Sorry Tristin that you have to experience that. I am sure your story is much worse but I can empathize. I had an accident that caused a serious injury. I happened when I fell 20 feet off a latter. Whenever I see a latter or my X-rays of my injuries, I relive the fall, I feel myself floating backwards in the air. So I can't imagine what yours would be like but I know situations like these can be quite traumatizing. Best wishes on your case.

Tristin, I am sorry that you are having to relive the incident that took away life as you knew it. I didn't have an accident but was plagued with autoimmune issues that cause me constant heavy duty pain. I can only imagine what you are going through. Believe me, I get how traumatizing it is to have to look at what has taken away most of what you used to do and it's very depressing at times. I learned through psychotherapy that I needed to mourn my life as it was as a loss and move forward to accept what would be my "new normal". Then the process begins of learning your triggers, your strengths, what helps distract you, learning how to prepare for occasions or things you need to do and to not be afraid to step back and take a break when necessary. Some days you can do many things and other days you can't do anything. It's ok. You'll get some sort of rhythm. I can tell you that my "normal" changes sometimes daily. I wish I could take that awful feeling away from you. Know that we are all here for you and that you can lean on us. Sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you have a better day and best of luck with your case. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Tristin, I know what is like to flash back and relive a an accident. I had a bad auto accident that led to my neck fusion, and it was my fault for following too close. I was so angry at myself. And doctors ignored symptoms and complaints for 2 years, which allowed inflammation to run rampant through my body, causing a tumor and multiple complications. I've not been able to return to work, and never will. I started angry at the doctors for several years. Then I realized that I didn't intentionally hurt the other car, not did the doctors intentionally ignore my symptoms so the inflammation took old. They were accidents. Once I was able to let go of the anger I was able to start accepting my new changes life. And like AlwayZ said, morning the old and accepting the new is an important processes in learning to deal with the new normal life. I'm sending you hugs, love, & prayers! I oppose that at some point you won't hurt as much when you relive the situation. πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•
