                                                              Depression and Your Vancouver Car Accident

                                                                                    It Just Makes Sense


It's not unusual for someone who has been hurt in a Vancouver car accident to become depressed. And when you think about it the whole thing makes sense.

You're in constant pain.  You can't sleep. You can't work. You can't take care of your home.And you can't enjoy any of the sports or hobbies that were such a big part of your life before the accident.

However, to their detriment, alot of people  who've been injured in a car accident seem to place their physical and emotional problems into two seperate categories.

They seem to be willing to recognize, discuss and deal with their physical injuries. But when it comes to grappling with their emotional problems,well, that's a different story.

Unfortunately, many people I encounter seem to be unwilling to acknowledge and deal with the fact that they're suffering from an emotional injury i.e. depression.

Here's the thing. If you aren't prepared to recognize and alert your doctor  to the fact that you're having emotional problems, how are you going to get help ? And in the context of your ICBC injury claim, how are you going to be able to get compensated for a difficulty you haven't tole anybody about ?

The bottom line is this - if you're having depressive symptoms following a car accident, tell your doctor.  It'll be your first step to getting on the road to recovery.
