I have been on here only for 1 day but i was hoping for some advice.. i had a car accident where i blew a tire and rolled down a gully into a tree.. i have sketchy memories of this as i passed out but i keep getting horrible flash backs, but just snapshots, and i have to run through all these almost photos every time something happens to remind me. If i lean to the left i freak out as that is the way the car rolled. I have nightmares and can't stand being in small spaces, even toilets or kitchens. Cant be in a car on the driver side. Cant drive on country roads, or any where even slightly resembling the road where the accident happened. I feel trapped in this memory. The accident happened 2 months ago and i'm still in plaster. I have 4 broken ribs, sternum, collarbones, arm and wrists, shoulder, and have shredded my knees and i cant walk yet. I go into surgery in 6 weeks to put pins in. But all that is nothing compared to my mental stuff. i hear all about ppl feeling awesome from near death experiances but i DONT, i feel like i am going mad, and i dont know what is wrong!! I heard about this post traumatic stress disorder and I am wondering if anyone knows if i can get it from just a car accident? I thought it was only from war or sexual abuse and stuff like that. But i feel trapped and like i'm losing my shit completely.. Please help if you can! THANK YOU1
