...so, I am on a huge mission to find out more about myself, ever since my car accident in 2000 I have been a vastly different person, I am only now being treated for the PTSD that resulted from the accident.

but more importantly it changed who I am and I don't really like who I've become...so, has anyone been through the long journey of discovering who they are? where did you start? do you have any tips?

and please, don't give any shit because I already have enough shit going through my head as it is.

Best thing is seek specialist help. I have a friend who had a major car accident and it ended his boxing career. He was screwed up after that and took to heavy partying and drugs and tried to comitt suicide. He got help and is now on the road to recovery thank god.

Yap. You really should go to a specialist. They can provide you with proper help by showing you the road to yourself. You will see finally, you will be able to help yourself and be happy with yourself again.

Good luck mate

do you have any tips?

I highly suggest getting a private pilot's license if you have the funds. The first time I soloed, I realized I was truly and completely in charge of my immediate destiny for the first time in my life. I held at the runway threshold for about a minute, looked at my sweaty palms, a couple of birds going by, the windsock, and thought, "well, it's time to put it all together."

After you become one with airplane, air, and nature, everything looks and feels different - especially the sky. I still stare at it with awe every morning when I go walking. Just a small suggestion, trite as it may sound.

Best of luck to you.

Hey Qantas, one of my really good friends was in a major car accident as well, she was in a coma for around 7 months, she is now starting to walk again. Her personality has changed somewhat, but you know she is still the person she always was. She reacts to alot of things the same way, she would answer a question the same way and she talks the same way. While there definatly has been many things that have changed, she is the same person we have always known, just acts differently at different things. I do not know how that might relate to you, but maybe you have not changed that much. Maybe asides from the obvious things that you feel has had an impact in change, you are the same person.

My gril friends sister was also in a horrible motor bike accident as well, she has changed quite a bit as well, will never drive a car in her life (she has yet to get a driving license or even thought about it). She is very nervous of certain things. In the end though she too is apperently (did not know her before the accident) the same person, just with new 'quirks'.

I would agree with advice from above, professional help would be a good first step. Take care, and good luck on your quest!

Best way I figured out to overcome deep rooted problems is meditation.
Not Yoga-which is something different-but real easy and simple meditation and psycholgical mental cleaning.If you live close to the coast,search a quiet ,a little reomote spot where you can see the horizon of the sea and just let your thoughts drift away.
Learn to re-prioritize the real important things in life and come down to the basics of truth,humane treatment of others,change you diet and eat less meat ,drink less alcohol.
Stop wasting your time with unimportant matters and focus on the ones and the things you like .

Oh I know that feeling. I'm not too sure I'd call that a "finding myself" moment, but it was definitely glorious considering I've wanted to be a pilot since I was nothing more than an embryo.

It also feels good to look down on everybody else from higher up Big grin, That is until you realize the guy flying overhead in the 777 is making $200K a year and is looking down on you from 40K ft while you're tooling along in your little Cessna  blush

You are most certainly not alone. Your journey is one shared by most every single person on earth. You are searching for identity in a world of identicals. This can be very very dangerous ..unless you learn one lesson very quick. There is no answer to the question ... it is a life long journey and you will be asking it till the day you die.

When I feel down and lost in this big world , I usually look outside of my life. I look to people who have suffered so much more than I .. god knows there are plenty of examples. This usually makes me look hard at myself and take account of my good fourtane.

In the mornings when I drive my daughter to school , we pass by a small house in the neighbourhood. The mother , is lovingly out with her daughter at the driveway standing by her waiting for the bus. They seem to be there early most days , and they always seem to be laughing or smiling. We usually wave to them and they always seem happy to get the attention and always wave and smile back. The daughter is , about 13 or 14 years of age .. and terribly handicapped. In a wheel chair she appears to have no legs and very difformed arms. However her smile is just the most illuminating thing when you are feeling sorry for yourself. What keeps her and her mother going ? What insulation do they posses to keep the terrible lot they have drawn in life suppressed and remain vibrant. I am sure the mother struggles with such deep horror , she know doubt has had many many nights of black shaddow. But she get's up every moring ,she dresses her daughter in bright clothing she brushes her daughters teeth , fixes her hair and pushes her out out to the buss stop. She stands there by her daughters side while the other children run by , with there strong legs and beautiful fingers .
How must she question herself ? How must she question god or creation for chaining her to her helpless broken daughter by bonds that can not be severed even if she willed it to happen. So you see , asking your question from anothers point of view is the key to understanding it. In my humble opinion.

I'm still on a long journey of discovering who I am. It started in earnest 2.5 years ago, when I stopped drinking. Since then, life has taken many good turns, and some bad turns, but things tend to even out in the end.

