I was run over by a car. Until this day the sound of speeding cars scare me. I still get nervous crossing the street. All this I try not to show it to anyone because I don't want them worrying. Until this day they don't understand how Traumatized I am and how it changed not only the task of crossing the street for me but other aspects of my life. Because they don't see my struggle they think nothing affects me. I don't want to sound like I'm complainig. I'm dying on the inside and I think to myself...maybe I shouldn't have survived.

  • Your feelings are totally valid. I totally understand how you could be jumpy walking across the street..all these drivers today drive so fast and are not looking for pedestrians..even other drivers. You experienced a terribly traumatic event in your life and thankfully survived. There are tons of people out there like you who have been hit by a car or have been in serious car or other motor vehicle accidents that have survived and now how have anxiety over it. It may be worthwhile to speak with a therapist to help you overcome your anxieties. And also let your friends know, you don't have to be alone in this. Don't keep it bottled up.
