions as of yet?
    I am in the exact same boat. Its HORRIBLE. Im at university and I travel in everyday. The drive takes me between 35-60 minutes depending on traffic, and the early morning lectures the traffic is bad getting in. I have messed myself once and I fear that it will always do it now as my mind will hold on to that horrific moment. How can my mind control my body this way?
    I get a build up of panic and axiety throughout the journey and i will get to a point then its either make or break. sometimes i'll pull through it, sometimes i'll turn around, but on this occasion I powered through and then followed through

    I wish I didnt feel like this, I love my course, I'm studying to be a teacher. My panic is worsened by the thought that one day i can not just turn around and come home I have the responsibility of a job.

    If anyone knows of any solutions please help.
