You need to be with friends and having some fun, socializing. You're young and should not be spending all your time alone and fearful.

I think it's great that you've developed your own relaxation techniques to calm yourself while walking the road, this is good. You're fighting back, and that's important. You have to try and rationalize your fear, although it is a un-rational fear. For example, you always worry while waking the road that you will faint and fall, but you have NEVER done this!
