Just needed a little vent…
I was in a car accident just over a year ago, where my car (which I had just finished paying off the loan for) was written off- someone forgot to stop at a stop sign and ploughed into my drivers door.
I’ve had back and neck trouble since then, and have had several panic attacks when driving for nearly a year afterwards.
2 months ago, I finally felt I had my driving confidence back so bought myself a brand new car 🙂
And someone drove drove into the back of it when I was stopped in traffic today. FML!

Sorry to hear that! I once had a car that got hit about every 2 months (luckily I only had injuries once). The body shop kept a spare bumper on hand! It was a leased car and we always joke that I turned it in way newer than I got it:)
My mother bought me a St. Christopher’s medal (patron saint of travelers). Superstitious, but I haven’t gotten in an accident in 10 years…

Ugh that sucks and I so know how you feel. I have the best and worst luck at the same time. I also have anxiety with driving.
The first week of my first job out of college I had the worst day ever. In the morning I got pulled over and got a speeding ticket. About 10 minutes later I got rear ended at a stop light. There wasnt any damage but it was startling. Later in the afternoon I was driving home on the highway and was merging lanes when I side swiped a van. 2 car accidents and a speeding ticket in one day? Worst day ever. I didnt go to work the next day!!

What color is your new car? My mom is convinced it is all about colors. I drive a light colored car and get hit a lot.

We had a car that was in an accident every Christmas with a different family member…. we got rid of it before it could involve the last person in the family (me). Luckily no one was injured in any of the accidents and they were all caused by the other drivers, but still it was pretty uncanny!
