Jul 5, 2017 · Car accident is taking a toll on me in Mental Health

I just needed validation on whether or not it was a trauma because everyone keeps telling me it could’ve been worse. I think I’ll be okay, but thank you so much for the reply!

Jul 5, 2017 · Car accident is taking a toll on me in Mental Health

I’m 17 years young! I have a job and have been saving up for a car for a long time. I bought it 3 days ago. But I got in a car accident 2 days ago (yes the day after buying it) and it was terrible (to me, at least). I have a question and it is so: is it possible for me, a licensed driver of a little over a month, to be traumatized even tho I didn’t really get hurt and it wasn’t life threatening? I have been having some really bad flashbacks and crying a lot. My grandparents want me to get driving again so I tried to do it and had a flashback of the accident and started panicking. As of right now, I would do anything to avoid driving. I haven’t had that much sleep because it’s hard for me to actually fall asleep. I’ve also been stress eating like crazy. On top of this, I don’t wanna talk to anyone and the people I do talk to I end up lashing out at. I am going to go to a psychiatrist on Friday but I just wanted to know if it’s possible. Thank you (:
