The Dreaded "S" Word ( Just a vent)

**** Venting - nothing stitching related so feel free to skip if you want ****

While listen to the radio this morning while DH was getting ready for work they mentioned that the forecast was calling for 6 inches of the white stuff. It is supposed to hit tonight/early tomorrow morning. I am so not ready for snow. I am really worried that I will not be able to drive in it again this year. Last year on November 18th my Nana passed away, on the 21st was her funeral. We all got dressed and was in the truck on the way to Augusta when we had a pretty nasty car accident. Needless to say that we ended up missing my Nana's funeral and I did not get back into another car until all of the snow was off of the ground. Even after all of the snow had melted I was still quite anxious and had panic attacks for months from being in a car. This last month the panic attacks have been a bit less but not completely gone and now the snow is coming again and I am scared out of my wits.

I have not driven my truck since the accident, it has been sitting in my driveway for almost a year now. I so want to get rid of it but DH is having a hissy fit and wants me to get over it and drive the truck again this winter. I think he is out of his bloody mind because there is no way I am ever getting back into that truck again. Sometimes I just wish he was a bit more understanding. I really don't want to be trapped in the house for 6 months but the thought of being in a car with snow on the ground really freaks me out. Heck I still can't get into a car if it is raining.


  1. i can understand how you are feeling and going through..
    sending you lots of hugs and you are in my prayers xx

  2. I don't drive but I imagine DH is thinking its like falling off a horse and once you drive again with no accidents you will be ok. I think our imaginations and what if's prevent us from doing a lot of things. On the other hand there is no point rushing yourself, you will know when you are ready and you don't want it to be a white knuckle ride. I hope the 'white stuff' doesn't arrive too soon. :)
