The Car Crash.

Back in 2015, Michael and I where in a minor road traffic incident. 

The Car Crash.

This was the first I had, with Michael. We where travelling home to babysit for a friend, it was heavily raining and the next thing we know we where spinning. We crashed into a wall and I couldn’t move my legs. Michael called an ambulance and I called my friend for help who came straight away.

I was taken to hospital and after a few hours given the clear, but that wasn’t the end. For about a year afterwards; I had pains in my left leg which would keep me awake at night. I went through physio and finally after 2 years it has stopped.

I had to carry out a car insurance claim, through a car insurance contact.

Ever since I was younger, I didn’t want to drive and this made it 10x worse for me. I refused to ever even think of getting behind the wheel. About a year later we was in another crash due to Michaels Epilepsy, where he lost his licence and it really made me think. How was we going to get around for the next year? What if Michael could never get is licence back? So I set to it, I researched about driving and the theory test and got on it. I started driving lessons and I really had my mind set to it.

I was very nervous at the start but I stuck to it and finally got in my grove. I passed my theory test with a great score of 38/40 and my lessons where going great! My instructor was amazing and helped me all the way through my anxiety. I felt like a new woman. Like I was being silly before, I felt like that until I did my test.

When I did my test, I was extremely confident and so was Michael. I came out devastated because I failed. Apparently I got 18 minors plus a major for driving on the wrong side of the road. The instructor explained where I had apparently done this and the road was so narrow I had to pull into a lay-by to let another car get passed. I couldn’t do it anymore. Ever since I haven’t driven and I am still plucking up  the courage to carry on learning.

I’m hoping by the end of the year, that I am driving and I can have a bit more freedom.

Have you ever had an experience like this? Let me know in the comments below.


Until next time,

    Be patient with yourself – a situation like that can certainly have a long-term impact on you, and that’s ok! Allow yourself to work through it at your own pace and know that your feelings are totally justified *hugs*

  3. I’m sorry you had to experience this – I used to be an avid driver but an accident changed that. I do not drive more than 5 minutes at a time anymore.

    I’m so sorry this happened to you, can only imagine how wary you must be to drive. Well done on passing your theory test, hopefully you’ll be driving by the end of the year, just take your time and I’m sure your confidence will slowly come back. I failed my text 3 times and still haven’t passed it yet!

    A few months ago my car spinned a bit when I had to use the breaks on the motorway and it was really scary! Thankfully nothing happened but I can’t imagine what your experience might have been like!
    I’m sure you can learn to drive and do it confidently if you put your mind to it!! Good luck!!

  7. Oh bless you! I totally get why you’re anxious after everything that has happened. I didn’t pass my test first time and I’m so glad I didn’t!! I passed second and I feel like I was a better driver for it. Dust yourself off and try again 🙂 xxxxx

  10. This blog post is so well-written babe, and I’m sending you all the luck in the world to get driving again by the end of the year babe. I was in a taxi accident a couple of years ago and it’s really knocked my confidence about being in a taxi or being on busy main roads so I can completely sympathise with you. Thank you for sharing such an honest post 🌸💜✨

    With love, Alisha Valerie x |

  11. I’ve heard that this is actually a more common fear than people realize! All you can do is take it one day at a time.


  12. Omg so sorry this happened Becca! This is why I don’t want to drive, it terrifies me!

  14. That is so scary. I’m so afraid to get into an accident. It’s one of my greatest fears. I went off the road when I was 19 (on my freakin birthday) due to icy and slushy roads and ever since then I get panic attacks while driving especially in snow. Unfortunately where I live, you have to drive. There is no public transportation since I live in a small town. I drive about 60 miles on average a day to work and back. I hate it but I have no choice.

    Ive tried desperately to drive, I took lessons when I was sixteen, developed a bad cold and was told to stop being a lay about and go do my lessons and nearly caused a crash so the instructor took me home and never came back.. fast forward to when I was 29, decided I needed to learn again, I explained I had about 10 lessons before back when I was 16 but had bad anxiety and didn’t feel confident in front of the wheel, the guy who taught me didn’t understand and had me in front of the wheel and wanted me to head out into a main road, clearly wasn’t ready pressed the accelerator when I should’ve pressed the break, he told me to park so I did (badly) and he cut my two hour lesson short, said he would call me and never did…

    So I now how zero confidence and never ever want to get behind a wheel again.

      I would definitely suggest trying different instructors till you found the right one, the guy i had was perfect and was completely understanding of my anxieties and took it completely at my pace. I now just have to regain confidence from the fail thats all! x
