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 it. In the first accident, I wasn't wearing my seatbelt and I went into the windshield, but not through it. It caused a concusion and my shoulder is still dislocated because of how swollen my joints are. I hit my head in the second car accident. I thought it would get better with time, but it seems like some parts are getting worse. I can't stand to be in a loud resturant or people in general being too close to me. I was at Barnes and Nobels last night and this kid thought I was his mom, and he grabbed my shirt and that sent me in a panic. I am on a low dose medication, which helps during panic attacks, but I still feel anxious all the time. Am I the only one that has such bad anxiety after a car accident?
