  • Hi Drews. Sorry to hear that the accident has got your anxiety levels rising. I think we've all got so used to people being in car accidents that, unless there are obvious physical injuries, we assume there is no injury. But that's not true - any kind of accident can leave a profound shock to the system which takes time to go. I think of it as being like a bad bruise which really hurts at first, then spreads and changes colour and then fades away. So just give it some time and the shock will subside.

    Love, Joella

  • You know Drew, 4 weeks is such a short time ago, so give yourself time to come to terms with the accident first. The after effects of something like this happen days or weeks afterwards. Don't kick yourself, give it time, you'll get there.
