can someone explain this to me... I've always wanted to know.
almost five years ago me and my boyfriend were in a serious car accident, we hit a tree. He was killed in the accident. I broke my back and was flown to the hospital. I really wish I knew exactly what happened... To have some kind of closure but I can't remember a thing! Like I can't even remember driving down the road before we got into the accident. I can't remember getting into the accident or being flown. I barely even remember being in the hospital.
well lots of things can make you not remember medically.
loss of conciseness , head trauma, shock, medication given at the hospital if you had surgery ther is probably a good 5 days you don't remember much. Because you don't remember be for the crash it may be PTST.when you can't emotional handle something your brain just turns it off. I have PTSD and over 10 years I have remembered a little but sometimes I wish I would never see the flashes from the past. I don't think remembering will give you closer, it may just leave you with more questions.
you should talk to your doctor or even a therapist or close friend.
You might have hit your head, had some nervous system malfunction, or you could have blocked it from your mind. When we (as a human race) are in bad, frightening, hurtful, or heart wrenching situations, we tend to block it out of our minds so we don't go mentally insane or hurt ourselves further.
I was just in a bad car accident today. I can only remember short pieces of what happened. But I can't remember what I was doing right before or during. I just remember windows shattering. According to my sister in law and my brother I didn't hit my head in the accident. My brain just knows I can't handle the experience right now so its blocked out.
