I am 43 going 44 and I witnessed my mom being trapped and chased around her car at the age of 5. Know I feel as if I want to trap my mom and chase her around her car

Hello Dinky,

I'm sorry that your younger self was so shocked / traumatised by what happened all those years ago. Traumatic experiences, especially those from childhood, can have a lasting impact on a person. However, I'm sure you realise, as an adult, that there are more awful and traumatic events than someone being chased round a car. Perhaps it's time to sit down with your young self and explain to him that mum was OK in the end and that the nasty man has gone away for good. This is just my opinion and I'm not a therapist. To be honest I think that you'd benefit from seeing someone who is a professional in the field who should be able to help you untangle everything.

Good luck

John.
