That's the Type 1 PTSD your therapist was talking about? Are you working on this with him?

Some people find a realtively new treatment called EMDR to be helpful... ask your therapist about that.

I haven't really worked on this matter I sort of avoid it because well i don't want to trigger any memory of the event .. I'm a bit of a chiken .. I am a type of person that takes care of how I look and all and after the accident I was completly disfigure now I am okay and everything is healed but i was pretty hidious and don't want o remeber that part of my life at all
