Are you familiar enough with what it is like having AvPD and social anxiety?

Here are a few scenarios that can trigger the symptoms:

- When driving there is a higher chance of exposure to people

- There is a higher chance that unknown can happen and you will be anxious

- You are worrying if you are driving too slow

- People beep from behind and you wonder whether there's something wrong with you

- Situation can happen when there are changes to route/construction and you won't know how to respond in order to get to your destination

- If someone bumps into you because you stopped fast on red light there can be a conflict where you and another driver will shout and will trigger social anxiety

And I could go on with this.
