Last Sat , i was in a car crash. I hit my head really bad on the steering wheel and blacked out. Its been three days since the crash. My parents bought me a new car. But i can't put myself behind the wheel. When we drive by were the crash was . I curl up begging to go a different way. I haven't been able to sleep for days or eat for days. I want to drive but I'm scared I'm going to get In to another crash. I need help what to do.
Dont focus on the accident it is our thoughts that make us feel bad, a trauma can make you feel like this for many months, but it does pass most times, when you feel you are focusing on the crash switch your thoughts to something else, and keep doing it, that worked for me after a trauma 3 years ago
