    Drive by shooting

    I'm a 25 year old female who just moved to a new city. I was involved in a drive by shooting. I was at the wrong place at the wrong time and it lasted 20 minutes total. We didn't think we were going to get out. And now everywhere I go I think I might get shot. This happened 4 months ago and I still picture getting shot everywhere I go.

    Is there anything I can do to feel safe again?

    Have you tought about talking to a professional to get some help>? Exercises or talk therapy might help you.

    In the meantime, try to always be with someone when you go out to have someone to lean on when you feel anxious...stay in well lit areas where there are people.

    Its a random thing which happend to you and it is not likely to ever happen again, but the world can be a scary place! I hope you'll talk to your doctor about this and get a referral to talk to a professional about what you went through and how to get past it. You will get past it eventually! Its very recent.

    I hope you feel better soon.
