i was in a role over accident a few days ago and there were 3 of us in the vehicle, we are all ok but i feel like the other 2 people are handling the situation way better than i am and it makes me feel really alone, they keep making jokes about it that really bother me and i keep getting upset and crying because the moments of the accident keep replaying in my mind and i keep remembering more details and they don't seem to be doing that at all

Hey something similar happened to me. It took me a long time to be able to even drive again. Just remember, it’s not a race. Everyone heals in their own time. If someone in that car broke their arm…. Would you expect them to heal just as fast as someone with a few bruises? No! You are valid and you are on your own time schedule. You can do this! ❤️
That is such a traumatic event to go through. And everyone deals with feelings differently. I am like you, I feel my feelings as they come and I have a hard time hiding them. As long as you don’t feel disrespected or not validated by their behavior, I think it’s ok to know everyone processes things differently. But if their behavior is causing you more pain I would politely say I’m having a hard time with this can you please not joke about it.
Keep a diary virtual or real. I went through the same thing 3 years ago and can still remember the sounds of the crash. You aren’t alone, it takes time to feel how you use too. But it gets better just remember to breathe and if need be sit with them one by one, so they understand that it left a big impact on your life. You got this
