We all (mostly) have incidents in our lives that have terrifying. Near death experiences are horrifying but for some they give life new meaning. Now it goes without saying, don't post if it hits a trigger. That being said, what are some of your scariest moments? How did you handle them? Did it change you and if so how? (doesn't have to be near death, just something that you'll always remember) When I was about fourteen I got into my first serious car accident. I was sitting in the passenger seat of my father's truck reading ElfQuest, my right leg tucked deep into the side of the door and the seat itself. we get to this intersection where I had peered up and saw that the light was red. Well, my father (who was high off his ass at the time) stopped, looked at me and hit the gas. It was almost like slow motion as I look outside just in time to see this car coming right at us. I didn't have time to move my leg, the car slammed into the side of the door and crushed my leg between the metal and the seat. The truck does a tail spin before it comes to a complete stop, people stop what they are doing and a few people are getting out of their cars. My father gets us into a parking lot (though he should have stayed as I was going into shock, moving me was the last thing he should have done) where this lady comes out from nowehere and checks my pulse and everything. She tries really hard to get the door open but no luck, the car had t-boned us so bad that when firefighters came, they had to use the jaws of life to get me out. That was one of the most terrifying days of my life, and I can honestly say that it has driven (ha, morbid pun) me to be a better driver.