It's sort of weird - I probably couldn't give you a very accurate description of who I am. My friends or family probably could, but I personally am still in the process of figuring it out.

Fairly often over the last 2 years, I've realized that I don't react to things the way I always thought I did. I always thought I was pretty tolerant and easy-going. But I actually seem to be rather stubborn  Smile

I think it's important to realize that you may not have a sudden catharsis or anything, where suddenly all the answers are revealed to you. Instead, it may just be a lifelong process.

In my opinion, the most important thing is to not get discouraged. Life isn't that bad  Smile

Her personality has changed somewhat

mine changed for the worse, I got aggressive (not violent) and started acting angrily to those around me. I asked a friend of mine yesterday what type of person she thinks I am...it also stripped me of my confidence in social situations.

I also think I forgot that life isn't a race to the end...its something to savour.

her reply was this, "Sausha says: you're funny, outstanding, loving, outgoing & an amazing person."

and that's who I was before the accident...and I still think that I am that person but I just lost touch with that side of me.

She is very nervous of certain things.

me too...for 4 years I wouldn't drive a car, I wouldn't take the quickest way home for fear of having to wait for oncoming traffic and possibly being hit from behind, yet I managed to tackle the roads of South Africa, USA, Canada & Europe without any problem, I think that fear comes from the fact that when I did start driving again I very nearly got hit again in the first week...so I avoided a particular spot altogether, in the last fortnight I have started taking the short route home and tackling that fear, albeit at night.

Right now on my student exchange its being a rather rough ride. The past 2 weeks have probably been the hardest 2 weeks of my life. So much has happened it is simply mind boggling. I don't think I've regretted so many decisions ever. Now I am stuck and the people I have betrayed may not want to take me back into their home. I've learnt that I'm quite the backstabber.

My tolerance for myself is quite low, I cannot stand when things don't go how I want them to and lately my only reaction has been to either cry or complain to someone else and this vicious circle of betrayal is catching up to me. How long I have left here I don't know. It seems my mother is getting quite worried about my situation and is actually considering bringing me home. I want to go home myself though.

The horribke thing is I've met a girl, an amazing girl who I love more than I thought I had the capacity to love anything. My mind is such a hateful place but it seems every day she makes me so much happier. Even though she is largely responsible for many of the problems that have gone on. And I have 60 days left to spend with her.

I am worried that I have depression that has come up only recently, I've never been a happy person and suicidal thoughts have plagued me for years but it seems to be getting worse and I feel like anyone I tell is just like its ok you'll get over it. Or just be happy, think happy thoughts or don't be so emo Ben, just get over it.


My search for myself is not going so well but it was one of the main reasons I did this thing. I've never felt comfortable in my own skin but now as it starts drawing to a conclusion I feel like I've only just begun to scratch the surface of myself.

Probably seems rather petty to most but for my small unlearned 16 year old mind this is a pretty scary time.

Man I know , getting older sucks. But , these are lost emotions all you have left is your idea of the feelings, not the true feeling experienced at that time. Dont look back to the past , those are emotions that you expect and calculate the outcome , open up your mind to knew things . Explore for new emotions and dont fear the consequenses of experiencing them.

Fear is the big deterent in all of our lives , over coming it is the real task sometimes. If I could learn to go ahead totally without emotional fear , and with clear purpose ,life would be perfect.

I hope the best for you , keep trying that is all any of us can do.

I have a few 'issues' myself that I'd rather not publicize.

But one part of my day always gives me some perspective and optimism. Every other day when I take the train downtown early enough I make sure I get an east facing window. Watching the sunrise in all its beauty just take my breath away and brings life and all the things in it into a surreal state. That ten minutes is worth waking up early.

For quite a while I've felt pretty miserable--I'd hazard to say borderline depressive. Recently I decided to change my diet and lean more toward fresher foods in smaller quantities. Shifting to a healthier diet and exercising (even if it's just walking) helps out a lot. Also, finding someone to talk to helps out. Maybe you should start taking daily walks with your girlfriend just to vent and cool down.

I tend to find myself when I am either busy or enjoying something 'real'. The answers to a lot of questions about life are either really cheesy or too huge for mere men and women to comprehend. But taking things one at a time and reaching within you to find your inner strength lets you get through the day.

You should tell a loved one about these thoughts and talk about it. Talking about these emotions is always a good way to get rid of them. I think somehow, the more and more you talk about it the more and more you realize there is no reason to feel so gloomy all the time.

