I always have the fear of getting lost and not knowing where I am because I am lousy at navigating especially a nights.
I actually got disoriented early this morning on my way back
after I took my niece to the bus stop at 4.30 am.
When I was coming back I miscalculated the stop light and did not realised that I missed my turn .
When I realized I could not turn back so I kept on driving until I got back my bearing.I started panicking because I was going into a lonely and dangerous area.
Then I found a convenient stop and turn back .I was scared but I pulled myself together and found the right turn and got home safely.
Something similar happened to me years ago only this time I was walking. When I realized I did not know where I was I tried asking someone but when I opened my mouth it was dry and no sound came out so I just continued walking until I found a land mark I knew.
