Ugh! So I was selected by my principal to represent our school at meeting at the School Board to discuss the district's current learning schedule and core curriculum.....well, it was down town and I HATE driving down town....
I know how to get to the School Board from my house, but I didn't know how to get there from my school....I swear I live in one of the most "difficult to navigate" cities in the country.....anyway....I hate getting lost....it's gives me the worst anxiety!!!
So anyway, I asked one of my co workers to write out VERY DETAILED directions so that I wouldn't get lost....it should've taken me about 10 minutes to get there, but I left 30 minutes early "just in case" ......well what do ya know....I got lost....and not just kinda lost, but SUPER lost.....I started freaking out and crying because down town is such a BAD area and I wouldn't dare get out of my car and ask for directions....so I called DH, but since I didn't know where I was he couldn't tell me how to get where I needed to go.... It was so bad....
I ended up driving around for an HOUR The meeting was supposed to last from 1-2:30.....I got there at 1:30 and they ended the meeting at 1:40 It wasn't even worth all the effort I put in just trying to get there
At least I got to come home for a little bit before I have to leave for my 2nd job
Oh, Brandi!!! That is my worst fear when I travel. I'm so sorry you experienced this. I hope they understood your plight. You poor dear. Rest easy and try to get that heart rate back down and the oxygen levels back up

OMG I totally understand city driving fears! I feel the same way. I DO NOT drive downtown unless I have to and there is no way around it. I hate getting lost and I hate one way streets. Our downtown is really confusing to me and not the best place to be in after dark.
How frustrating to finally get there and then have to leave. I would have had a really good cry after that one

On 1/31/12 at exactly 16 weeks pregnant Noah came too soon. He was our 7th loss
If you would like to see pictures of my sweet (but tiny) boy they can be viewed at www.caringbridge.org/visit/noahdarrohn they aren't the easiest pictures to look at but I am willing to share them with anyone who would like to see them <3
Oh yeah....there was tons of crying!! Even once I got on a street where I knew where I was going and was FINALLY gonna get to the School Board, I was still crying and DH was like, "why are you crying?" and I was like, "I don't know!!" He tried to reassure me and say that everything was fine and that I knew where I was going...but I was still bawling uncontrollably.....
I feel like my hormones are raging out of control....I've had panic attacks before, that one was the worst one to date....
hugs!! i'm sorry! i'm super bad with directions and really really bad in any kind of down town setting - i always have to leave really early to allow myself to get lost at least once. I'm sorry it was such a rough afternoon!
I'm sorry, I hate driving when it is super busy or a place I'm not familiar with. I have SATNAV/GPS system that has really helped with everything, I would recommend one, even though the voice gets annoying