Think about it. As a human you have x years on planet earth. In this body with this soul, that's IT. Shouldn't you try to make the most of it? How many sunrises are you going to miss? How many sunsets? How many moments of pure, uncorrupted love? How many joys? There's nothing in the world worth killing yourself over...and this is from someone who has been down that road too many times.

Wake up tomorrow and know that life will get together. 'Finding yourself' is just a synonym for living life to its fullest. You will know who you are when you do that.

Both of those are so true! - I know I may annoy people by constantly refering to "while I am at sea" but when I actually am at sea, if I can take the 10 minutes a day to stand at the bow watching the bow wave curl away from the bow or stand on the fantail/stern and watch the seas slowly rolling by and get myself to let my mind drift it is amazing how peaceful you can feel. Watching the sun dip below the horizon or rise from it while at sea can equally be incredibly peaceful.

I've only read the thread starters 1st post i'll admit,coz i want to be honest. I got hit by a motorbike in 1986 that was doing 80mph on a blind curve.....i got minced n completely Fooked to be honest and i was lucky to survive....needless to say i spent 6 weeks solid in hospital bored Shitless with everyone worrying around me.

I found it soooo scary to be honest because i was 7 years old and i remember the impact, the aftermath and i remember the surgeries, the midnight visits by nurses that thought i was sleeping and the rest of it, and it wasn't pleasant. Did it change me? Absolutely.....

I was scared Shitless, but i made that feeling turn into something else....i have a great sense of humour and i made it a point of making fun at myself when anyone said anything about what happened, and because of that it allowed me to cope with the repressed memories that came to light whilst my brother (older, who witnessed it all first hand) sank into himself!
I woke up and saw the funny side, coz i was so immobilized that if i couldn't laugh then i'd die of boredom! So i made it one big joke that i was too slow to get out the way, coz i know that although it wasn't my fault i still was alive, and that's the best thing!
Some people ask how i can joke about what happened to me, and i say...why not? It happened to ME, and if i want to treat it like a joke then i can.....i'm alive, i'm ok and my sense of humour allows me to project what happened to me in a funny way....it's the way i deal with it. I was young, i got badly hurt but i found a way to make it look good and luckily it paid off for me....i'm alive, i'm in reasonable health and that is alot more than what other people have so i can't possibly complain.
I would say you start by examinign yourself and realizing what you have (still) and what others don;t, and what could've been (for the worst). I suggest you don't look at the negatives, because you still have the positives and trust me.....i almost died, but i was saved and i've never looked back since and i'm so gratefull.

In case anyone is wondering.......i was 7 years old when i was hit by a motorbike in Manchester, England in 1987 on a 'blind corner' at 80 MPH. I survived and my outlook has been great, i've never had anger because what good can it serve! Be yourself, be happy and love life....not many get second chances like us

Edited to say i was struck Jan 2nd, 1987

I don't know what vestibular dysfunction is, but I do know what you mean about trying to start getting better earlier rather than later.

You know, I did pretty well in high school, especially senior year, when I picked it up a notch. Got into a good college, had 2 pretty good years there, 1 OK year there, then suddenly, in what would have been my senior year, I fucked it (and myself..) all up (well OK, it wasn't SUDDEN, as such, but it was pretty unexpected, even to me).

Who knows, maybe if I'd been able to deal with certain things earlier, I would have gotten my bachelors degree 4 years ago like most everyone else in my class.

But at the same time, you can't go back and change the past. Be happy that you're getting things under control now.

May I suggest a boxing training heavy bag.

So much can be learned about yourself from pounding the bag. Set up a timer and try to go 3 minute rounds. Dont just throw punches , try to imagine you are faced with a opponent. Jabbing for defence ,cross countering and slipping combinations. Practice moving from the jab into a right hook with a upper cut combo and slip back out of the counter. Do it until your arms burn and your back feels like burnt rubber. Keep moving your feet ..left and right in and out and imagining the small opening your opponent may give you .. be prepared to strike your opponent with a blow as fast as possible ..then move out and cover. Every action of yours .. imagine the counter action of your opponent.

After a while you can imagine and change the style of the opponent you are fighting. You can make them a quick puncher or a opponent who is trying to ware you down to get one big blow. Work on controlling your mind , work on concentrating wholly on your moves and the moves of your oponent. And most of all , always always finish the round of a with a huge series of punches. Starting with a series of strong jabs , cover your head and move in throwing small powerfull left and right hooks .. then move in with upper cuts .. imagine he is backing into the corner and you are pushing him in. Keep upper cutting and delivering bashing body blows with low hooks. Then back out a half step and fire left and right hooks to the side of the head ... and finish him off with a upper cut to the jaw. Make a real hard push at the end of each round ... beat the hell out of him... now who "he" is... is up to you.
