Default crying for no reason

yesterday I started crying, and I cried myself to sleep during the day. then after I woke up, I started crying again.
I couldn't think of a reason. Maybe it's just stress. I don't like to feel scared or sad, I usually turn those feeling into irritation or anger.
anyways..
Today was just fine. I got a lot of stuff done, cleaned and doing all my chores. I even decided to drive across town and drop some tuff off for a friend.
I am a very careful driver. I don't speed, i only pass people if they are driving so slowly it is unsafe. I got to my friends' house, then I drove home. 2 miles from my house a lady ran a red light and i hit her. It felt like a little bump. There were witnesses who stayed and told the police that it wasn't my fault and there was no way I could have avoided her. No one was hurt. my truck that I just got has a dangling headlight but we duct taped it and drove it home after talking to the police. no citation for me. I was shaking like mad right afterwards, and was shaking again when I told the officer what happened. I told him I would never drive through that intersection again. He said I should make myself so it wouldn't be a burden on me. but just the thought of driving there makes me sick to my stomach and I even feel sick right now thinking about it. I don't think I can do it. I was scared driving home, but my son came with my husband and he rode with me.
it was just a little bump and I'm freaked out about it. my heart is pounding I just feel so shaky and sick.
Anyone know when these things will go away?

Last year, I was in a really bad car accident.

After the accident, I wasn't driving for 3 months. I was having nightmares about it. What helped me get back to driving was doing by baby steps and increasing a higher dose of my antidepressants.


Steps I would recommend for you to get back to driving are:

1. Set behind the wheel and familiarize yourself again with the gears, turn signs, steering wheel, etc,
2. If you have a driveway, practice reversing.
3. Drive around the block.
4. Drive somewhere nearby to do an errand.
5. Slowly increase the distance where you are going to drive.

I hope you get better soon.

i agree with dark witch on this one also drive with someone like your husband or a friends and take it one step at a time ok i seen a person get run over and it going to stay with me for the rest of my life but i went over and see if i can do first aid so i did i fell down to the ground from my wheelchair and gave first aid luckyly she still alive.

it is going to be hard to forget about it and you will feel all them things and i havnt got a answer when it go away it could be a life thing but you should ease your way into the car and drive around the corner or to the shops then back dont take it to far.

hope this helps aswell

i make myself drive but i don"t like it. i keep thinking everyone wants to get in an accident with me..super paranoid. And I feel appalled that people will drive without insurance, or with expired anything. like they don't care if they are breaking the law, and it doesn't bother them. And noticing all the illegal stuff on the road, like people driving over solid lines, or doing road rage stuff. it just feels so unsafe now. even though it was a minor accident, and no one got hurt, etc. I just keep seeing all the bad stuff. my son got in an accident last year, now he never drives down that highway. He takes the back roads..a year later. my other son got in an accident and got shoved under a semi truck. his car was totaled. He never wants to drive again. I'm his driver actually. when we go down the highway( not that bad intersection..other side of town) if a semi truck goes by, or we go near one, he get super anxious. I can drive now, just not anywhere near that intersection. my husband drove there with me a couple days ago, I felt like throwing up and peeing my pants at the same time. Maybe i should just force myself like when there's no traffic. I can find out when there's no traffic, like 3 am on a sunday..or monday..or something. and just keep driving through till it goes away.
I feel like a big baby. I'm not even going there today and thinking about it still makes me sick. It wasn't even that bad. Such a negative impact on me.

ok, now I'm crying at video game trailers my kids show me. it has to be stress. according to the other driver's insurance company, she's not cooperating so they can't start fixing my truck. my insurance company won't help. they say I have to deal with the other driver's company. i guess since I'm so chill now, all i can do is burst out crying at random moments while under stress. I drive, but I haven't been down that street. not until..whenever.

My anxiety makes driving difficult too.
Thank goodness the accident wasn't too bad and everyone is ok. Crappy about the insurance company though.
Do you normally feel safe in the car with you hubby behind the wheel?
Maybe he can take you through that intersection a few more time until you are not feeling quite so anxious?
Is that intersection a known issue in your town? Or was it fairly safe until now?

My husband's driving scares me ( shhh..it's a secret). I usually pretend to go to sleep when he drives so I won't see anything. There's other ways around that intersection for now. I've actually been avoiding the whole street. my husband drove on that street but not the intersection, the other day with me to go get some chicken food, i was like "omg omg omg" the whole time. Every time I think I'm completely chill, someone will pop out of a drive thru and give me a heart attack, and then all I want to do is go home. I'm such a chicken butt.
i think that's a bad intersection. there were 3 accidents there at the same time. Someone crashed right before I got there, then I got in my crash, then when waiting for police i saw another crash. It wasn't even that busy. yuck, feeling sick.

Oooh it does sound like a bad spot! Maybe rather than thinking you're a chicken, you are just mere genius for avoiding it :)
