I did not see him, I was obeying the law, and there were many lives changed that night. I don't sleep well and I struggle to forgive myself. I have PTSD and anxiety. I want to say I did not post here to...
  • I'm not sure if this is the right place to post but I just had surgery to reconstuct my ACL 3 weeks ago. I am having a very hard time coping (I already had depression and anxiety) and feel very discouraged because I am behind in my rehab and have no idea why. I do everything the PT says, even though it is excrutiating but still it seems I am behind per my doctor's outline. On top of all this my...

    Lost My Family

    Hi, I'm new here. Last September my husband and I were driving to Savannah from New Jersey to start a new life. We were in a fatal car crash that killed him and 4 of our cats. Only I and my one cat survived. I have tried to start a new life for myself and joined a widow and widowers support group for a while, which helped a great deal. I have not met any other survivors of fatal car accidents,...

    Met with an accident

    0
    2 months back, I met with an accident. It affected my right shoulder. There is a fracture in the joint. The doctor told me that a surgery is required. After that, I will have to take rest for few months. My friend told me to file a complaint, that will help to get the insurance claim to handle hospital charges. Also, I read some legal procedures here https://campisilaw.ca/car-accident-lawyers/ ....

    Extreme Anxiety

    I was in a major head on collison two years ago, then rear ended three months after that.  Most of my physical injuries have healed, but my anxiety is out of control.  I am always nervous in the car unless there is zero traffic.  I can tell it's really starting to take a toll on my husband.  I don't want to say I have something as extreme as PTSD, but I do wonder if I do have something like...
