Since I was in middle school I didn't like waiting to cross the street, especially at a busy intersection. I wasn't worried about getting hit by a car - we had crossing guards to make sure of that - but just the big open ***** of the street. Even if it's a small street I don't like it - I don't like the openness.
I was in a large city in my area with my fiance and some friends a couple of months back, and we had to stop at a busy intersection while the light was red. I became nervous, shaky, had sweaty hands, and grabbed my fiance's hand. He understands that I have anxiety and is very supportive. When the light was green I basically pulled him across the street. Yet when we got to the arena (we were going to a sporting event) I had no problem crossing the street with the crowd of people. If I'm alone I get nervous, but if I'm in a crowd it's all right.
Does anyone else have this problem?
