Depressed...

15 posts in this topic

Last night I was involved in a pretty bad accident.

I lost control of my car after being cut off by another driver and ended up swerving off the road before hitting a telephone pole. I was with a friend of mine and luckily, she was fine. I was banged up a bit by the impact, but I'll be fine. The car (my IS), was totaled.

I know how lucky I am to have walked away, but I can't seem to shake this depression it's put me in. It's the second accident in under 4 months that the car's been involved in, so insurance is a mess and I likely won't be able to replace the car anytime soon.

I've had a rough year, so this latest incident just adds to everything.

Wow... I'm so sorry, but glad to hear you and your gf are okay. I'm not sure what to say--I sympathize completely because I'm getting absolutely disgusted with New York driving (granted I'm not in your situation).

Wow, I'm so sorry. I know you loved that car. As long as you and your girlfriend are OK. As much as we love our cars, they're just inanimate objects (without intervention from us) and are replaceable. You aren't.

Ouch, Bimmer, sorry to hear of this latest mishap. Please take care of yourself. Another car will come along soon enough.

Well I'm just happy to hear you're okay. Get those bumps and bruises taken care of.

Accidents are terrible, and it seems that once one happens it needs a second (or, in my case, a fourth) to accompany it. What matters most, however, is how you come out of it.

Sorry to hear about your latest accident. There are many more important things in the world than cars. I hate the thought of a smashed up IS, but you guys are ok and things will work their way out.

I'm so sorry to hear that, Bimmer. Glad you and your friend are okay. That's what's important, of course, even though I hate to see the IS get wrecked. Well... Hopefully things work out alright for you. I definitely know how it feels when they don't, and it's the worse possible feeling. I wouldn't want anyone to feel it... Good luck, Bimmer.

I am really sorry to hear about the accident, Bimmer, but like everyone else said, we're glad to know that you and your friend are alright. I have seen too many images on the news of cars wrapped around telephone poles. I am not trying to be patronizing but just be more careful, I guess. I fear the day I am in an accident.

I've had a rough year, so this latest incident just adds to everything.

I know the feeling of a rough year so I can certainly empathize with you.

Glad to know that you both are OK, except for bruises. And, I hope things start to look up for you soon.

Sorry to hear about the accicdent, but glad to hear neither of you are hurt.

The depression part can be a tough one. Being the car freak, would looking at new cars brighten you up? Now you have an excuse to test drive everything on the lot.

Woah!

Good to hear that you're okay. I hope you don;t get bummed out for too long. I know it's sad to loose a car that you're emotionaly invested in but a car can always be replaced. Get "well" soon buddy!

P.S. pics of the IS?

i tried replying earlier but didn't have the right words for ya. don't think i have them yet, but here it goes anyway, first i am glad you're still doing fine. you're a smart guy and obviously passionate about your car, thus your depression is understandable. this is after all a big accident, and in your first car, a really nice car at that [especially for someone young]. i think this experience and your resultant emotions will ultimately be good for ya

I feel bad about what happened but am relieved that you are ok. I have never lost a car in that manner, but I can empathize as to what that would be like.

About the depression: it is TOTALLY normal to feel that way after things come in doses or waves that don't make sense. If it continues, seek help from your doctor, even if it involves medications. What you will see is that the situation will rectify itself. (Every depressive bout I have ever had ends). As smart and together as you are, there are many things that will propel you upward despite the loss of a car, though the trauma and the physical discomfort are transitional and have to be reckoned with.
