    Hi @MrFooseball20 - & welcome to the community. I'm sorry to read that you were involved in an incident where someone lost their life; that certainly must have been traumatic. If, as you seem to say, this has badly affected you, I would suggest talking to your GP about how it has left you feeling. There's also some info in the following link which may/may not have some relevance for you. Please see: https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/types-of-mental-health-problems/trauma/effects-of-trauma/
    Your GP is the best person to talk to & see what they advise, but, may I also say, if we can support you in any way we will try. So, it's always OK to talk here too.

    Welcome to the community. I'm sorry to hear that you witnessed something like that, it must have been awful to experience. The link provided above to the Mind website is a good one, and I'll also echo the thoughts from above that your GP is the best place to start. Have you spoken with them at all?
