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. panic in cars.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? And what do i do?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
