Most of these simple phobias ( we all them simple because they're of one thing, not because they're easy to have !) respond really well to proper treatment. CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) from a skilled psychologist can be extremely helpful, and some meds also used to treat depression can also be helpful. If possible, avoid taking the sedativwe tranquillizers of the Valium / Ativan family, as they can cause dependency and reduce yourt driving safety significantly.
