Car Accident That Ruined My Life.

Hi I'm Madalyne, I was in a really bad car accident and it completely changed my life, in a bad way.  I will NEVER forgive myself, I hate that this happened to me.  I caused someone to die.  No, i wasn't drunk or on my cell phone, it was an accident.  I dont want to say the details because i don't want anyone to know that this is me. 

has this hapened to anyone? or has anyone had a parent die in a car crash? i want to talk to someone anyone

accidents happen, i was driving with 5 of us in the car, we were all hurt but i was hurt the worst, it cost me my friendship and my family. 8 months in hospital and i still live with pain but i cope. that was 24 years ago and life is good. forgive yourself and thank God your alive. the rest of your life is going to be awesome. yesterday's gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine Lord for my sake teach me to take one day at a time. hope this helps andy

Oh my gosh that is terrible that he killed his own father, I can imagine that that would be very hard to deal with.<br><br />

but this is a person that i didn't know, the persons from where I am but I did not know them. <br><br />
thank you so much for commenting :)

I know someone who did. He was driving with his dad. He fell asleep at the wheel, they flipped. It hurt the guy pretty bad, but killed his father.<br />
<br />
It is a horrible thing, and this guy still has a bad time with it. But punishing yourself forever will not make the person come back. It is okay to let yourself heal. <br />
<br />
It sounds like you knew the person who died. Let yourself grieve the loss. Let yourself hurt for someone who you miss. But self blame only makes everything worse. <br />

I can't think of how many times I have swerved into the wrong lane - and there was no car. How many times I didn't see someone, but didn't wreck. This time - it happened to you. You didn't try to hurt someone. You were just unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong second.<br />
<br />
Why should one second cause you to hurt yourself for the rest of your life. Isn't losing someone you love enough punishment?
