@figgnewton:  Totally normal….being involved in a car accident is REALLY scary and creates a high level of stress on people, add in the fact that there’s damaged property and insurance claims to file, cars to take into the shop and its even worse.   I’ve seen some people feel really, horribly guilty if they’re at fault and just cannot let it go….but you just have to remind yourself its an accident, these things happen and as long as everyone is ok, the rest of it can be fixed….take some time, get some rest, you’ll feel better soon!

@figgnewton:  Anytime…..I’ve gotten phone calls from clients who are crying at the scene of the accident, so I get it….its a big deal and not to be taken lightly….plus, tomorrow you’re going to feel like a rusty gate, if you slammed into someone with any amount of force, your body released a truck load of adrenalyne and then your muscles all simultaneously tensed up which means a ton of lactic acid…be kind to yourself, by next week you’ll be good as new.

First I’m glad that you and baby are okay. Second, it’s (unfortunately) totally normal. I was in a bad car accident 11 years ago (head on collision, both cars were totalled). For a few months after teh accident, I had nightmares at least once a week. I had some problems getting comfortable driving again after the accident. Last week I was driving with a friend of mine in my car, and another car crossed over teh line. I ended up going off the side of the road. I was really freaked out. When I would wake up from a nightmare, I would do soem deep breathing exercises to get myself calmed down. I also talked with a counselor about it.
