It sounds like you're feeling overwhelmed.

I think you should listen to your therapist to the extent possible. It's important to keep yourself (and others) safe. The pdoc might have a suggestion.

Writing lists does help, although I often forget to write stuff down on it, check things off of it, or bring my list with me. :(

You remember your grounding techniques, I'm sure. Orient yourself to your physical world. This is extra easy when you're driving, because that's part of good driving anyway. Feel the steering wheel in your hand, feel the road conditions through your rear end, scan the road ahead of you and remember to check your rear view mirror as well. If you find yourself drifting off in your thoughts, bring yourself back to the present by focusing on your route, noticing the vehicles around you, (or better yet in front of you) etc.

But do call your pdoc. He might want to prescribe something short term. Provigil helps me focus.
