I was filled with fear and anxiety today.
I don’t like these feelings, and although I am safe, the feelings kept overwhelming my body and I ended up in tears multiple times.
I was driving on the freeway with ML this morning when all of a sudden, the truck I was following dropped a piece of furniture off the back of their pickup truck. They were far enough ahead of me that I got to witness the table fly out of the back and the glass shattering to pieces. The round side table kept rolling down the highway right towards my car and heading to my left. I didn’t know what to do and I was scared. As I braked and thought to move, the table would roll in my direction and I was petrified.
I was afraid to swerve and hit someone and I was afraid to stop and be hit from behind. Everything happened so quickly and luckily I wasn’t in a hurry nor distracted. Luckily the guy behind me slowed down and and swerved around us, avoiding impact. I was thankful and mad and scared.
Luckily I avoided crashing into anything or anyone and was able to proceed. I was in shock and was traumatized but did not realize it right away.
After I dropped off ML, I continued on my way and had to pull over again to process what happened. I cried for what almost happened and was very shaken up.
I am grateful to be alive and will continue to make my days meaningful.
Be safe BeLoveRs and pay attention to your surroundings and give your loved ones a hug!
