I bet he won't add you because he has something pervy on his profile or something embarrassing like that lol. Come to think of it I don't have any active "friends" on here either.

I have a bit of a problem, and I'm kind of afraid to admit it, but i'll say it anyway.
Here goes....I'm 19 years old and STILL can't drive a car. T__T
My parents tell me it's because I'm too immature (which doesn't make sense in my opinion) and that I need to be more mature in order to drive.
Well, I try that, but I have a hard time doing so. It's not that I act like a baby and throw myself on the ground crying or anything like that. It's just that sometimes I can't handle situations well.
But most people my age drive, and now my younger cousin is starting to drive, and I can't help but feel jealous of those I know around me who can drive a car.
I'll be going to college soon as well as a job, so I think driving would help out a lot. I'm sick of bumming rides from my parents.
I want to prove to them that I can be able to drive. I know it's dangerous behind the wheel blah blah blah, and I realize that! But I am a very cautious person. I have never even had a serious injury before. I have never broken a bone.
I think I am capable enough to pay attention to the road, signs, other drivers around me, as well as myself.
So how can I convince my parents to drive? This has been going on for about 3-4 years now. Nothing I do seems to be working.
Thanks to whoever helps.

I am writing a book, but worry if people will actually want to read it with it's blend of myth, sci-fi, humor, tragedy, parental deprivement and potential literally split personalities.

I suffer from apocalypto-phobia (I have since I was 8) and feel scared about some political terror occurring later this year, how do I escape the horror of doomsday when its everywhere?

Also, hear a baby crying in my mind that needs parental attention a lot, but I feel ashamed that I'm stuck in sort of a flux between being an adult and a child that has weaknesses, hints on how to be more balanced?

Driving skill has nothing to do with maturity, however it does have a lot to do with confidence. It is also true that in general confidence increases with age. This might be what your parents are trying to say, but trying to spare your feelings. Aren't the 'rents a great bunch? Or perhaps they are worried you aren't taking driving seriously enough? Driving is very dangerous as they're many complete morons on the road. My nickname for cars when I started driving was 'metal box of death' seriously.

If any of your cousins are male be aware that us males generally have a massively inflated ego that allows over-confidence at young ages. Some call it arrogance, I call it Team Dai-Gurren Manly Spirit!

In any case the key to good driving is to remain calm at all times and never panic. If you get flustered because you have stalled, and it feels like you're holding up the world, you need to remember that it doesn't matter. Driving isn't a competition, if you get meeped by another car and you've got a giant 'L' on the car the meeper is clearly a massive $%£% and deserves to wait while you get your bearings.

So in essence, try to convince them you know the dangers and won't panic. In fact, learning to drive might actually make you appreciate the dangers involved more! Like myself (I am a cautious driver too.) For the 'rents, your safety is paramount, so I have confidence (Manly Spirit!) this approach will work for you.

Good luck!

Everyone handles the grieving process differently. You should realize that it's pretty normal for the loss of a loved one to put strain on the griever's personal relationship(s).

Communication is the key. Depending on the person you are, you just might need some time by yourself to wrap your mind around the tragedy and recuperate. Or you might be the type of person who will want to keep their family and friends around them to give them a sense of routine and "normal" every day life moving on.

Whatever you may need, in order to avoid misunderstanding and hurt feelings, you have to communicate to the other people in your life that you're struggling with your personal loss, and let them know what they can do to make the healing easier. Let them know it has nothing to do with them, and that you're not avoiding them or mean anything personal against them, it's merely your reaction to the death of a loved on.

Oh nice, that's really impressive! I've always wanted to write a book myself, but I don't have the English mastery, or the dedication, to really follow through on such a massive project. I respect what you're undertaking here. Although authors do have to keep in mind their target audience, and therefore cater to some demographic, I think it's more important for you to think of it as something you're doing for yourself.

If you enjoy writing, and you're writing about something you really care about and believe in, I think there will definitely be a group of people out there who will put forth the time, effort, and money to read what you have to write. To be honest, mythology, science fiction, humor, tragedy, parental deprivement, split personalities sounds REALLY interesting to me.

As for apocalypto-phobia, I think it's very difficult to address because by definition phobias aren't based in any real reason or logic. I have a phobia of heights myself, and while I do some extreme sports, hike up mountains, etc. I usually don't get scared. But when I go up to the top of a skyscraper and look down the side, I start having a panic attack. My mind logically realizes that the skyscraper is very structurally sound and the rails will prevent me from toppling, but I still experience panic.

I think to deal with your fear of an apocalyptic event, you just need to condition yourself slowly to cope with it and take little baby steps. Start off by facing one of the environmental triggers for your apocalypto-phobia and then become familiar and comfortable with it so that you can move on to the next environmental trigger. For instance, I realized that if I looked out the first story window of a skyscraper it's totally easy, and if I gradually increase my height, keeping my perspective, the top seems a lot more manageable and less scary.

Hmm, if you're hearing a baby crying in your mind, physically, it could be a hallucination. If you believe a baby is crying out for you, but it's not "physically hearing" then it could be a delusion. Either way, you might need to see a counselor or psychiatrist.

As for being stuck between a child and adult, I can really relate to that. I don't think it's about something being wrong with you or me, but more about accepting who we are and realizing that people mature at different rates, people's perceptions of how mature they are change over time, and the way we view ourselves has a huge bearing on our self-esteem and confidence.

Keeping rested and staying hydrated is really the best way to go. Cold medications, cough drops, vapor rub, hot tea, etc. can help alleviate some of the unpleasant symptoms.

But definitely try to sleep, your body repairs itself the most when you're asleep, and will be able to fully dedicate itself to a strong immune response against those pesky pathogen invaders.
