Good for you for getting out of a toxic living situation. No wonder you have anxiety. I would recommend seeing a counselor. They can help you figure out ways to deal with your anxiety.
I understand how you feel about the driving. Many of us that have anxiety also have problems with driving and getting panic attacks.

If you can see a psychiatrist do it.  Constant anxiety with panic episodes wears you down and depression follows.  
I have had major panic attacks while driving for many years.  
There are medications which help get it under control, and therapy to help with coping techniques.
