As we enter the turning lane, I can almost visualize the color and speed of the SUV approaching. I can hear the sound of the metal as the two cars collide. As the vision clears, my hands unclench and my heart resumes beating at a comfortable pace, I begin to realize that neither I nor my friend is in any danger. The accident that I just witness and experienced happened almost a month ago and the episode that just played out in my mind was what some might refer to as a flashback. Since my accident I have experience numerous flashbacks, all pertaining to the day my life changed. I no longer feel safe. That SUV haunts me, and just as that faithful day it is ready to crash into me over and over again without warning. I wonder if anyone else has experienced flashbacks and even more important I am interested in finding out if they go away.
