Today, my anxiety was so bad that when I was riding my bike on the side walk and two pedestrians came walking in the opposite direction, I got so nervous about having to go between them or accidentally hitting them that I fell off my bike, into a bush. FML

Running over them would be just fine.

I hope you're okay... But next time just stop. Or scream "Aaaahhh" the entire time. They'll move. Trust me.

too bad...be confident...you alrite???

OP should be fine, they were riding on the sidewalk so they probably weren't going mach 5, and OP has anxiety issues anyway so they probably fell into the bush at about stoping speed.

I've done that, except it wasn't because of anxiety, it was because the fuckers wouldn't move...

too bad...you can't...write a...proper comment.

26- Cads comment was aimed at number 1. I feel bad for people with anxiety attacks. From the couple I've experienced, I know they're shitty. Sorry OP, just read the FML about the dude peeing on the bug. That'll make u feel better.

Pls op never EVER get a drivers license

Pls op never EVER get a drivers license

Well...problem solved.

I thumbed this one up. On a bike you could just fall over if you need to bail. I would hate to see the outcome if OP was operating a 1 ton steel brick with no "fall over" option.

Sorry, I forgot how the replies work on this site, I just woke up. I was referring to 61. I tried to edit but ran out of time.

Nobody's said it yet? Okay! Alright*

Man, I'm so sorry OP! I have generalized anxiety disorder so I know your pain. At least you don't get so anxious you can almost faint on command. :/ It'll be okay dearie! I have hope for you!

Just calm down, and go around them

If you have anxiety you can't just "calm down"

Well, you can 'calm down', but it generally takes more than five seconds (and I'm being generous here!)

Next time just brake and think about it or wait for them to pass you.

Easier said than done for people with anxiety, 3.

Running over them would be just fine.

Next time try to pull brakes if u r nervous lol

Hopefully you didn't follow up with making it look like it didn't happen or you did it on purpose, not sure how you could pull that off. Also I hope it wasn't a prickly one!

You're not the only one! I've been in that situation before and it's super awkward so I usually just ride on the side of the road when I see people coming. Try that, OP!

Why the thumbs down? It's a reasonable solution. A lot of places don't allow cyclists on the sidewalks anyway.

...Problem Solved?

HAH! I see what you did there!

or you could have went on the street real quick?

Oh my gosh, lol. But anyways hope you are not heavily injured!
