How Do I Cope With Cheating Death?

Tonight while driving home from work, I was extra cautious since the roads were wet from rain earlier in the day. I was northbound in the right lane on this 3-lane highway when my passenger side front wheel caught a small puddle. I immediately lost control of my vehicle, using all my strength to hold the steering wheel as tight and as straight as I could, foot 100% crushing the brake pedal into the floor. After I saw the first pair of headlights looking directly at me, I closed my eyes and screamed. I felt my car fishtail 3 or 4 maybe 5 times all over the road, bak and forth back and forth, opened my eyes to see myself drifting to the right shoulder into the grass and then, one giant, final swerve, a full 180 turn in fact, I miraculously ended up facing southbound in the median between the two highways. I am completely in shock at this point still screaming, I looked around no other cars were hit or in the grass. Just me, all alone with no passengers thank god. I am alive, but terrified. I don't understand why this happened? Why me? How am I alive? I am thankful but I just have this impending feeling like I cheated death, almost like I feel like he's out to get me now. What do I do?

Cheating death is the best thing that can happen to you. Now you can start living life with no fear.

It sounds weird but you should be very thankful for this.
