I want to hear the negative and the positive. So thanks for your comment. I realize that everyoneís healing process is different, and that means physically and emotionally. I hate that you are having a hard time. I never had nightmares, but I used to think about my accident all day until a couple of weeks ago. My living nightmare was when I was in the hospital and would fall asleep for an hour and be jerked awake from the pain, only to realize Iím thousands of miles away from home and family. I finally feel like Iím set free from my bondage, but I was able to move on because of my faith in God.
I can certainly understand your fear of vehicles. They scare me in general, and I have never even had a traumatic car accident. I just have to stay away from soccer. Will never do that again. Your profile signature mentioned that you still have daily pin, so that would certainly prolong your emotions toward the accident & bring on nightmares & protective tendencies. Eight years is a long time to feel pain. Thankfully, I donít think I will feel pain that long. I think it will always feel odd, but not necessarily constantly painful. Hope you have a better update for us soon!
