Its a significant element of any trauma, the sudden recognition that we are personally vulnerable, and that bad things can happen to us, as well as to other people. And its also a feature of must phobic anxiety that if it does not receive proper treatment, it generalizes ( that is, the anxiety gets provoked by an ever wider set of triggers ; and that the efforts one makes to avoid those circumstances become progressively more limiting and disabling in one's life.
The good news is that these conditions usually respond extremely well to proper treatment, which ought to include Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy from a skilled psycghologist ( some psychiatrists do it, too ) and medication including meds otherwise also used to treat Depression. DO see a good local shrink fo man assessment and diagnosis, and discuss such treatment options --- you can transform your life back to what it could have been had that dog gone dosn a different road.
