thinking about car crashes alot

ok it all started about 5 weeks ago after i all most got hit from behind by a drunk driver. i was on my way going fishing with a buddy when i looked in my rear view mirror i saw a car coming fast from behind me,so i pushed the petal to the floor and if i had not he would have it me.Than about 3 weeks later i was going home from having breakfast with my father, and i stopped in the middle of the road to make a left turn and as i am waiting to let some cars come by i looked in my rear view mirror and the car behind me breaks locked up and i had to floor it, and make a right turn that way she would not hit me. now that those two times have happened i am scared to drive my truck and every time i do i keep thinking about car crashes.my question is how can i get over this?

Re: thinking about car crashes alot

HI Mafiadollar,

im sorry you didnt get a reply to this at the time - i dont know if its too late - hopefully you haave sorted this - but i was scared of driving after a couple of near misses and i found taking small drives and getting used to things again and getting my confidence back that way worked for me - it took a while and gradually i drove further and further and to more crowded areas - and yes i thought about car crashes a lot

IM hoping things are better for you now - let us know ok

take care

MBC
