Holy monkeys!  :( There's barely any of the front end left! I'm surprised at how little the outside of the rest of the car was affected. If you cropped the 4th picture (to exclude the front and the rear axle) it would look almost undamaged. Man, that front end took a lot of damage. Glad your OK.

Yeah, I hit the trees dead center so the front just absorbed all of the impact. I am really lucky.

Wow! The front is really trashed. I think those motors are suppose to fall on impact so it doesn't get pushed into the interior which might be what happened. The interior except for the airbags didn't look too bad.. no steering wheel in your gut. It looks like it worked like it was suppose to. I think what your feeling might be some shock at what happened. Almost a detachment from yourself. You'll probably feel more normal as time goes on. If not, talk to a doctor about it.  Again, so glad your ok and I would consider it lucky angels with you. Wasn't your time.

You know Madchat, those feelings of detachment are probably common for people who have suffered a near-death experience like you did, especially if you suffered two. I'm not saying you're crazy, but I would reccomend seeing a psychologist once or twice to help sort things out in your head. I did once and it was very helpful in all aspects of my life. In fact, I think everybody should go see a psychologist at least once in their lives. It's really a good experience.

It's also a really expensive experience.

I am in the military so I could probably get help for free... I've had so many people in my Squadron call me and ask about my mental and emotional state moreso than my physical well-being. I am going to talk to a Chaplain about what happened and hopefully everything will work out. I just feel so strange, kinda like I don't deserve to be alive... I feel bad that people have been hurt or even killed in less serious accidents, I mean, I'm nothing great. Why did I get to stay around when so many others have passed on? Ahh damn, I'm getting all emotional now... It's crazy when a forum can make you tear up huh?

That's pretty amazing.  It's good to see you made it out ok.  Thank god for crumple zones, airbags and seatbelts.

I'm sure there was a good reason you lived, Madcat. You can't really tell what's going on until far down the road, after all. Who knows, maybe if you hadn't had the accident and continued as usual something even worse would have happened that day.

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Wow, you're lucky you lived. All comes down to chance, really.
I've had a similar lucky break-when I was a baby, my parents car was hit in the side. Though neither was hurt, luckily I was at home with my aunt. If they had taken me, they would have put me in my seat which was on the side that got hit by the other car.
