Driving
« on: October 27, 2021, 09:54:47 AM »
Hi, I wanted to ask if there is anyone else which feels really unconfortable when driving a car in full Pois. Honestly with slowed down reflexes, difficulties in concentrating and sometimes very strong depression I feel like I should really avoid it, for the everyone's sake( unfortunately there are times in which I just need to use the car). Also, maybe for anxiety or adrenaline, I feel like my brain fog get even worse by driving,(mainly in the 2-3 days following the emission).Is there someone else which have this kind of problem?

When my POIS was worse I did not drive (I live in a city with good public transport) but I can imagine it causes problem.
I remember then light sensitivity was a big problem (need sunglasses and/or hat)

When searching for "driving" here in forum, there is at least 3-4 people with this problem, so you're not alone.

When I have POIS I just think about driving without thinking about anything else around me.
I am aware that the possibility of crashing increases. Even after days without having an orgasm I feel bad about what I have to take clonazepham to stabilize my emotions because on the street you should feel good when driving. If you feel unwanted, you can cause an accident.
I recommend not driving when you feel weak and helpless.
Imagine 40 years in jail for killing someone with POIS. Damn life!

I don't drive at all as I feel I'm a dangerous driver even with mild symptoms while abstinent. I often struggle with reaction time and multi-tasking ability, both of which are obviously crucial. When I was practicing for my driver's licence, my instructor was surprised at my driving, because I could drive flawlessly one session and dangerously absentmindedly the next. In retrospect I see that that was just symptom variations.

EDIT: Also, if I drive and I feel a little symptomatic, that increases my stress level which in turn amplifies my cognitive symptoms.
