A neighbor asked me to travel with her to her daughters home to deliver some goods. I agreed. I thought her daughter lived close by, I was not told where she lived when we started out, I just assumed. After driving 20 miles on the highways I asked where we were going. The location was then disclosed.... 80 miles from where we lived and far out in the country. I froze. It was never disclosed we were going to be gone this far. I am disabled and have neurological conditions that make me ill when traveling in the car for long periods of time. The neighbor is 84 years old (I'm 66) and the car seems just as old and here we are racing on the super highways weaving in and out playing chicken with the semi's. Then we were off the highways and onto back country roads for the remainding 30 miles. She said nothing, we did not talk. She's usually pretty talkative. I felt not only physically ill but emotionally frightened, to frightened to say anything, I was paralyzed. I knew nothing about the neighborhoods we were in. We finally arrived at her daughters home, a home I really did not want to go into. I sat and listened to idle chatter until it was time to leave. But she wanted to keep driving around this neighborhood pointing out different businesses and places she knew in her past. We stopped for gas and I was asked to get out and put gas in her car. The sun was setting, we had already been gone 4 hours. Then she chose a different way back, or so I was told. As we traveled, I kept asking for her to pull off at restaurants where I could revive myself in the bathrooms. I kept an eye on the highway signs to see in which direction we were heading. Eventually we crossed over a bridge I was familiar with and I knew I was heading home. When we finally got home, we had been gone 8 hours. She never thanked me. When I asked her why she needed me for this long ride, she said it was important that I come along just in case.... but she would never finish her sentence. I have never experienced feeling abducted or trapped in my life, but this came pretty close. She lives in the same senior building as I do, two doors down from me and I don't know how to go forward with her after this. Needless to say, my PTSD has been extremely activated and I know it's going to take awhile to come down from this experience. I have lost all trust in her. Thank you for reading this scary experience.
