Big step!

I took a huge step today…  I called Hubby’s employment assistance program to ask about counseling for my PTSD.  1st step on the road to healing.

The PTSD is the result of a brutal car accident 7 years ago when I fractured 2 vertebrae and my sternum.  And it has left me totally terrified to drive.  For the most part I even have some difficulty as a passenger, but I am totally unsafe as a driver as I have a tendency to use avoidance techniques.  I look down when I see something scarey on the roads.  if I see a car coming towards me I will try to get out of the way, things like that.  And I have also been known to have panic attacks in the car too.

Apparently I get 3 free sessions – I doubt that 3 is enough, but it is a start…
