Fear is one of those things that you have to face immediately after something happens. When I used to play hockey (I was a goalie - talk about fear...), if I got hurt playing, I'd have to start taking shots again as soon as I could get back up, cuz I knew that if I didn't, I'd be too scared and shy to be able to do my job. I know that driving tends to lead to more serious injuries than hockey, but I think that getting back out there asap is key to helping get thru the fear.

I guess it's also important to remember why we do it. For me, I just love to motor. Just the feel of the pedal and shift lever with the car is what keeps me happy, so I do it for pure enjoyment. Sometimes I have to remind myself that it's not a race (cuz if it was, I'd be much more serious), but a chance to relax, and after that, life is good again...
