Hi everyone. I'm not writing to ask for sympathy but just advice. I was involved in a car accident today. My car is completely written off, both airbags deployed, seatbelt cut into my throat and my knees went into the dashboard and are badly bruised with fluid retention. I got carried away from the scene on a stretcher and in a neck brace however when my xrays came back fine, I was pretty much sent on my way with some codeine. My neck, my back, my legs, my chest, everywhere is in absolute agony and I just cannot stop crying. How do I stop the pain and the guilt? I haven't stopped shaking since it happened about 14 hours ago. I have tried to do some neck stretches as my neck feels so tight but its way too painful. I will be on my own tomorrow as my parents go back to work so I'm worried if I'm in too much pain I wont be able to fend for myself. Thank you in advance for any advice x
