Why can't I remember anything about my car accident?
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.Why can't I remember anything?This is the link... link

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.Im sorry for your loss.

Specifically, how did you break your back? Do you see a Neurolgist? If so, has the Neurolgist made a diagnosis?

Why didn't you ask one of your doctors in the hospital about this? :/You probably hit your head, or something. That often makes people lose their memories. Either that or you've repressed them because they're traumatic.
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.
