post crash road anxiety

Driving used to be something I loved, but then a day drinking driver rear-ended the truck behind me so hard it pushed me into a busy intersection and oncoming traffic collided into my driver side. Since then, I always feel an uneasy anxiety on the road, and it hasn't gone away after years. I can't even listen to the radio, talk to passengers, or touch my phone when I drive. I'm like hyper aware scared cat every time I get behind wheel. Has anyone else experienced this? How did you overcome it or at least start enjoying driving again?

    This happened to my mother, except it wasn't a day drinker, but a Laquisha. My mother hasn't driven in about two years now and gets driven around by my father.
    I don't know man... take it slow and get used to driving without a lot of people around early Sunday morning?

    see a head doctor because it sounds like it is unironically affecting your day to day life well after the incident. could very well be ptsd

    Good. As for your other question you could act like you're 16 again and go drive around a cemetery or inactive side streets just to get the feel of not getting rammed by braindead zombies back. And then lobby your state government to have at fault drivers executed.

    My tire burst on the motorway and I just barely made it off the next junction two miles away. Knocked my confidence for ages but now I'm driving like a c**t again. Just take your time and keep at it.

    Totally natural. I’ve been in 2 accidents, both my fault. One was pretty big, other was minor. The bad one was me slamming into the back of a van in my dad’s little car and smashing it up real good. Got air bagged and everything. Walked away without a scratch but the feeling of crunching into the car, airbags, the noise, the adrenaline was insane for weeks after. Still have nightmares years later about getting into another accident and all the feeling comes rushing back. Just have to push through it and trust yourself. If someone had gotten hurt in the accident it would probably be worse. You got this anon. Pic related was my car after the accident.

    Two months ago I was involved in a crash that left three dead and eleven cars crashed, including mine. Just accept there is some things that you have no control over, but they are the exception and not the rule. If you found out the world is going to end tomorrow, what can you do? Just cut those variables out of your mind and focus on what you can control.

    It was a drunk mexican going the wrong way on an unlit highway with his lights off at midnight btw.
