Okay, so I'm 16 1/2 and driving. let me ust say I HATE IT. I feel so mentally incapable and inadequate, I always say I can barely blink and stay in my own lane, which I'm exaggerating, but still, its so overwhelming having to watch what I'm doing, and worrying about other shit everyone else is doing, oh my god, My mom gets so mad at me, because I hate it, and always have her drive. I know I have to learn and I know how to, but I really think I might not be ready. I just don't think I have the capacity for that kind fo responsibility yet... al least with other people's lives for gods sake. She says I need practice then I'll get better at it and I'm just thinking, "and in the mean-time?" in the mean time while I'm waiting to get good, I could kill someone! ._. I'm so lost, and frustrated and I just don't WANT to drive, nor CAN I, I simply can't.
I guess what I'm saying, is, how can I not screw up... I mess everything up, and this is a huge thing to risk messing up... I just... ahh. ._.

I think on top of you psyching yourself out over it, your mom isn't helping things by getting impatient with you during the process. For a big responsibility like that, it understandably takes a little getting used to. But when you're doing it under conditions that aren't making you calm and allowing you to learn what you need to know, then you're just spinning your tires (ha, it must be Punday).
Do you have anyone else that could teach you? Perhaps your dad? Siblings? Someone you work with?
