Hey there I am new to the forum but mybe someone got Tipps for me how to handle this shit.
About 3 months ago I was hiking with 2 friends in the snow, it was icy and the floor was slippy. 1 friend had better Shoes and went down an 1.5 m height. The other friend and me went over the cliff, we didn't know it was one until it happend. My friend slipped but could hold himself at two little trees. Thw Moment he screamed watch out, I slipped too and fell down 18 metres. I broke nothing but I got medium concussion, some scars and several bad days in the hospital. I was brought with an helicopter and the first nicht az the hospital is the worst od my life. I passed out in the bathroom and was in pain all over the place. I was barely able to stand and had blood drawn and given pain medication all night. Now I still got nightmares I wale up at night screaming and crying got the feeling I am falling again and again when I try to sleep. I am afraid to go in the forest again or anywhere where i could fall. What can I do?

Welcome to the forum Winter 912. Sounds very much like you are having some post trauma symptoms. I do not know what the healthcare system is in Austria, but here in the UK you would be advised to see your doctor and either seek referral for trauma-focused psychological treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) or trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy (TF-CBT) or discuss medications that might help.
