    I was riding behind a buddy of mine when he hit the rear end of an automobile. He suffered a very gory injury, and died in my arms.

    I was 19. I quit riding motorcycles until I was 48. Then, during my adulthood I spent time flying air rescue for the Sheriff's Office, working for a paramedic agency, and doing some street police work as well.

    Recently while undergoing counseling for a divorce, the psychologist I was seeing, whom I trust very much, said "You have all the signs of PTSD." Learning this and focusing counseling on this largely "forgotten" part of my life has been quite beneficial.

    I hope the OP will seek professional help in dealing with his thoughts, rather than sublimating them deep into his brain. "Forgetting" about these issues is the worst you can do.

    Ride safely,
    Steve
